Going back in time at American Tobacco

At its height, The American Tobacco Company was the largest cigarette producer in the world. After it closed up shop in Durham in 1987, the campus of historic buildings sat empty for many years before being brought back to life as one of the largest historic preservation projects in North Carolina’s history. The end result is a home-run of adaptive reuse architecture.

A local market that sustains

As many of us celebrate Easter and Passover this week, the South Durham Farmers’ Market (SDFM) is preparing for another celebration, Earth Day. We are happy to observe this holiday, which closely aligns with one of our goals as an organization: to support sustainable agriculture and a healthy local environment. To that end, we select our vendors and operate our market in such a way as to make it easier for our shoppers to go green.
