Finding fresh produce in Durham is not difficult.  In addition to the main Farmer’s Market in Durham Central Park there are several other smaller markets that draw an enthusiastic and engaged crowd of shoppers and vendors alike.

The Durham Farmers’ Market occurs every Saturday at the Pavilion at Durham Central Park at 501 Foster St. This market is an all-local and producer-only market open every Saturday through the winter and Wednesdays from 3:30 to 6:30 pm during the spring and summer. More than 70 vendors offer locally grown fruits and vegetables, meats, eggs, cut flowers, potted plants, artisanal cheeses and breads, baked goods, honey, preserves, local wines, hand-made soaps, pottery, jewelry and more.

The South Durham Farmers’ Market is Durham’s newest Farmers’ Market and has been operating since 2012. Hosted weekly on Saturdays from 8 am to noon in Greenwood Commons at 5410 NC 55, the South Durham Farmers’ Market features more than 30 farmers and artisan food producers based within 50 miles of South Durham.
