the program and our partnership  HERE

Thank you to everyone who donated to the Double Bucks program! We couldn't do it without you!
Farmer Foodshare Donation Station 
Farmer Foodshare's Donation Station Program collects donations of fresh food and cash from customers at the 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! 

And don't forget to participate in the Donor Rewards Program. Get a sticker on your card every time you make a donation of cash or food. Once your card is full, you can redeem it for a free  item at one of Farmer Foodshare's local sponsors!














We look forward to seeing you at market today! The rest of the week our farmers will be busy preparing their animals, crops, farms, and homes for the weather we have coming in at the end of the week. 


Stop by market today to pick up easy to slice peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers. There will also be fresh bread and cheese for easy sandwiches and meat for the grill.


The market wishes you a safe and happy week!
