Roberson Creek Farm is back this week & will have a selection of fall produce and gifts like arugula, fall corn decorations, turnip salad, okra, and of course their famous heirloom pie pumpkins!

The Spicy Hermit is also back with a delicious menu: Napa cabbage, green cabbage, green garlic, radish, collard greens (limited stock), turnip, sweet onion, kohlrabi carrot, and butternut squash.

Botanist & Barrel is highlighting a new batch of Forbidden Root, releasing this weekend. Whole Blackberry, baby ginger and turmeric spice up this perfect fall cider that’s both earthy and bright. It’s a must try.

Lil’ Farm (pictured above) has a gorgeous and plentiful table of fall and late summer produce, including basil, peppers, eggplant, radishes, turnips, cilantro bok choy, ginger, kale, and more. Stop by for their beautiful tables & pick up something super fresh this weekend!

MoonDance Soups and Sundries is getting us excited for spooky season with Ghoulish Goodies Bath Bombs that are perfect for bath time fun! Fun, fizzy color embeds are contained inside, so watch for the colorful explosion once they hit the water. 

Chapel Hill Creamery is throwing the spotlight on their pastured raised meats this week! Perfectly paired with the cozy fall weather, their seasonal selections include beef roasts and steaks, ham hocks and ground pork, as well as four varieties of sausage. Their Polish Sausage is a perfect companion for winter squash, greens, or sauerkraut, and the Smoked Andouille is great in a gumbo!

Raise Our Voices Together

Community Circle Sing

Join us next week, October 21st from 10:00-11:00am for a Community Circle Sing on the lawn at Durham Central Park!

Let’s Resonate the Sound of Togetherness

Humans have gathered in song for thousands of years: to celebrate, to memorialize, to grieve and to connect. Everyone was a part of the musical landscape, in our ancestry. Everyone contributed and was a valuable addition, regardless of what we now call “talent” or “pleasingness” of sound. There is no exclusivity to singing and using your voice in community here. This is a free, open-hearted, improvisational, supportive, safe opportunity to come together, raise our voices, dissolve barriers and have a unique experience. Facilitated by Karen Novy, Durham Vocal Guide and Teaching Artist

Free & open to the public,

All voices welcome

No experience required
