This Week at the Durham Farmers' Market

This week, the Market Manager is on vacation and I'm taking a little vacation from writing. Instead, I'm leaving you with this lovely fall scene I captured at Market last week. Check out the availability list below and what the vendors have sent in for you.

Tomorrow is the 5th Annual Farmer Foodshare Challenge! This year, 13 NC Farmers' Markets that work with Farmer Foodshare to help hunger relief in their areas are participating in the challenge. This year, Farmer Foodshare is asking people to buy 5 lbs of food or give $10. Five pounds of food gives immediate assistance to a local agency. Ten dollars builds a cash reserve so that the Durham Farmers' Market can provide food assistance all winter long. Every dollar raised goes 100% to buy local food for urgent hunger.

See you at the Market,
