Fearrington Farmers’ Market

Last week I wrote about the Chatham Mills Farmers’ Market and mentioned a little about North Carolina’s agricultural history.  During this time of year, our state is plentiful with farmers’ markets and produce stands right on the side of the road.  There is nothing quite like having fresh food and not to mention, supporting North Carolina farmers.

Fearrington Farmers’ Market

The Fearrington Farmers’ Market is a “producer-only” market that started in 1991 that connects local producers directly with community members. It encourages sustainable farming practices, fair prices for high quality products and supporting the local economy.

The market takes place every Tuesday from 4pm to around 6pm. Try to bring small bills, $20 or lower and if you have your own reusable bags, this is a great opportunity to continue thinking about the environment and use them! The market is located at E Camden, Fearrington Village, NC 27312.

Farmer Foodshare Program

While looking into the information on the farmers’s market, I learned about a program that I had never heard of but that sounds like an amazing program. Farmer Foodshare was created by farmers and shoppers from the Carrboro Farmers’ Market in 2009. It delivers fresh produce and baked goods to people in need in our community – at no cost to the people. There are many ways to get involved from donating money and food to volunteering time or becoming a partner with the organization. Interested in learning more about this awesome program?
