At a time of year when many farmers markets are on hiatus, one is at its peak: Emory Farmers Market.
The market is tied to the academic schedule, so it’s closed during university breaks, including summer. But when class is in session—right now—the market is at full throttle. The arrangement gives vendors and consumers another way to connect during the lean winter months
Conversation grows about Georgia olives
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
The climate of South Georgia can never pass for that of the Mediterranean. Humid and ferociously hot in the summer, prone to extended frost in the winter, it’s not exactly a beach vacation on a Greek isle.

Emory University began a discussion about the sustainability in our food system in 2007 with the creation of the Sustainable Food Committee. From this group of faculty, staff, and students came the direction and implementation necessary to meet an ambitious goal set for the University—75 percent of all food served in Emory’s cafeterias and hospitals must be sustainably grown or from local sources by the year 2015. This is no easy task for an institution the size of Emory, and particularly difficult in the era of globalization when the average piece of food travels 1,500 miles before it reaches your plate.

Emory Sets World Record May 2011
Emory University in Atlanta, GA recently set the world record for the longest fish taco. In the Dobbs University Center on Feb. 16, students and staff from Emory Dining’s Green Team filled tortillas with sustainable cod.
College students at Emory University participated in a big taco promotion earlier this year. The university partnered with Alaska Seafood and got to work on a line of fish tacos that stretched to 121 feet long.
With the right venue opportunities, onsite operators can successfully tap offsite customer traffic.
The next time someone you know raves about “a great little bagel joint” they just visited, consider this: such word of mouth advertising can work just as well to build onsite transactions as it does for streetside businesses.

Heritage breed turkeys, once considered the most critically endangered domestic animals of all time, have made resurgence with the help of Emory's annual Thanksgiving feast.
November 22, 2010
It may seem counterintuitive to encourage eating an endangered breed to preserve it. But that is what Emory has been doing for the past two years with its purchasing power by creating a viable consumer market for Heritage turkey.
