There’s a crisp breeze in the air, multicolored leaves falling from the trees, bikes whizzing past and the bustle of the ASUO Street Faire nestled on 13th Avenue in the middle of the University of Oregon campus. A few days during each fall and spring term, the Associated Students of the UO host a wide variety of food vendors, jewelry shops, clothing stands, and more for local enjoyment. We spoke to a few of the food vendors about which dishes students enjoyed most, as well as something the young college-goers may not know about them.
