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
Brrrr...it's been such a chilly week! Mother Nature sure is kicking off the new year with a bang. Many of our farmers have been battling the chilly temperatures and working hard to protect their crops. As you may imagine, several farmers will not be at the market tomorrow because it's too cold to harvest any produce. However, the market will continue and we will have several vendors ready to share their delicious treats with you. Also, if you're willing to brave the weather, take a few extra minutes to participate in our community art project and share your hopes for the new year. We'll have the project set-up near the Info Table and look forward to you sharing your creativity with us.
See you tomorrow!

Become a friend of the
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!
