This Week at the South Durham Farmers' Market

This Week at the Market

  • Open Saturday 9am- Noon at Greenwood Commons, 5410 Hwy 55 Durham, NC 27713
  • In Season: Kale Sweet Potatoes, Cabbage, carrots, herbs and more!

New SDFM Shirts for Kids!
We are very excited to announce the newest addition to our stylish line of farmers’ market wear: kids' tees and onesies! Printed locally by TS Designs, these adorable shirts are made from 100% organic cotton.

We worked with Cory Baumberger of Slick Turtle Designs to create these special vegetable superheroes – Cy-Pepper, the Incredible Broccoli and Wonder Carrot – to inspire our youngest market-goers.  All shirts and onesies will be on sale at the SDFM tent for $20 and available in the following sizes:

Onesie Sizes: 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months & 18-24 months
T-Shirt Sizes: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 & 12

Call for SDFM Community Cooking Club
At the farmers’ market, we mostly offer raw foods like vegetables, fruits, meats, herbs and eggs. All of these foods require some amount of work at home to make ready for eating, whether it be just washing and dressing or making a more complex savory soufflĂ©.

So, of course, alongside the quality, fresh ingredients sold at market, we are also implicitly promoting home-cooking, an activity I ardently endorse. Cooking is fun, creative work that’s good for our well-being and helps us make family time. (In this short video, Michael Pollan extols the health benefits of simply making your own meals.)

To encourage cooking and involve our community, we are starting the SDFM Community Cooking Club! No professional experience is required, just a desire to share favorite recipes and cook with the seasons. Our first meeting will be in February. In addition to other activities, the club will be responsible for conducting a cooking demonstration the second Saturday of each month featuring in-season market fruits and vegetables. Derek Treuer, community member and trained chef, will be chairing the club. If you are interested, please email
