Campus Candid II

The inaugural Urban Fruits & Veggies farmers market at Canisius was a big success!  The mobile farmers market rolled onto the Canisius campus this past Monday and sold out within an hour.  But don’t worry!  Increased inventory for next Monday’s market will ensure plenty of fruits and veggies for all.

The market sets up shop in the Bagen parking lot each Monday from 2:00 – 4:30 p.m. through October 16.  Please note Urban Fruits & Veggies will not be on campus July 3, September 4 and October 9 since the college is closed on those dates.

Urban Fruits & Veggies accepts cash, credit and debit cards and is open to anyone who wishes to purchase fresh produce or fruit.

Canisius in the News

Josh Russell, PhD, assistant professor of animal behavior, ecology and conservation, studied the effects of pet loss on children. When children suffer the loss of a pet, they often describe it as “the worst day of their lives” and feel a member of the family has died.  He recently discussed this research in an article in The New York Times.
