Thanks for Another Great Season at Durham Farmers' Market!

Before the Durham Farmers' Market clicks over to abbreviated winter hours, all of the markets' vendors would like to extend a huge 'Thank You!' the wonderful and devoted customers that made the 2011 Spring/Summer season a success.  The vendors always appreciate that no matter what the weather might be - from scorchingly hot to cold and rainy to down right scary - customers still come out to the Market and shop from them.  Thanks for supporting local farms and helping to make farming and home based businesses a viable profession.

Next Saturday, November 19 will be the Durham Farmers' Market's Customer Appreciation Day.  Ten lucky customers will receive a $10 gift certificate to use with any vendor at the Market.  Come to the Market Info table next Saturday to enter your name in the drawing!

Saturday November 19th marks the last day of the Market's Summer Hours (8am-Noon).  That doesn't mean the Market will be shutting down for the winter.  The Market will be open all winter long with fresh veggies, meats, eggs, cheeses, baked goods and more.  In preparation for Thanksgiving, the Market will be open on Tuesday Nov. 22 from 2-5pm.  The Market will be closed on November 26th.  Then on Saturday December 3rd, the Market will change to our Winter Hours - 10am to Noon and will be open every single Saturday this winter (including Dec. 24 & Dec. 31).

Upcoming Events
Great Collard Cook Off - November 12th, 10am  Chef Shane and Sous Chef Kyle Wilkerson from Four Square Restaurant both swear that they have the best recipe for cooking collards.  So, they will be facing off and having a collard cook off at the market. Love collards or hate 'em, this showdown will be a blast. And you can vote for your favorite collard cooker! You'll also have a chance to take home a collard recipe.
