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
We absolutely love winter veggies at the Durham Farmers' Market! The variety of greens can be used for salads, stir fry and sandwiches. Roasted sweet potatoes are a delicious staple in our weekly meals and can be used to make tasty pies or even muffins.
What we really enjoy during the winter is taking these veggies and making satisfying recipes that we can have in the fridge and eat during the week. This way, we know that we're eating something that is both healthy and will warm us up after a cold morning outside. These
have sweet potatoes and kale in them, both easy to find on Saturday at the market! We usually finish these off in a couple of days but they freeze well if you want to make an extra batch to have as a freezer meal for busier days.
Winter veggies also lend themselves well to preparing ahead of time and making harvest bowls throughout the week. Think roasted carrots, Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes on top of a bed of rice with a tasty dressing. The combinations are endless!
One of the best recipes we've tested this winter has been an amazing
pad thai recipe
. This meal replaces noodles with veggies and is a wonderful representation of so many tasty veggies that are grown by the fabulous farmers at the Durham Farmers' Market!
We love to talk about food and recipes at the market. Our farmers are experts on preparing everything from collard greens to bison meat chili and enjoy sharing their recipes and getting to know YOU, our loyal market customers. We look forward to meeting you and talking about food soon.
Also, please note that the parking lot on Morris Street maybe closed on Saturday morning for repairs (weather dependent). There is still plenty of parking along Foster Street so you'll be able to easily access the farmers' market. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
See you tomorrow!

Chapel Hill Creamery
Spring is coming!? The daffodils are blooming, the spring grass is growing, we've had two calves born, and Mardis Gras is next Tuesday. Even if you don't party hard for this holiday, you can enjoy cooking our Andouille, which is a fabulous sausage with lots of flavor. It is smoked but not precooked; use some of the drippings to add flavor to your recipe. To add thin slices, cook the sausage, chill, then slice and add to your dish. Make a traditional gumbo, a spicy version of dirty rice with the holy trinity of onions, celery, and green pepper, or cook the Andouille and add sautéed onion and thinly sliced collards.
We have a little Paneer to sell plus fresh Dairyland Farmers, Hot Farmers, Hickory Grove, Danziger, Calvander, and Carolina Moon. Our fresh unaged Dairyland Farmers is a staple at home for breakfast burritos and our Market Salad with grated carrots and red cabbage. Carolina Moon, our Camembert style and Danziger, our washed rind style are perfect for an appetizer. Hickory Grove is our best melting cheese with its buttery, savory flavors and semi firm texture for omelets or grilled cheese sandwiches, and Calvander is now 10 months old with depth of flavor for salads, cheese boards, or pasta.
Pork is from our pigs who are fed the whey from cheese making which we think makes the meat tender and flavorful. We'll have spare ribs, ground pork, a few smoked ham hocks, bacon, and bacon bits. Our bacon is cured with molasses instead of sugar with no added nitrates; cook it on a slightly lower flame to prevent any scorching of the molasses. Our sausages are made with the hams not just trimmings and we've chosen spice mixes we think you'll like. Choices include Mild and Hot Italian, Mild and Hot Breakfast, Sage and Maple links, Bratwurst, Polish with mustard and garlic, and our Mexican spiced Chorizo. We will also have our flavorful ground beef on special for $5.00/ pound. Enjoy cooking at home with all the market has to offer. See you there!

Caballo Rojo Coffee
My name is Gabriela Kavanaugh and I am owner and roaster for Caballo Rojo Coffee, roasting locally here in Durham. My grandfather was a leading coffee roaster in Venezuela and I wanted to continue this family tradition in my local community. My goal is to create moments involving coffee that connect the international community, that provides us with coffee, with our our local community. We are excited to be able to foster this vision by being at the Durham Farmers Market, providing you with cups of brewed coffee and bags of whole bean coffee.

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!
