Sign up for a volunteer shift here. We cannot thank you enough for your dedicated time and support!
You probably already know that it takes a lot of work behind the scene to make the Durham Farmers’ Market happen every week, all year long. The DFM maintains staff to run the market and has ongoing expenses for renting the Pavilion, insurance, providing community outreach programs and special events. These expenses are all funded by membership and vendor booth fees that are generated week to week. With the market being closed during extended stay-at-home orders, and having limited space capacity for our usual number of vendors per distancing requirements, the market continues to lose hundreds of dollars per week. The market has also incurred added expenses to maintain COVID-19 public health guidelines including additional labor, signage, PPE, technology and more. If you are able, please make a gift donation today to the DFM Friends of the Market fundraiser so we can continue serve Durham.
Thank you in advance for your support of the Durham Farmers’ Market! We look forward to seeing you again.
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.
