Campus Community Invited to Attend Summer Barbecues, Shop Farmer's Market


In a nod to the fun and casual days of summer, Case Western Reserve University community members will have an opportunity to eat or purchase their meals, fruits and vegetables in a more festive environment. That's because Summer Barbecues will return starting Wednesday, June 10, and a farmer's market will be up and running beginning Friday, June 5.

Sponsored by Bon Appétit Management Company, the Office of Summer Programs, Campus Services, and the Office of Student Activities and Leadership, the Summer Barbecues are an annual tradition designed to bring the campus community together in an atmosphere featuring festive food and music. Five different menus and musical styles are planned for each Wednesday beginning June 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 on the Crawford Deck. The events are open to the public, and friends, visitors and family are welcome to attend. Each barbecue event costs $7.75 per person (including a beverage), or $35 for a book of five tickets purchased in advance. Go online for more information about the specific menus and musical selections.

Beginning Friday, June 5, Bon Appétit will hold a farmer's market each Friday through September from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. outside the Biomedical Research Building (BRB) atrium. Produce will be provided by City Fresh, Veggie Valley and Kaskey Farms. The marketplace is cash only, and will be held inside the BRB atrium in the event of inclement weather.
