Your fresh and local summer meals await!

It’s a Saturday morning market in August and the temps are looking perfect! Celebrate this break from the heat with a visit to the market and enjoy live music and poetry, handmade goods, seasonal produce, delicious meals, & more!

National Farmers Market week is just around the corner, August 6-12th, and we will be highlighting some of the most wonderful ways that farmers markets help our communities, environment, and local economy in the days to come. None of this would happen without you, and we are so grateful for all of our neighbors who call the DFM their home for shopping local. If you have a moment to spare, we need your help this summer during the America’s Farmers Market celebration and market competition. Scroll down to read more about the $5,000 we could win to help fund important market programs, and cast your vote! Thanks, Durham!
