The Chapel Hill/Carrboro Farmers market is a grower only market. We operate on Town property 2 out of 3 days a week when we are in season. You have to grow or make the products within 50 Miles radius. When I say "make" I am referring to such things as furniture or craft items which have to be approved by the Board. This is done on a item by item bases. We have enjoyed the support of the town which we have a lease with to run the market.
You can look at our website which is:
Also our County government has a person on staff to help promote local agriculture.
