"I really love farmers markets," said Jessica Mackool, director of food service at ARAMARK, Berklee's dining service provider. "My family has a farm stand at a farmer's market in my hometown. I wanted to showcase some of the healthy, fresh, local offerings we use daily in our dining operations to the Berklee community and our neighbors. Spring is the perfect time to wake up our taste buds, and we can be even more sustainable and lower our carbon footprint by bringing the farm right to us."
