We hope you’ve been enjoying the flavors of the season! Now is the time of the year when you can literally eat the rainbow. You’ll find just about everything you need at the farmers’ market so be sure to stop here before visiting a grocery store. Plus shopping at the market is always fun!
Tomorrow we’re excited to host the Homefries Kid’s Cooking Class! Swing by the lawn to see what local foodie Susan Sink is whipping up with the young chefs. You’ll surely get some inspiration for a meal you can cook this week, too!
We’re happy to announce that the Durham Farmers’ Market has a brand new website! We’ve been working hard to create a beautiful and useful website that everyone can enjoy. And we want to give a huge THANK YOU to the team at Registered Creative for creating such a fantastic new website for our community.
Also, you’ve probably heard about the challenges that farmers’ markets across the country are facing with the closure of the Novo Dia group, which is the company that we use to process SNAP/EBT transactions. One of our values at the Durham Farmers’ Market is to ensure fresh, local food is available to everyone in our community. We are proud to accept SNAP/EBT and Farmers Market Nutrition Program vouchers. We have been working closely with our partners at RAFI and the Durham County Department of Public Health to address this situation. We want the community to know that there will be NO disruption in service at the Durham Farmers’ Market. We will continue to accept SNAP/EBT and customers will have the same experience at the market. In addition, all SNAP transactions will be matched up to $10 with our Double Bucks program. We are committed to ensuring that our community has access to fresh, local food.
