Rue and Gwen Gibson
In 2011 a generous benefactor, Joyce Mae Gibson, donated $1.2 million in memory of her parent's love for the San Joaquin Valley, agriculture and education. This donation ensured the launching of the Fresno State Farm Market into a whole new chapter. The donation was used to design and construct the brand new farm market, improve equipment and help the market grow with the addition of an ice cream counter and more space than ever before. The Rue and Gwen Gibson Farm Market was opened in March 2013.
