If you're visiting the Fresno area be sure to check out the Farm Market for some produce, ice cream, and wine. The Fresno State Farm Market is located on the Fresno State campus on the corner of Barstow and Chestnut. The Market's products are produced on campus by Fresno State's agricultural department. Produce depends on the season and can be anything from corn, peaches, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, grapes, etc.

Produce is seasonal but the Market has a number of other products for purchase such as nuts, raisins, jams, bbq sauce, salsa, ice cream toppings, and honey- just to name a few. The Farm Market has its own meat department with a variety of sausages, steak, and other meat cuts.

This brings me to the best part of this market- the wine and the ice cream. The dairy section consists of cheese, some of the freshest milk I have ever had, and some of the best ice cream I have ever had! I suggest picking up a pint or a brownie or cookie ice cream sandwich.
If you're looking for something a bit more refined pick up a few bottles of Fresno State Wine. That's right, Fresno State has their own Viticulture and Enology department; and the wine sold in the market was grown and produced by Fresno State students. The market features a variety of red, white, blush, and dessert wines. I suggest trying the Petite Sirah for a red and the Muscat for something sweet but they're all good!

Store hours vary depending on season. Fall/Winter hours are Mon-Fri 9am-6pm; Sat 9am-4pm; and Sun 11am-4pm.

Directions: Corner of Barstow and Chestnut on the Fresno State campus in Fresno, CA.
