SDFM Needs You!
Only one month left before we begin our third season at the South Durham Farmers' Market! That means it is time to gather up the General Membership and, among other things, to elect new members to the market’s Board of Directors. If you are a part of the market’s Community Membership, we invite you to attend the annual General Membership meeting on Wednesday, March 12th at the Durham County Extension Office from 6:30pm to 9:00pm. The meeting is catered, so if you plan to attend, please RSVP by emailing the market manager. There are vacant Community Member seats on the Board, and we are accepting nominations at this time. Self-nominations are entirely welcome.

Samedi Gras at Market
This Saturday, we are bringing a little of the Durham Carnival to market! The Bulltown Strutters are going to be parading through and around the market from 10am to 11am. The music might get a little loud, but the costumes promise to be even louder. We definitely encourage our young shoppers to come out in their dress-up clothes and join the party!

We are also happy to be serving free samples of King Cake from La Farm Bakery. It’s a French-style King Cake made from brioche with a cinnamon filling and iced with the traditional green and purple Mardis Gras colors. Of course, in each cake there is a trinket, and the lucky shopper who gets the baby figurine in their slice wins a free t-shirt. And, we will have a very talented face painter, Amy Burns, ready to help our little shoppers get gussied up for the festivities.

If you are planning any Fat Tuesday parties of your own, don’t forget to stock up on Andouille and chorizo for your jambalaya!
