I've moved away from Raleigh, but when I lived in town, I tried to come every weekend. Whenever I come back into town, I make sure to visit. Spring, Summer, and fall are the best times to visit with plenty to offer. Even though its cold in January and February, there are still many vendors out there. I have never... More

Hands down the best farmer's market I have ever visited. We never miss it when passing through Raleigh. There are year round booths & seasonal. Holiday time we go just to smell & see all the trees! Lot's of variety of items for sale, but all food or agricultural in nature, or at least 99.9% of it is. We love... More

We stopped by the Farmer's Market on our way to our motel near RDU to pass some time. Glad we did. A lot to see there, especially at the import shop. If you need anything unusual for outdoor decor, this is the place to shop.

If you're looking for something to do on a weekend day where you want to kill 1-2 hours, I'd highly recommend the State Farmer's Market. With many places to explore on the grounds, you'll find vendors that sell things from corn, sweet potatoes, and many other NC grown foods that are in season. The permanent stand building that houses the... More

Friends who live nearby brought me here...what fun and a fantastic way to bring in fall! A huge collection of plants, food and it's here every day. Parking was plentiful, grounds were clean and everything was beautifully displayed. Produce, plants, pies, jellies, seafood, crafts--it's all here. Prices were reasonable and, despite it being Sunday morning, the crowds were pleasant and... More

Wow @ the huge pumpkins this year. Let's see, what did I love? Well, from the wide array of harvest there was a bit of everything. First, you must try the fresh seafood restaurant on site! Really enjoyed those oysters and scallops. As for the market, I enjoyed the huge pumpkins, fresh herbs you can plant yourself-I purchased a few:oregeno,lemon... More

As a total plant nerd, this place is my go-to for Saturdays in the summer. Thankfully, they are mostly open in the winter, too. That said, the place is absolutely teeming during growing season. If you like to people watch, go on a Saturday at 10 or 11. If you are all business, go during the week in the morning.... More

My wife and I enjoy taking trips to the Farmer's Market. There is always something interesting to see and tastey to buy. We have always enjoyed the trips to shop there.
