Sneak Peek! Here are a few of this week’s delicious highlights from our vendors:




Chapel Hill Creamery:  A lot of people don’t know we are a dairy that also sells meat. The meat is one side of the business that helps keep us sustainable financially, and the meat is delicious. Beef from Jersey cows is tender and known for flavor. See what we have listed on our whiteboard when you come to the market.



New from Speckled Bird Farm:  Crocheted Dishcloths, 100%  cotton and lovingly handmade by Evelyn! Find these along with her beautiful gourd birdhouses this week at market.



Lil’ Farm: The Lil’ Farm booth was really popping last week, with colorful root veggies like watermelon radishes, hakurei turnips, purple daikon radishes, and beets, as well as kale, bell peppers, mustard greens, ginger, bok choy, collards, lettuces, and more.



Chocolatay Confections: Last week, chocolatier Danielle and crew offered up tasty “Cocoa Nuts” – candied pecans tossed in cocoa powder. Believe us, this is staff tested and approved delicious!





This Week at the DFM!
