The Durham Farmers’ Market has been a community destination in downtown Durham since 1999 thanks to YOU, our loyal customers and supporters. Over the years we have grown the market and continue to provide Durham with an event every weekend that nourishes the soul of our city.
You may not know that the market operates primarily off of the weekly stall fees from our farmers and artisans. Despite this modest budget, we are constantly working to make fresh and healthy food accessible to our entire Durham community. We want to continue expanding the offerings of our market and need your help to make this happen.
The Friends of Durham Farmers’ Market program provides an opportunity for you to invest in the future of the market by making recurring or one-time contributions via PayPal or check. Examples of how we will use the funds include expanding our children’s programming, continuing our outreach efforts to underserved communities in Durham, developing our nutrition education programs, and increasing staff hours. In addition to being part of a community effort to support others, a Friend of the Market will receive a button to proudly display on their trusty market tote.
We know that for some, resources are tight. If donations are not an option and you do not have time to volunteer, you can share what we do or visit us on Facebook or Instagram. We invite you to invest in your market.
Please continue stimulating our local food economy and join our effort to build a stronger, healthier Durham!
We also accept checks payable to the “Durham Farmers’ Market.” Please write “Friend of the Market” in the memo and mail to P.O. Box 1903, Durham, NC 27702. Please note that these donations are not eligible for a charitable tax deduction.
