The 10% Campaign is a project of the Center For Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS). The campaign encourages you to spend 10% of your existing food dollars to support North Carolina food producers, businesses and communities. Why 10%? In North Carolina, we spend $35 billion on food every year. If we spend 10% of our food dollars on local product, we can infuse over $3.5 billion into the local economy. As avid supporters of the Durham Farmers' Market, you already know the many advantages to shopping locally. So, why join the campaign? It will re-affirm your commitment to shopping locally and it sends a strong message to policy makers about the importance of local foods! For more information

Hurtgen Meadows Farm
Strawberry ripening is slow, but steady. We will be bringing a limited supply of our PESTICIDE-FREE strawberries.
We will have a variety of herbs and vegetable (including tomato and pepper) plants ready for your garden.
We will have radishes, chard, spring onions and spring garlic.
FROM OUR KITCHEN
Jams and Jellies! We have our award-winning strawberry jam and blackberry jelly. Also available are apple, peach and peach mango and onion jam.
All of Hurtgen Meadows produce, plants, fruits and flowers are naturally grown using sustainable practices - no synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers are ever used on our farm. We'll see you at the market!
Chapel Hill Creamery
We have ripe Carolina Moon
this Wednesday, as well as Dairyland Farmers Cheese
and Pheta. The Carolina
Moon is similar to a Brie, in
the category called "mold
ripened" cheese. The white mold changes the cheese
and enhances the flavor and softness over time. It's a
good example of SLOW
FOOD that is richer in flavor than many industrial type brie
which is made to ship across the ocean and not over ripen and get too strong. We try to bring it to you when it is half to fully ripened, and we can pick one out for you.
Our Dairyland Farmers Cheese is a fresh cheese popular with kids of all ages, including our herd manager Allison shown outside the milking parlor. It's good for snacking or melting. Our Pheta is aged in a salt brine - also a traditional method - and is saltier than the farmers cheese. It has the rich flavor of our wonderful Jersey cows' milk and is great for salads or for topping pasta or greens.
Sausage comes from our whey fed pigs and is made with the hams for a meaty taste. Choose from sage/maple breakfast; mild country breakfast; chorizo; mild or hot Italian; and bratwurst. Spare ribs and ground pork are also available. Pick up a recipe for our market salad that uses our Farmers cheese, and taste a sample of our sausage and our cheese.
