LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State University is preparing to open an on-campus store selling products made by students at the Las Cruces school.

The Las Cruces Sun-News (https://bit.ly/1aD2Kvu) reports that plans call for opening the store in Gerald Thomas Hall in late summer.

It’ll initially feature gelato, sorbet and mixes produced by a food science class, but College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences administrators hope it will eventually offer other foods as well.

Those could include offer meat products made by animal science students, cheeses provided by food science students, and vegetables grown by horticulture students.

Crews have begun asbestos-abatement work in the space, and construction is scheduled to start next month.
