Celebrate Independence Day With Durham Farmers' Market

With Independence Day upon us, Durham Farmers' Market urges the community to celebrate with foods from small, independent family farms and business. In order to be successful, local, independent farmers are dependent on those of us who have chosen to eat local and fresh food.  So, in a sense, we are interdependent on one another.  Our local food system in North Carolina is strong for two reasons: first, there are wonderful, hardworking farmers and second, there is a strong, supportive community of eaters who buy local products. One could not exist without the other.

And please, remember to vote in the America's Favorite Farmers' Market Contest. Show your Durham love and appreciation for independent farmers by voting HERE.
