This Week at the Durham Farmer's Market

Saturday Winter Hours: 10am-Noon
Summer hours resume April 5

The sleet is falling! We had wintery weather earlier in the week! Whew - when will it end? I know that our farmers are having a hard time with the cold, wet weather that keeps on coming.

There is good news though, spring is getting closer every day! The days are getting longer and daylight savings time starts this weekend. It won't be long before spring officially begins on March 20th. A couple weeks after that the threat of frost will be passed. Then, before we know it, spring delicacies like strawberries, asparagus and peas will all over the Market and this cold winter weather will be a distant memory! At least, that is what I'm trying to remind myself of on this cold, sleety day.

As winter turns into spring, the Market's hours will be shifting back to our spring/summer hours!

Saturday Market: Summer Hours, 8am-Noon start on April 5th!
Wednesday Market: Re-opens on Wednesday April 16th! Wednesday Hours are 3:30-6:30pm.

For now, as we get through the final throes of winter, here are some things to on-farm events and one tasty winter recipe for you to enjoy.

Celebrity Dairy will be opening their barns this weekend for you to meet their new baby goats! This Saturday and Sunday, from 12-5pm, you can visit the farm and hug a baby goat!

Next Saturday, March 15th from 11am-5pm, Stoney Mountain Farm's sheep will lose their winter coats at their annual Shearing Day! Olga and John invite people to come to the farm and watch professional shearers give the sheep their annual shear! 

See you at the Market,
