About the Market

Our Mission:
The Carrboro Farmers' Market aims to create and sustain a vibrant and innovative market that supports our local farmers and artisans, while extending the benefits of local food to the greater community. To honor the rich heritage of the Market, we seek to work with our: 

  • Members: to provide the best venue and support to nurture and maintain healthy sustainable farms and artisan-based businesses
  • Customers: to provide access to the highest quality fresh local food in an environment that fosters the relationship between farmer, artisans, and customers
  • Community: to expand the reach of the Market and create a strong local food ethic for our community.

The Carrboro Farmers' Market celebrates its 38th year in 2016. The Market is comprised of over 70 Market members who sell their locally produced goods each week directly to Market shoppers. Located in the Carrboro Town Commons on 301 W. Main St, vendors sell a wide selection of the highest quality locally grown produce, pasture raised meats, eggs, cheeses, breads, pastries, woodwork, metalwork, pottery, woven rugs, baskets, and much more. 

All of the goods sold were produced within 50 miles of the Market, and the farmers and artisans themselves run the Market. In fact, the actual owner of each business or farm is present at Market each week.  It is truly as local as it gets. The market is nationally recognized and home to many of the the most talented growers and artisans in the region. 

We are open Saturdays year-round and Wednesday seasonally. For market hours click HERE

The Market accepts cash, and many vendors also accept credit card for larger purchases. We also have an ATM on-site for your convenience. Partial proceeds from the ATM surcharge benefit the Market's food outreach programs! 

We also accept EBT! SNAP/EBT shoppers can swipe their card at the Market welcome booth to purchase "Market Bucks" that can be used on eligible goods with Market vendors. We match SNAP/EBT purchases up to $10! Matching made possible by healthy food incentive funds from UNC Health Care and Carolina Farm Credit.
