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
We need YOUR help to reach
our goal for the week of $500 raised for Sprouts Kid's Club!
Please visit our crowdfunding page
for more information, and help us get the word out by e-mailing friends and family, sharing the link on social media, and posting on your neighborhood listservs.
Also, please make a small
donation in person this Saturday when you vote for the winner of our Ugly Veggie Beauty Contest at the Market. Our farmers will enter the silliest or weirdest thing they can harvest and you get to choose the winner! Money raised from the competition will go to our Sprouts Club campaign and we hope the event will help spread awareness about just how beautiful "ugly" vegetables can be.
We'll also have a cooking demo this weekend so be sure to swing by the Market lawn from 10-11 am to learn how to make simple veggie hummus wraps using seasonal produce.

Chapel Hill Creamery
We will have Carolina Moon at a special price this week since we have a lot that is ripe and ready to serve now. This cheese is creamy like a Brie and it's an example of a Slow Food which changes over time unlike some commercial versions which are made to have a long shelf life. Made in the traditional style, it get softer and more flavorful as it ages and it shows off our rich Jersey cows' milk. Serve as a part of your meal or as an appetizer by itself or with a chutney or our recipe for Balsamic Strawberry Sauce. Enjoy it now.
We will be selling our Hickory Grove Cheese
. It is our own recipe and has a luscious semi firm texture at room temperature and is
fabulous for melting. Use it with crackers, grilled cheese, or a cheeseburger with our ground beef. Dairyland Farmers Cheese is a fresh, slightly tart cheese; try it in our Market Salad recipe or in tacos. 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 Jersey milk with a sharp edge and is great for salads, pasta, or Tabouli.
We are ready for the rain to end like everyone else. We seeded summer annuals to give us grazing for the hot summer months, and the plants are coming up. The cows have been in our compost bedded pack barn so they won't tear up the grass or slip and slide on the wet ground. I'm sure they will be excited to have new, fresh grazing soon. The clouds should clear this weekend, so get out your grill for
pork Spare Ribs,
hamburgers with our beef, or sausages.
are made from our whey fed pigs and are made with the hams for a meaty taste. Choose from Bratwurst, Mild Italian, Smoked Polish, Andouille, Sage and Maple Breakfast, and Mild Country Breakfast. We also have ground pork. Come pick up one of our recipes and taste some samples.
