In keeping with our mission to enable healthy minds and bodies and per Washington University guidance, Wellness Connection is suspending the WashU Farmers Market effective immediately until further notice to reduce any risk of disease transmission for our employees and vendors.
To support our local vendors during the suspension, our vendors have provided alternative options to shop their produce and goods during this time:
Howie Farms: Delivery service is free for orders over $25 with same day delivery if ordered before noon.
