The Fresh Food Company surveys have come and gone, and in their wake, changes are coming to the campus dining scene. These new eating options will be available to students, faculty and staff beginning during the fall semester.

The University Center’s Bear Rock Café space is transitioning to become The Farmer’s Market, a convenient hub for fresh salads, soups and sandwiches. The venue will only be open for lunch hours, 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. It is not yet finished or open for business.

Studying is becoming more delicious this fall as Mercer’s Jack Tarver Library adds Einstein Bros. Bagels to its first floor. Einstein Bros. offers a wide variety of bagel flavors, soft drinks, fresh salads, sandwiches, coffee, and other snacks during Tarver’s operating hours. It will have a soft opening Thursday and Friday, and officially open for full operating hours Tuesday, August 18. Both The Farmer’s Market and Einstein Bros. Bagels will join the University Center food court’s Chick-fil-A, Subway, and Burger Studio as part of Mercer’s meal equivalence a.m.-3:00 p.m. It is not yet finished or open for business. Studying is becoming more delicious this fall as Mercer’s Jack Tarver Library adds Einstein Bros. Bagels to its first floor.

Both The Farmer’s Market and Einstein Bros. Bagels will join the University Center food court’s Chick-fi l-A, Subway, and Burger Studio as part of Mercer’s meal equivalence program and will accept dining dollars.

More food options will be coming down the line with the addition of the newest development on Mercer University Drive, the Lofts at Mercer. The plans include a restaurant and two food courts. Though the restaurant has not been made public yet, the Student Government Association surveyed students last year to find out what restaurants they would prefer.

Those options included The Brick — a popular pizza joint in Milledgeville — Cook Out, and the Varsity.
