The Rue and Gwen Gibson Farm Market was originally a humble fruit and vegetable stand on the corner of Chestnut and Barstow created to sell the student's produce from the Jordan College of Agriculture Sciences and Technologies over 25 years ago. Over time, the students and enterprises created new products and produce available at the market to help fund the University Agriculture Laboratory (UAL). The products are created on campus and are divided into different enterprises that are operated by dedicated faculty and enterprise technicians who work closely with students in managing a field, product or product line. Today the Rue and Gwen Gibson Farm Market carries products from various enterprises from five different departments.
Our products are processed, produced, created, and/or harvested by Fresno State students and enterprises. Proceeds directly support the students and enterprise UAL Farm system. This allows us to purchase new equipment and create new products, which provides the students with valuable hands-on instruction during their college education.
Our store is operated by students who share a passion for agriculture and farm fresh products. Students currently enrolled at Fresno State can apply to work at the Rue and Gwen Gibson Farm Market part-time during the semester and full-time during summer.
