The Carrboro Farmers' Market is hosting our next FIrst Wednesday Evening Eats on May 3rd, 2017.
The Market will have a variety of food trucks, a good selection of beer, and live music each first Wednesday of every month throughout the peak season. After the resounding success of our season kickoff Evening Eats event in April, the Market hopes to continue to build community in a casual setting after Market each month.
Bring a lawn chair, your favorite games, or a blanket and hang out for good food and beer in Carrboro Town Commons.
