Durham Farmers' Market. 
The money is used directly at the market to purchase food from farmers; that food is then donated those who are hungry in our community. Farmer Foodshare's mission is to connect our local farmers with those who need food! Please  visit  or  volunteer  at our Durham Farmers' Market Donation Station!

participate in the 
Donor Rewards Program.

Once your card is full, you can redeem it for a  free  item at one of Farmer Foodshare's local sponsors!













Fall officially begins September 23. The change in the season can be seen at market as the produce changes. Tasty squash and greens are a sure sign that Fall has arrived. The veggies that grow during the Fall are full of amazing nutrients that help protect our bodies from the colds that circulate as the weather cools. 

Even though Fall is right around the corner, Summer can still be felt, seen, and tasted at the market. Make sure to pick up your last favorite Summer veggies and get ready to roast some butternut squash!

See you this afternoon!

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!
Spicy Hermit
We will be at market on Wednesday and Saturday! Also, butternut squash kimchi will be here soon! The Spicy Hermit crafts traditional and seasonal kimchi using fresh produce from local farms (including those at Durham Farmers Market!) and time-honored fermentation methods. What is kimchi? Simply put, kimchi is a delicious product resulting from seemingly magical alchemy of vegetables and spices. All kimchi from The Spicy Hermit is raw, gluten-free, and vegan, and manufactured at each produce's seasonal peak. 

Current menu: green cabbage, sweet onion (fermentation time permitting), butternut squash (fermentation time permitting)
