A huge number of vendors in a small Palace including: fresh flowers, pottery, fresh Mexican food, local meats, local cheese, fresh fruits, freah vegetables and even baked goods. Every time is slightly different. You are also right next door to glass jug for some great beers as well as to an indoor food court if you want to grab lunch when the market closes at noon or to simply grab a cold beverage on the way home.

The market itself has a dense selection of vendors given its small size. Left with some locally roasted coffee, honey, and breakfast pastries.

Durham Farmers' Market at Central Park on Foster Street is a great destination for fresh, locally-grown produce, meats, and plants. We come early to beat the crowds and have some fresh pastries and coffee!

The Durham Farmers Market has been a regular stop on Saturday for our family for years. Covid put a pause on this for a period of time but post-vaccine we have been back for the past few weeks. Yay vaccine! Some of our favorite vendors are the Haw River Mushroom crew (Wow! Such awesome shrooms!) and some of the raw meat vendors. Lyon Farms and Celibrity Farms are also favorites.

It's been months since I've been and I forgot how much I missed it! Caballo Rojo has THEE BEST coffee, decaf or regular caffeinated. And Sarah Rowe's pottery stopped us in our tracks...and of course there's plenty of local produce and meat!

A good sized Farmer's Market with about 30-40 vendors including crafts, food trucks, and produce. There is a good crowd and they have the flow of traffic going one way as a COVID mitigation technique. People wear their masks here and abide by the rules. It's right next to a park so it's just super welcoming to head there and sit on a bench while eating some freshly purchased food. Since it's in the heart of Downtown Durham you could also visit some local places or wander about afterwards and check out some cool mural art.

Always a delight and customers and vendors are great about masks and distance. Plus you are outside! Thanks to volunteers who are gate keepers.

A lovely, quaint farmers market with a surprising amount of variety in its dozen or more stalls. You can get produce, meats, flowers, local crafts, soaps, and more. However, it’s popular and things can sell out quickly, so go early if you want the full selection.

Very enjoyable outdoor activity. Not a ton if people do we were able to properly socially distance. Always a plus. Vendors utilized recommended guidelines to ensure safe as it can be shopping experience.

It was my first time going to a farmer's market since covid19, and my first time visiting this area too! It did not disappoint! You walk in one way, and exit the other side. People wearing masks, and not too crowded. I'm happy I stopped by!

Amazing selection of produce and craft items! Highly recommend checking out this street market. Bring a mask and cash - many stalls were doing cash only.

Would have given five stars except I went there based on info that was posted on their webpage which turned out was old and incorrect. However I found the vendors polite and knowledgeable and a good selection of products. I recommend checking everything out first to find the items with the best quality and price.

Fun market wih a good combo of farmers' stands, crafts, hot food, and artisan food products. It was buzzy and crowded in early May. Loved getting this look at real life in Durham. Worth visiting for sure! Among the more unusual products: flavored mead, buffalo, homemade ginger syrup, empanadas, carved fruit bowls.

We had a great time. I would suggest bringing your own water if you are doing a big haul as it can get hot walking around! There is plenty of yummy picks

Best Farmer's Market in the area! IMO it has a much better vibe than Raleigh by far. Good food, produce, and products.

This is really a great farmer's market so I would give it 4.5 stars. There are some great local farmers and added value food vendors at this market including bakeries, cheese makers, kombucha, and they have seafood. Absolutely top notch produce, meat (including lamb and bison). But there are some cons that lose them that half a star which includes a lot of socializing by customers in the middle of the market, allowing strollers that are obstacles in this very busy market, and at least one farm that doesn't sell strictly local produce (asparagus in August?!). Parking is not difficult as there are 2 large lots on 2 sides of the market.

I go here every Saturday. Great selection of fresh produce, art, and bread products. I love cabajerrlo coffee! Good selection of food trucks as well. Walking distance from everything in downtown Durham. Makes for a great Saturday of shopping and friends! Will continue to go back!

This market is very large which is great - tons of produce vendors and there are also the craft markets and food trucks which offer a lot of great options and fun shopping. The space at Durham Central Park is good to have (there are bathrooms on site and much of the produce market is under the overhang which is great to beat the heat). Vendors are awesome

Most vendors are very nice. I brought a lot of empty egg crates to recycle for the egg vendors. The first lady I asked if she'd like some, said she only took the paper ones. There were plenty of other egg vendors who were happy to get them. There is always a large selection of produce, flowers and homemade goods. Plenty of free parking. Lots of food trucks with a good selection for all taste buds.

Best market in the Triangle. Small, affordable, a great place to take the family to enjoy the food trucks and the playground. Local makers and great breakfast options round this out to a great Saturday morning.

This is one of the most exciting farmer's markets I have been to. The one in Raleigh definitely has more stuff. But this one has more life. There are a variety of performers and space to just hang out with family. I love it here.

We love Saturday mornings here. The art stalls are always worth visiting to chat with local artists. Even if you're not looking for anything specific there are plenty of yummy local foods to tempt you. Make sure to come during strawberry season in the spring, and tomato time in July.
