We hope you are enjoying the first week of spring and that you are looking forward to a time of renewal and growth. And we also hope the weather will warm up soon so we can all get outside and into our gardens!
Save the date for the CROP Walk on Sunday, April 7! Part of the funds raised through the walk support our Double Bucks program, which can match SNAP/EBT transactions dollar for dollar up to $10. Since we started accepting SNAP/EBT in 2014 and launched the Double Bucks program, more than $72,000 has been spent on local, fresh produce, meat, eggs, cheese, bread and more at the market. We are incredibly grateful for the CROP Walk’s generous support and look forward to this community event. Check out their website for more information and don’t forget to join our Durham Farmers’ Market’s team!
Big news! The Main Season Market kicks off on Saturday, April 6 and we’ll return to our regular hours of 8:00 am-noon. This will be our 20th anniversary season and we’re excited to celebrate with you over the upcoming months. We’re planning several special events so save the date for our first event on April 20 from 9:00-11:00 am. Also, don’t forget to re-stock on your mid-week groceries at our Wednesday Market, which begins on April 17 from 3:00-6:00 pm. We have spring fever and cannot wait to jump back into the main season with you! Until then, prep your garden beds and enjoy the remaining weeks of stillness before the hustle and bustle of the spring season arrives.
