The article discusses a mini-concept called MarketFresh, which offers organic food to a retail café at the University of Kansas in Lawrence. Most of the items on sale at MarketFresh carry brand names that students could recognize, such as Organic Valley, Bear Naked and Applegate Farms. The implementation of MarketFresh follows KU Dining's introduction of organic and vegan bread from a local grocery cooperative known as The Merc.
