Starting in May this year, I set a goal to visit and blog about one of our area farmers’ market each week.
So far, so good! I’m a little more than half way through my list and thought it might be a good time to “sum up” those market visits for readers, just in case anyone missed a week or two.
So, here’s where I’ve been thus far (links will take you to earlier posts where you can find more information about each market):
Fearrington Farmers’ Market in Pittsboro’s famed Fearrington Village.
Raleigh Downtown Farmers’ Market, in Raleigh, downtown, naturally.
Western Wake Farmers’ Market in Cary (almost in Morrisville).
South Durham Farmers’ Market, one of the new markets in the area this year.
Wake Forest Farmers’ Market at their new location, with more “elbow room” for vendors & shoppers.
Saxapahaw Farmers’ Market, and music series, and foodie feasting venue, and more.
Midtown Farmers’ Market in Raleigh’s North Hills shopping area.
Holly Springs Farmers’ Market in the Holly Springs village district.
Chapel Hill Farmers’ Market in the lot of University Mall (very, very near A Southern Season).
The Saturday Market in downtown Raleigh’s Boylan Heights neighborhood.
Chatham Mills Farmers’ Market in the Chatham Mills complex, just outside downtown Pittsboro.
Southern Village Farmers’ Market in Chapel Hill’s Southern Village “urbanist” community.
That’s twelve farmers’ markets down! How many more to go? Well, enough to keep me busy for a couple months more, at least. If I’ve yet to visit a farmers’ market close to you, check this handy map for your nearest source of fresh, local NC produce. And if you’re on Pinterest, you’ll find my Triangle Area Farmers’ Market board here.
By the way, if you’re at your local market and see some blonde woman walking around, taking pictures, it might be me. Don’t be shy – say “Hi”.
