The Black Farmers’ Market gives the public a chance to support Black farmers in the Triangle, and to enjoy the wonderful products that they offer the community.
The next Black Farmers Market takes place Sunday, July 12th, 2020, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., at 411 W Chapel Hill Street, Durham.
This is a bi-monthly event.
Anyone who wants to support or connect with Black farmers and other Black business owners is welcome!
Historically, Black farmers have had to struggle with discriminatory land lending and a lack of access to loans, making it harder for these family farms to survive. Black Farmers’ Market is a way of working together to support each other.
The first Black Farmers’ Market of the summer, in Durham, was hugely popular. Look at this video of people waiting to get in, shared by @jdttransit on Twitter:

For July 12th, they are adding more space and more vendors, to help cut down time in line. No pets.
