Introducing our Little Cookbook Library!
The Carrboro Farmers’ Market introduces a community cookbook library! Shoppers looking for some new recipe ideas can now stop by this portable library each Saturday and Wednesday and borrow from a selection of cookbooks donated by Market farmers and fellow shoppers, free of charge. Shoppers are encouraged to write notes about the recipes they tried in the borrowed books and to donate any cookbooks they would like to share. Along with cookbooks the Market is also accepting gardening, agriculture, and food and farming literature.
ATM at Carrboro Town Commons
Carrboro Town Commons now has a permanent ATM. This isn't just your average ATM! When you use the ATM on Market days, half of the surcharge goes back to the Market. We will use this money to sustain our food outreach programs that increase access to fresh and local foods in our community!
The good news doesn't end there! Since the ATM is open for business 24 hours, half of the surcharge proceeds on non-market days go back to the Town of Carrboro!
Thanks to builder Francisco Plaza, Jim Spencer Architects, Bonneville Electric, and the Town of Carrboro staff for their fabulous work installing the beautiful pavilion that houses the machine. This pavilion will also be home to a fancy new recycling and trash unit in the near future!
*The machine surcharge is $3, and $1.50 of that goes back to the Town or the Market! The Machine is located just behind the Market Information Booth near the main Town Commons parking area.
