Thank you, please come again?

Colorful jugs of aguas frescas, fresh produce, pressed juice and hot tamales are a few of the items available for purchase at the farmers market at Pierce College.

Booths, set up along strip of land by the Equestrian Center, provides an area for students, faculty and community members to support local vendors by purchasing the fruit of their labors. From chips and guacamole to a bundle of berries, the offerings were plentiful.

The farmers market debuted on July 5 and was scheduled to run every Thursday, from 9a.m. to 2p.m.

But the market was open for only three weeks before taking a six-week hiatus due to heat conditions. It returned Sept. 6, for what might be the last time.

According to an email from the Market Manager Sarah Seelinger, the farmers market is unable to continue at its current location due to low sales.

The weekly event on campus is gone for now, but Seelinger hopes the school might allow it to re-open at some point on the Mall.
