Carrboro Farmers Market

Attraction details
Reviewed June 22, 2013

I've been to lots of farmers' markets, and this is by far the best. It's just the right size -- not so big you get overwhelmed, not so small you can't find what you're looking for. The farmers are not only friendly but also interested in educating the public, and most offer both samples and information. The Wednesday afternoon market is about half the size, but it's still big enough that I can always find what I need. The Saturday market is open year-round. In addition to the "usual" farmers' market items, you can often find local wines, handmade baskets (really they're works of art), woodworking, "yard art" (far too pedestrian a title for it -- sculptures etc made of everything from rebar to spark plugs). There's a hot dog cart, coffee and/or tea, freshly made lemonade, and other "immediate" refreshments. Worth the trip if you're outside the immediate area; imperative if you live anywhere close.

Stroll through the farmers market to find amazing fresh produce, meats, cheeses, flowers, crafts, baked goods, and more. Perfect for locals and tourists. I like to go every week! During the summer, the market is also open on Wednesday afternoons.

I'm so fortunate to live just 3/10 of a mile from the Carrboro Farmers' Market, and I shop there every day that they're open. The farmers are all very honest about not using the term "organic" if they are not USDA certified. Most of them just don't think the cost and paperwork is worth it. Some of them use euphemisms such as "Morganic" to describe their practices, but all of them are happy to tell you what, if anything, they put on their crops. So just ask.

I love the fact that everything comes from within 50 miles and the farmers themselves run the market.

We are lucky to have such a wonderful weekly market. We purchase our meats, produce and flowers at the Carrboro Market. Locals and visitors alike can enjoy freshly made breads and pastries, locally spun yarn and handmade crafts.
