Our First Food Truck!
We want the South Durham Farmers’ Market to be a place that brings together all the different players in our rich local food economy, and we are especially eager to include the area’s fine food trucks. This Saturday, we welcome our first ever food truck, Will & Pop’s. They will serving hot brunch items featuring local cheeses, meats and bread.

We hope they will be the first food truck of many, so let your favorite chef on wheels know that we are accepting applications!

Goodbye to Winter
The recent freezing rains aside, signs of spring are beginning to emerge. The daffodils are peaking through the soil, lettuce greens are returning to market, and we will have our first tomatoes of 2014 this Saturday!

All I can say is, 'Thank goodness!' It’s been a cold winter replete with snow, ice and wind – tough conditions for enticing locals to an outdoor market, but even tougher for actually growing any produce to bring to market. Our vendors persevered, and you all continued to come out even on the days that puddles took over the main thoroughfare and the wind threatened to steal our tents. Thank you all for keeping this a truly year-round market.

I happily welcome warmer days, and consider the lost hour of sleep this weekend a fair trade for the extra light in the evening. Hello tomatoes, goodbye winter!
