The Durham Farmers’ Market is open on Saturday April 9 from 8-12!

We are very much looking forward to welcoming a new animal loving guest vendor to the market – Dog Door Pet Food!

A former nurse turned business owner, Stacy brings her love of healthy food and pets together with advocacy for quality, locally sourced food. We source as many ingredients as possible from local farms and businesses. Our single ingredient, real meat treats are slowly dehydrated with no additives, preservatives, grains, or gluten.

Market is Open Saturday March 26 from 10-12! + the Map!

Join us on Saturday March 26 to celebrate the last Saturday of the season that vendors and staff can still get closer to a full 8 hours of sleep!  Let’s be real though – catching those stars at dawn and breathtaking sunrises are some of the many reasons that we love showing up early every Saturday in the main season – starting on April 2.  I know you early birds are going to be happy for that 8 am start time!!!  On this last “winter” market of the season, we ask that you respectfully wait for the bell to ring right at 10 to start shopping.

  • Red Hawk Farm returns for the spring!
