Pick-up fresh produce, meat, baked goods & more for your Thanksgiving feast on Tuesday from 3-5 pm!

We’re lucky to live in a region where we don’t have to stray too far from the traditional Thanksgiving dishes in order to use local, seasonal produce. Let’s talk about what our vendors are selling that could make an appearance on your holiday meal plates.

Considering North Carolina is the top producer of sweet potatoes in the United States, it makes sense to start with these delicious veggies. You can make both sweet potato casserole and mashed potatoes from your next market purchases. It’s easy to get excited about these rich, buttery dishes but don’t forget to eat your greens, which may be the hardest decision because there are so many kinds to choose from. Tomorrow you will come across bok choy, mustard greens, collard greens, kale, chard, spinach, and a variety of lettuces. Cook chard down with garlic or compete for the most vibrant salad on the block. Although it’s not a usual suspect, cabbage tastes great with any dressing and provides extra crunch, too. If you really want to cook outside of the box, cabbage stuffed with rice or meat will surely impress your family. While most of us will opt for a turkey, there is no shortage of sausage and other pasture-raised meats at the market. Last but not least, there is plenty of squash, pumpkin and other members of the gourd family. A classic pumpkin soup will pair well with anything on the table, otherwise toss any squash into the oven for an easy side dish. See how seasonal you can be this year and let us know how it goes!

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow for our special market.
And don’t forget we are closed on Saturday, November 24 and will re-open with our winter hours on Saturday, December 1 from 10 am-noon.

From all of us at the Durham Farmers’ Market, we are incredibly grateful for YOU and we wish you and your family a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
