What's Hot at the Durham Farmers' Market

Tomorrow will undoubtedly be one of the year's hottest days at Durham Farmers' Market.  In spite of the heat, the Market will be full of sweet, juicy cantaloupes, watermelons and tomatoes.  These 3 crops always thrive during the hottest days of summer.  The variety and abundance of melons and tomatoes will last through early to mid-August. So get them while they are here and while it's hot!
