The Purdue Farmers Market is organized by Purdue Campus Master Planning and Sustainability in conjunction with Greater Lafayette Commerce and includes a variety of fresh produce, herbs, plants and flowers, meats and locally prepared food, including lunches and sweets.

Due to nearby construction, patrons will not be permitted to drive on Memorial Mall Drive or Oval Drive surrounding the market. Guests and individuals without a parking permit may pay to park in the Grant Street Parking Garage. Those with an “A” permit may park in the Grant Street Parking Garage or the lots between Marsteller and Sheetz streets.
