Thank you for your interest in the Durham Farmers’ Market. We are a membership organization comprised of local farmers and craftspeople. Eligible vendors must reside and produce items to be sold within a 70 mile radius of Durham city limits, in the state of North Carolina.

New member applications are typically accepted once per year and are due on the 31st of December. 

Prior to our next application period, please read and review our Official Rules and By-Laws to see if your business fits our eligibility requirements. 

If you are a craft vendor, we encourage you to reach out to the Durham Craft Market or Cecy’s Art Market. Please note that no food trucks are admitted to the Durham Farmers’ Market.

Thanks again for your interest in becoming a vendor at the Durham Farmers’ Market!
