Join us for the last Winter Market of the season on Saturday, March 30!

We hope you’ll join us tomorrow for the last Winter Market of the season. Wahoo! 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 hope you’ll join us at the CROP Walk next 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 the Durham Farmers’ Market’s team!

Finally, mark your calendars for CFSA’s Annual Piedmont Farm Tour on April 27-28. You can purchase your buttons and pick up a map at the Info Table. This is an event you don’t want to miss!
