The Winter Market season is upon us!
It’s a common misconception that fresh produce does not thrive in the Piedmont during the Winter. The reality is that tasty, fresh veggies grow during our cold months. Collard greens, sweet potatoes, cabbage, kale and spinach are just a few of the nutritious veggies that can be found at the Winter Market every Saturday from 10 am-Noon. Not only do all of these veggies grow no more than 70 miles away from Durham Central Park, but they are also nature’s way of providing our bodies with the nutrients it needs to fight typical cold weather illnesses. Round out your shopping trip with local meats, cheese, fresh bread and so much more, including locally made chocolate!
As a reminder, the Durham Farmers’ Market Food Programs run throughout the entire year! We accept SNAP and offer cash matching for customers that participate in SNAP or WIC. And don’t forget about the Double Bucks program, which matches SNAP and cash matching transactions up to $10. Want to learn more? The Durham Farmers’ Market Food Programs were recently featured on Healthy Durham 20/20’s website.
Bundle up and we’ll see you at the market!
