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. The loss of income during March and April 2020 due to the COVID-19 shut down has nearly depleted the small amount of reserve savings we maintain for emergencies. Our farmers and craft vendors are struggling to remain in business themselves with the extended STAY-AT-HOME orders. They continue to depend on the DFM infrastructure to help them reach customers. We are reaching out to supporters to help us recover and move forward in support of our members and our community. 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.
