Did you know…
- The Carrboro Farmers’ Market is one of the oldest all-local farmers markets in the state and was established as a farmer-run Market in 1979?
- The Carrboro Farmers’ Market relies solely on vendor fees for its primary source funding and does not receive any city, state, or federal funding?
- The Carrboro Farmers Market is a taxable non-profit, meaning we work with our sponsors in exchange for visibility, marketing and partnership opportunities?
- The Carrboro Farmers’ Market Staff and Board of Directors are dedicated to consumer education and community involvement as a critical component of building sales for local agriculture. Vendors’ fees at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market cover the basic cost of operating the markets, but in order to keep vendors’ fees as low as possible and still fund educational outreach, the Carrboro Farmers’ Market solicits sponsors to support its programming goals, which include market events, food outreach, and more.
