FRESH, AFFORDABLE, HEALTHY: BRADLEY’S MINI FARMERS’ MARKET
Updated: Feb 25
(From Bradley University) On Friday afternoons Olin Quad transforms into Bradley’s own version of a mini farmers’ market as student shoppers marvel at the selection – and price – of fresh fruits and vegetables at Market 309 at Bradley.
“All of this, for a dollar?” asked one surprised shopper. The question was a delight to Julie Eliathamby, founder of Peoria Grown, which operates Market 309 at several Peoria locations as a community initiative to promote access to affordable, nutritious food.
