This Week at the South Durham Farmers' Market

This Week at the South Durham Farmers Market

  • Market open Saturday 8 am - Noon Rain or Shine at Greenwood Commons 5410 hwy 55
  • Music by Scott Boggs at 8:30 am - 11:30 am
  • Radishes Strawberries, onions, chard, broccoli, greens, tomatoes, and more!

We're Hiring!
Ben, our intrepid Market Manager who has represented SDFM for the past year, will be tending the Market for the last time this weekend.  We are sad to see him depart, but he has accepted a full-time position with the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association, so we also can't help but be incredibly excited for him as well.  Please stop by the Manager's tent this weekend and wish him all the best in his new endeavor.

We have also begun searching for someone to take over the part-time Market Manager position.  The ideal candidate would be highly organized, customer service-oriented, and loves working with a diverse group of people.  If you or someone you know is interested, please visit the website for additional information and application instructions.

Picnic Season is Here!
We have a new Pinterest Board up to celebrate all of our favorite ideas for places and recipes that will help you get outdoors and enjoying the best and freshest foods our farmers have to offer.

SDFM Vendor Featured in Local Commercial
At this point, we still become giddy whenever we find our vendors and our market in the local newspapers, so imagine our excitement when a film crew showed up a couple weekends ago to feature Stephanie Hall and Sassafras Fork Farm in a commercial promoting local farmers' markets!  This commercial, sponsored by the All In 4 Health Project, aims to increase awareness of healthy eating and the promotion of farmers' markets throughout the central North Carolina region.

According to All In 4 Health's website, eating locals foods builds community by promoting genetic diversity in our food systems; building vibrant communities; preserving open spaces, supporting a healthy ecosystem, and creating an investment in our future by ensuring that farmers will be part of our community for generations to come.  We couldn't agree more.

The commercial will begin airing on local TV stations starting on Monday, June 3rd...or you can watch it now.
