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 want to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who braved the below freezing temperatures to shop at the market last weekend. We are grateful for your support all year, especially when the weather is challenging. So how did our farmers' fare? Ask them on Saturday - they love to share their knowledge of how to protect their crops from the cold with you. I know I will savor the delicious flavors at the market this weekend and think how tough the veggies, flowers and herbs are - how did they survive multiple days of freezing temperatures?

Durham Farmers' Market!
The Durham Farmers' Market has been a community destination in downtown Durham since 1999 thanks to YOU, our loyal customers and supporters. Over the years we have grown the Market and continue to provide Durham with an event that nourishes the soul of our wonderful city.
You may not know that the Market operates primarily off of the weekly stall fees from our farmers and artisans. Despite this modest budget, we are constantly working to make fresh and healthy food accessible to our entire Durham community.
We want to continue expanding the offerings of our Market and need your help to make this happen.
The Friend of Durham Farmers' Market program provides an opportunity for you to invest in the future of the Market by making recurring or one-time contributions via PayPal or check. Examples of how we will use the funds include expanding our children's programming, continuing our outreach efforts to underserved communities in Durham, developing our nutrition education programs, and increasing staff hours. In addition to being part of a community effort to support others, a friend of the Market will receive a button to proudly display on their trusty Market tote.
We know that for some, resources are tight. If donations are not an option and you do not have time to volunteer, you can share what we do or visit us on Facebook or Instagram. If you would like to volunteer, we have several opportunities available including assisting at the Information Table, leading cooking demos, fundraising, and much more.
If you are interested in sharing your time with the Market, please e-mail us.
We invite you to invest in your Market. Please continue stimulating our local food economy and join our effort to build a stronger, healthier Durham. Thank you!

Chapel Hill Creamery
We have plenty of fresh and aged cheeses, whey fed pork, and our delicious ground beef
so enjoy the warmer weather and come to market! We'll have Dairyland Farmers, a few pieces of Paneer, Hickory Grove, Calvander, Carolina Moon, and some Pheta. All our cheese comes from our Animal Welfare Approved Jersey cows. Their rich milk adds a depth of flavor to complement the various types we make. Most are great for cooking; Quesadillas, grilled cheese sandwiches, frittata, pasta, potato gratin, salads. Try a sample and ask for suggestions.
Whey fed pork comes from the pigs raised on our farm and sausage is made with the hams, not just the trimmings of pork which adds to the flavor our customers love. A new item for us is pork loin roasts, perfect for a large gathering or to use for several meals. Sausages include Sage and Maple Breakfast links, Mild Country Breakfast, Mild Italian, Hot Italian, Bratwurst, Chorizo, and a little Smoked Andouille. Try our easy soup recipe with Hot Italian sausage and kale. We also have ground pork, bacon, ham hocks,and spare ribs.
Ground beef is also available; try it for chili or a delicious cheeseburger with our Hickory Grove cheese. Thanks to all our loyal customers who have braved the cold temperatures last week. You're the best!

Honeygirl Meadery is a small urban meadery in downtown Durham, making an ancient craft beverage for modern days. Mead is essentially wine made from honey, with many different styles that include additions of fruits, flowers and herbs. Our meads are hand-crafted libations made in small batches, using both local and global true source honey, local fruits, herbs and flowers. They are naturally gluten free. Our downtown Durham Tasting Room is open on Saturdays from 1-6pm & Sundays 1-5pm.
This week we will be sampling: our
Orange Blossom Mead
, a lightly sweet traditional mead made with orange blossom honey.
We will also be sampling the newest release of our
Honey Chai Mead, like a warm mug of chai tea, our Honey Chai Mead is a loaded infusion of exotic spices, mingled with honey. Smooth, semi-sweet, and especially comforting in chilly months.
And we will be sampling our
Blueberry Mead, made with local blueberries and NC wildflower honey. This mead has subtle plum and tart berry notes, balanced with honey sweetness. Pairs nicely with aromatic cheeses, salami, and dark chocolate. Come by for a taste!
We will also have bottles available of our
Vanilla Mead, an infusion of Madagascar & Tahitian vanilla beans in our orange blossom semi-sweet traditional mead creates creamsicle bliss; and our
Hibiscus Lemonthyme Mead, floral, earthy and herbal dry-style mead.

Hurtgen Meadows Farm
This certainly has been a week of temperature swings - from zero wind chills to almost 70 degrees and over 200 hours of below freezing temperatures. As we uncover the field crops, we are hoping they survived the weather extremes. Time will tell.
JAMS & JELLIES
One of our product lines unaffected by the cold weather are our prepared foods. Lots of delicious choices of jams and jellies are available and include Strawberry, Peach, Apple, Apple Butter, Kiwi (locally grown by our farming friends in Efland),
Onion Jam and Pepper Jam (mild, medium, and hot). We are sold out of blackberry jelly for the season.
Our award winning jams and jellies are made in small batches using local ingredients whenever possible. Our family has made jams for multiple generations and we are happy to share this with our customers.
This week we will have our sweet carrots, cabbage, sweet potatoes, winter squash, kohlrabi, beets, daikon and watermelon radishes and a very limited quantity of Brussels sprouts.
Tom has been back in the workshop producing a variety of maple/cherry cutting boards. Stop by to check out his new selections.

is a combination of eco-friendly philosophy and cutting-edge, dynamic approach to plant-based cuisine. We draw inspiration from Latin-American traditions and the availability of locally grown produce to create imaginative concepts.
We offer delicious tamales made the artisan way: with love, care and attention to detail. To ensure we respect tradition, we source wholesome ingredients before steaming them in banana leaves, creating a flavorsome and aromatic product. We pride ourselves on taste and quality, and it won't go unnoticed. Every bite you take will give you a taste of the rich Colombian heritage our tamales are built on.
We will also have soups and pasteles de yuca: delicious roasted yuca pockets filled with red lentils, brown rice and spinach. A handheld food very similar to empanadas, only gluten-free and made with wholesome ingredients!
Take home our ready to eat tamales and pasteles de de yuca or come hungry to the market because we also offer them warm to eat while you shop!
