Quick Links
In 2017... finish that sentence in your contribution to our community art project tomorrow at the Market. Now that we have January mostly under our belts and have gained a little perspective on the year ahead, we want our Durham Farmers' Market community to come together in art to share intentions and wishes for the year. We want to know what hopes and predictions you have for yourself, your family, your community, and the world at large.  We will provide the materials, all you need to bring is a little creativity! 

In January 2018 we will display the project at the Market so we can revisit what was written and see if we accomplished our goals and our forecasts came true. Join the fun on the lawn anytime during Market hours on Saturday. We cannot wait to see what you create!

See you tomorrow!

Rest in Peace, David McKnight 
Beloved musician David McKnight passed away on Tuesday, January 17, 2017. David brought so much joy to our Market community and visitors knew that no Market was complete without a conversation with David. We encourage you to take a moment and read the beautiful tribute published in The Indy. Please join us in remembering David at the Market as we send our love and support to his family and friends.

February 11-12,  with a reprise exactly  one month later  on  March 11-12 . Dress for the weather to come out to play with baby goats and likely watch some being born. We'll see you at the Market this weekend!

Brit & Fleming Pfann

We are excited to offer a table full of color in the dead of winter! We will have some gorgeous flowers this Saturday, including icelandic poppies and anemones. Both make wonderful gifts and will brighten your week. We will also have turnips, spinach, lettuce heads, chard, and carrots. And to all the women and men who went and marched, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart! What a show of solidarity. Looking forward to seeing you Saturday!

1 Pound of Coffee Bought =
1 Tree Planted

Finally! We're back at Durham Farmer's Market! It's been too long and oh - how we've missed you! Please come out and replenish your supply of sustainable coffee!

The weather should feel more like January and we'll have the best drinks available to warm your bones, including Peppermint Lattes and Mochas! We'll of course have other hot coffee drinks available and our freshly roasted beans. Perfect for a cold winter morning! 

We are a custom coffee roaster located in downtown Durham. Our goal is to help our customers offset their carbon footprint through their coffee purchases by planting a tree for each pound of coffee we sell. We limit waste from seed to cup by sourcing naturally washed beans, using solar electricity, and composting all materials. We are striving to be a zero-waste coffee roasting company and our coffee beans are certified Fair Trade, Organic, and Rainforest Friendly.  Can't wait to see you there! 

Emily & David
Chapel Hill Creamery
One day is spring and one day is winter. Either way our sausages are a good item to have on hand for a quick meal. We will have bacon, smoked ham hocks and some spare ribs. The sausages include Mild Country Breakfast, Sage and Maple Breakfast, Bratwurst, Mild Italian, Hot Italian, Chorizo, and Polish. Polish is my new favorite for dinner. It is similar to Bratwurst with mustard and garlic added for an extra punch. Serve with greens, sautéed cabbage or a sub sandwich. Try a sample of the Polish at our booth.  See you at the Market!

Honeygirl Meadery
Honeygirl Meadery celebrates nature and the work of honeybees by making meads (honey wines) with seasonal fruits, flowers, herbs and honey. Made in Durham NC, Honeygirl meads are hand-crafted libations made in small batches with all natural ingredients. Come visit our downtown Durham production meadery for a full tasting with souvenir glass - we are open every Saturday from 1-6 pm, no reservations required. 

We will be at Market this week with a variety of our meads for sale. Each week we sample a few of the meads at the farmers' market so that you can try the whole line-up over time.

This week we will sample our Hibiscus Lemonthyme Mead, an earthy and floral dry mead made from NC wildflower honey, hibiscus petals, and fresh lemonthyme; 
Vanilla Mead, a lightly sweet mead made  with FL orange blossom honey and infused with Madagascar and Tahitian vanilla beans; and Spiced  Apple Cyser, a semi-sweet mead that tastes like apple pie, made with NC wildflower honey and NC  fresh-pressed apple cider. We will also have our Ginger, Lavender, and Fig Orange for sale.

Honeygirl Meadery Gift Cards are available year-round at the Market. Now you don't have to guess which mead to give - your giftee can choose their favorite with a gift card!

Terra Clotha
There's a lot you can put in a bag. Our hand-dyed cotton bags can hold a weekend's worth of groceries. And they can hold other things: Tennis balls. Art supplies. That screenplay you've been working on in your spare time. Cats (but don't let them out). Magic swords. The Complete Works of Fergus McGee (Profusely Annotated for the Modern Reader). Crisp stacks of non-sequential twenty-dollar bills. Various kinds of modestly sized electronic equipment. And when you're finished, these bags fold up into their own little pocket. And then you can put the bag into your pocket.

Hand-dyed bags from Terra Clotha. Colorful. Versatile.
