8 Reasons To Go To The Geneseo Farmers' Market

If you're ever looking for something fun, or a way to procrastinate your work a little more, look no further than the Geneseo Farmers' Market. The Geneseo Farmers' Market is every Thursday from 3:00 P.M. - 6:30 P.M. at the intersection of Main St. and Center St, until October 20th and it is definitely worth checking out.

1. Support Local Farmers and Businesses

Local vendors from the area come together to offer a wide variety of fruits and vegetables that are all grown locally. This is definitely a good way to get some healthy food worked into your everyday dining hall diet.

2. Strengthen Community

It's always cool to see students, "townies," and business owners come together as one Geneseo community. Main street is always bustling with activity, especially during the farmers' market.

3. Donuts

THE DONUTS ARE SO GOOD! This is my personal favorite thing to buy at the market. The apple cider and pumpkin spice donuts are a staple of the farmers' market and if you haven't already tried them, I highly recommend you do because they are fantastic.

4. Apples

Another thing I buy every week. There are always a wide variety of types of apple to buy and right now is the perfect time to buy apples since they are currently in season.

5. Cheesed and Confused

The well known grilled cheese truck is always stationed at at the farmers' market ready to serve various types of delectable cheesy goodness. (Definitely try the mac and cheese grilled cheese... just saying.)

6. Dogs

Whenever I go to the farmers' market, I always run into at least one dog. Seeing dogs on campus and in town always makes my day.

7. Promote Healthy Eating

A majority of the stations offer different fruits and veggies along with different teas and spices, which adds some variety to the typical college diet.

8. Fun

Going to the farmers' market is always a good way to mix up your everyday schedule and be a part of the community. I definitely recommend taking advantage of it this fall.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
