Is it possible to label foods at homestyle, chef's corner, and the soups for allergens. i.e is it possible to have under the sign *contains: soy, milk, gluten etc. I have a lot of food allergies and it would make food selection a lot less stressful!

Good news – we will be expanding our labeling next fall to identify items that contain dairy and eggs, in addition to identifying  when items are vegan, vegetarian and gluten free!

It is possible to have grilled tofu stocked at the grill station during the week?

It’s there, please request it!

I've noticed the cashiers are charging extra for salads piled "high" on the salad plates... Is this supposed to be happening? It doesn't seem fair to be charged for a large while using a medium plate - the sign says salads are charged according to plate size. :(

If you...

“bring back the cheesy pasta ! also in the buffet, the soy chicken and soy beef with, i think italian, rice looking pasta was incredible. you had these dishes a few weeks ago and they were back to back. i need more good vegan cheese in my life.”

You’re enjoying our two great vegan cheeses: Follow Your Heart Mozzarella and Daiya Cheddar, and all the wonderful things we do with them. The pasta shaped like rice is Orzo. Thank you for letting us know you like these items and we’ll keep them in the rotation!

“Is your chicken raised without antibiotics?”

We purchase chicken from many brands and a few different distributors. The majority of the chicken served in the Marketplace is from big brands brought to us from Sysco, and of that, about 35% is antibiotic free. The other 65% is ambiguous (i.e. whether or not antibiotics are used isn’t...

“friday, 2/24: poke bar was so delicious!!! THANK YOU! please have it again!!!”

We repeated the Spicy Tuna Poke Bowls on March 10!

“Are students allowed to bring their own reusable container when buying food from the marketplace given the shortage in eco clamshells?”

No, our local health department does not allow us to serve food into personal to-go containers. We have ordered and received a new supply of eco-clamshells, so the shortage is over for now. We still encourage everyone to bring back your containers promptly please.

“does oxy sell kombucha anywhere? if not, can it be offered? thank you! :)”

The Marketplace carries two flavors of Kevita MasterBrew Kombucha...

“I submit for consideration Detroit style coney dogs - http://amazingribs.com/recipes/hot_dogs_and_sausages/detroit_coneys.html
I personally make them with just ground beef and no beef heart, but it's a really easy recipe to scale to huge quantities!”

We hope you came to Homestyle on Friday February 17 – we served Coney Dogs – minus the beef heart ;-) Thank you for the suggestion – the station was a hit.

“Hi there! I love being able to have waffles on the weekend but I was wondering if there's almond extract in either the waffle batter or the syrup? I was hoping that maybe you could decrease the amount in there? Thanks!”

We purchase a waffle mix in two varieties – Vanilla and Multi-Grain. Neither lists almond extract as an ingredient.

“I love the vegan muffins! At the end of last semester you made...

"Hey! Is there any way we could get large individual pickles for sale? I love a big juicy crunchy dill pickle as a snack and I'm sure other people do too. I have seen them individually packaged before but a big jar of them would work too. Thanks!"

Yes! The Marketplace now carries individually packaged dill pickles. Look for them in the Grab & Go.

"I saw that you already responded to a request or sushiritos but I just wanted to second that and say that was so good and it would make my semester to see it on the menu again! I also wanted to ask if it is possible that pho could be served? Thank you for all you do the food is wonderful!!"

Sushiritos were on the menu for lunch on Friday 2/10/17. We hope you enjoyed them! Your request for Pho is noted J

"would it be possible to get baguettes in the marketplace at the sandwich bar? thanks"

Your wish is granted! The Marketplace is pleased to announce that we will have a Baguette available at the Deli Station beginning 1/30/17. We will start out in small quantities and see how things go from there.

(Tiger Cooler) "Sour skittles should be sold up front sometimes!"

While our supplier does offer the Sour Skittles, they do not come in the 36ct boxes we typically carry. We would unfortunately have to stock the smaller boxes, but they would be at a price that seems unreasonably high to us.

(Tiger Cooler) "Please bring back the seaweed snacks!!"

The seaweed snacks are back. This is a new item, and sometimes it takes us...
