Durham Farmers' Market Weekly News

Tomorrow at Market
The forecast is saying that the temperature is likely to climb above 100 degrees tomorrow.  There will be ice water and cups available at the Market Info table.  There will also be some extra chairs and fans at the table for those that need to take a rest and cool down during Market shopping. 

Also tomorrow and next week, see (and maybe talk to) some Market volunteers who are working on a Summer Customer Survey designed to learn a little bit more about shoppers and get ideas for improving the Market in the future..
