About

Carrboro is home to the nationally recognized Carrboro Farmersí Market. Celebrating its 30th season in 2008, the Market serves the Carrboro community and Triangle area with 2 weekly markets. Open Saturday mornings year round, from 7 am (or 8 am depending on the season) to noon, and Wednesday afternoons, 3:30 to 6:30 pm, from late April through mid-October, the Market offers shoppers the opportunity to buy the best locally grown and hand-crafted products. We have also opened a Thursday Farmers' Market at Southern Village in Chapel Hill from 3:30 to 7 pm.

Run by the farmer members, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Farmers' Markets, Inc. oversees the operation of the market. Members farms are visited periodically to assure that all items sold are locally grown by the seller and are of the highest quality.

The Market is also unique in that it is a vendor-run market. Overseen by a board of directors who are elected by the general membership, these volunteersí help to assure that the Market remains true to its original mission of providing an outlet for farmers to market their locally produced goods, while deciding how the Market should evolve to suit the needs of the vendors as well as the community it serves. Two staff members a market manager and a special events coordinator support the board. The Wednesday Market is managed by one of the vendors.
