We have had a most wonderful season of midweek markets this year! A great turnout of local farmers and creators, the return of Sprouts Club, WIC and Senior Days, Duke field trip day to the market…we’ve had a lot of fun with you all this season. Thank you to everyone who came out to shop and join in on the fun. We’re already planning for next Wednesday Market season, which will run from mid-April to mid-October 2024, but we’re not done yet! Come on out TODAY to pick up some groceries, coffee, and pastries, and enjoy this sunny day at Durham Central Park!

Upcoming Event

Raise Our Voices Together

Join us this Saturday, 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
