We’re excited to spend the holiday weekend together! You’ll find goodies for everybody’s Easter baskets at the market tomorrow. We’ve got you covered with tasty treats, handmade gifts, plants and much more. Make a date with your favorite food producers on Saturday morning and support your community while celebrating Easter and Passover.
We hope you’ll join us for our 20th anniversary kickoff celebration tomorrow! Chan Little from The 360 Approach will host a family field day on the lawn. There will be activities for kids and adults and everyone is encouraged to get involved in this fun event.
In an effort to become a zero-waste market, we’ll be handing out free canvas tote bags tomorrow. If you have extra reusable bags at home, please bring those and we’ll share them with customers as the season continues. We’re excited to share our other zero-waste initiatives as we all work together to take care of our Earth.
Please mark your calendars for a special event at Durham Central Park on Friday, April 26. Yoga Off East and SYNCStudio are hosting a yoga fundraiser to benefit the families affected by the gas explosion. 100% of the proceeds will contribute equally to the Lee family and other Durham residents and employees impacted by the accident. For more information, please visit their website.
Finally, we hope you’ve seen the Compost Now bins at the market. We’re happy to announce that waste recovery will be provided by Gather Green and Compost Now. If you enjoy a tasty treat at the market, be sure to compost any items you can in these containers.
