You Spoke. We Listened.
Last October, we conducted a community survey where 200 market shoppers shared their ideas for how we can improve the SDFM market experience for everyone. Since that time we have used the survey data to help guide us in planning for the upcoming market season – including determining the correct product and vendor mix, conducting operational improvements, and scheduling educational programs and cooking demonstrations. So, we thought we could spend a few minutes summarizing the more popular ideas from the survey and updating you on how we are responding.

Farmer Foodshare
Ever wonder how Farmer Foodshare at The South Durham Farmers' Market works? Katy Phillips, the Donation Station Coordinator for FF recently chimed in with some awesome statistics from our very first year...

Spring Vegetables!
Be on the lookout for Baby Spring Leeks, Aurugla, Asian Collards (Senposai), Baby Kale and more. Take on some of these delicious ideas...

Our first ever Spring Harvest Fundraiser Dinner will be at Pop's Backdoor  on Sunday, April 14th at 6pm! Menu sourced from our producers and farmers that you see each week. Buy tickets NOW and find more information here! You can also save $3 in processing fees and buy your ticket at market on Saturdays (just find Ben, market manager with a red beard).
