Our new market will have real food (and real farmers)

A group of sustainable farmers and food advocates are starting a growers’ only farmers’ market in downtown Pittsboro NC, opening this spring at historic Chatham Mills on Hillsboro Street. I’ve been dreaming about this for years, but now it’s about to become a reality, thanks to the farmers and enthusiasts at N.C. Cooperative Extension, Chatham Mills and Chatham Marketplace.

The Chatham Mills Farmers Market will feature local farmers selling their fresh produce, meat, dairy and handcrafts on Saturday mornings 8 – 12 from mid April to mid November. They are now accepting vendor applications. I can’t wait.
