SUPPORT YOUR FARMERS!
AT THE MARKET
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
Summer is in full swing at the market! Check out these beautiful pictures and swing by to fill your shopping basket with every color of the rainbow. See you tomorrow at Durham Central Park!

Honeygirl Meadery is a small urban meadery in downtown Durham, making an ancient craft beverage for modern days.
Made in the heart of Durham, North Carolina, Honeygirl meads (honey wines) are hand-crafted libations made in small batches with all-natural ingredients.
Our mission is to celebrate nature and the work of honeybees by making meads with seasonal fruits, flowers, herbs and honey.
Owner Diane Currier started Honeygirl in 2014 and has continued to grow their line up over the past several years. A modern meadmaker, Diane continually experiments with different flavors and techniques in making her meads. All of our meads are naturally gluten free. We use both local and global true source honey to fully access the terroir of the
honeybee and to experience all the places the bees have visited
. Many of our meads contain local fruits, herbs and flowers from Durham and its surrounding areas to further accentuate our "drink the field" philosophy and bring the garden to your glass.
Visit our downtown Durham Tasting Room just one mile away from the market - open on Thursdays from 4-8 pm, Fridays from 4-8 pm, Saturdays from 12-8 pm and Sundays 12-5 pm. We hold tours of our facility on Saturdays at 2 and 3 pm.

Botanist & Barrel
Botanist & Barrel crafts a variety of ciders, sours, and dry fruit wines. Using techniques from wine-making, brewing, and mixology they are constantly blurring the lines. They are Orange County's first winery and cidery, situated just north of Hillsborough, on Cedar Grove Blueberry Farm. They are also farmers raising dry farmed, no-spray, organic blueberries, for the best estate grown fruit on earth.
Founded in 2017 by brother and sister team and Orange County natives, Lyndon and Kether Smith focus on light-handed winemaking using old world methods with modern sensibilities. They lean towards whole fruit fermentation and make natural beverages with no additives or forced carbonation. They ferment to zero residual sugar and the ABV ranges from 7% to 15.5%. The ciders and wines are raw, wild, unfined, unfiltered, unpasteurized and you will find both still and sparkling ciders. They age in everything from tequila barrels, to sea salt bourbon barrels, to rum, to sauternes, to tawny port to bourbon maple syrup barrels.
Botanist & Barrel is hyper-local, sourcing ingredients whenever possible from within 200 miles of our farmhouse winery.
We will bring tomatoes, squash, zucchini, potatoes, okra, cucumbers, peppers, dill, spearmint, basil, dried herbs and cayenne peppers, angus beef and soup.

The Spicy Hermit
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: napa cabbage (from Meadow Lane Farm, with radish from Four Leaf Farm) and green cabbage (from ECO, carrots and radish from Four Leaf Farm)
Please Note: The Spicy Hermit will be on an unexpected August break due to unfortunate product damage caused by a faulty fridge. This will be our last Saturday market - we hope to be back tentatively after Labor Day. Please follow us on social media for up-to-date information and announcements. Thank you for your patronage and understanding, and have a great summer!

Who doesn't love dinosaurs? The crowds at the newly reopened Dinosaur Hall at the Smithsonian's Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, indicates that a lot of people do. Although they've been gone more than 60 million years, a lot of us would like to see one peek around that building over there, if only for a minute. Preferably a stegosaurus, but we're really not
trying to be picky. We have thought hard about the dinosaur conundrum recently, and finally decided there was something we could do to help bring dinosaurs back, at least on clothing. So we went into our Mad Scientist Clothing Lab (ask about our lab coats) and came up with a line of batik dino T-shirts for children. They are colorful and funky. Fun to wear. And try not to put the T-rex in the same drawer as the triceratops.

Chapel Hill Creamery
Great summer produce at the market plus local tomatoes! Now is the time to enjoy the different varieties of tomatoes and pair them with our Fresh Mozzarella and our unaged Dairyland Farmers cheese. All our cheeses are made with the golden milk from our beautiful Jersey cows and you can really see that color in these fresh, unaged cheeses right now. The color is from the carotene in the grass the cows graze.
Our Fresh Mozzarella is the perfect for a Caprese Salad, or use it in eggplant dishes, pizza, or melted over toast with some sautéed mushrooms or peppers. Dairyland Farmers is a moist, tangy cheese that adds flavor to tomato sandwiches, salads, or tacos with our Chorizo sausage.
Other cheeses include savory Hickory Grove, 7 month aged Calvander, our washed rind Danziger, and Carolina Moon. Use the Hickory Grove for a great cheeseburger and grate the Calvander for pesto or a pizza. We have a recipe for Pesto at our booth. Danziger and Carolina Moon are delicious for an easy appetizer with crackers or a crusty bread.
Lots of sausages to choose from this week. Choices of sausage include Mild and Hot Italian, Mexican Chorizo, Smoked Andouille, Polish with garlic and mustard, Bratwurst, Sage and Maple Breakfast Links, Mild and Hot Breakfast in loose pack. Our pork comes from pigs we raise on the farm who drink the nutritious whey from cheese making. Pick your favorite to grill or to add to a gumbo. We also have ground pork.
Thanks for supporting the farmers working to bring you good food during this hot summer and don't forget your cooler!

Make your market an experience with an ice cold natural beverage from Homebucha! We offer multiple flavors of our locally fermented probiotic tea, and will also be serving iced matcha on these warm summer Saturdays. Matcha is a specially processed green tea, grown in the shade to encourage the plant to produce extra antioxidants and caffeine. One cup of matcha has the nutritional content of 10 cups of regular green tea! The leaves are then dried and stone ground to produce a vibrant green powder that we mix into a refreshing icy drink. Stop by to cool out with a kombucha or matcha!
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!
