The market is orchestrated by American University Wellness program and  Agora Farms, an intermediary for bringing Amish and Mennonite and “English” farm goods to American University campus Wednesdays, as well as to D.C.’s Historic Eastern Market on Saturdays and Sundays. Complementing the Market is Upper Crust bakery’s stand  with wonderful breads. Raisin Pecan, Harvest Grain, Pain de Campangne, Jalapeno Cheddar, Sourdough, Challah, Whole Wheat, Focaccia, Black Russian, NY Rye, Artisan Baguettes, Tea breads, Chocolate Chip Cookies, mini pies and cobblers. Whether students care about locally grown food, baked goods, or not, the convenience of having fresh food right on campus makes it hard to avoid. “We see a nice traffic flow, with many repeat customers,” Rebekah Anderson, an international politics grad student at AU who works for Agora Farms, said.  “We serve more than just students, we serve the local community as well,” she said, adding that “the market’s location is the closest weekly farmer’s market in the neighborhood surrounding the campus.” One of those weekly customers is Lindsey Flick, a senior in the School of International Service. Flick, who is committed to eating locally sourced food, said she usually picks up green beans, potatoes, bread and the Amish cheddar cheese. Above all else, it is about convenience for Flick. “I don’t have to seek out other markets,” she said.
