Unfortunatley, every year, the Wednesday Market season comes to an end. Today will mark the end of the longest and best Wednesday Market season in the 6 years that it has been open! In 2013, the Wednesday Market was open for more weeks, had more vendors, saw more customers, and had the best diversity of products than we have ever had before! Thank you to each and every one of you who has made the Wednesday Market part of your weekly routine and made it a great success!
There will be one more mid-week Market before the year ends! The Market will be open on Tuesday, November 26 from 2-5pm for our annual Pre-Thanksgiving Market! Lots of vendors will be there that day with supplies for your Thanksgiving Meals, holiday gifts and yummy treats. So, mark your calendars!
Even though the Wednesday Market season is ending, the Saturday Market will continue to be open year round. You'll see some of your Wednesday vendors at the Saturday Market all year, other vendors will return to the Saturday Market when we switch to Winter Hours on December 7th, and a few of your Wednesday Market vendors will return to Market when we re-open in the spring of 2014. The opening date of the Wednesday Market will be determined over the Winter and we will announce it in early 2014.
TODAY AT MARKET...
On this cool, grey fall day, you'll find lots of comforting fall foods... sweet potatoes, winter squash, and greens. You'll also find a good selection of meats and plenty of eggs. Unfortunately, there won't be any cheese at the Market today. There will also be a good supply of fresh cut flowers, aromatics, and herbals - turmeric, galangal, and roselle - which is a type of hibiscus and great for teas!
Thanks for you ongoing and wonderful support of the Durham Farmers' Market! Our vendors strive to bring you the best of what can be grown and produced in the Piedmont of North Carolina. But, every week, we know that the Market would be nothing without such a wonderful crowd of customers and supporters!
See you at the market!
