cucumbers, beans, watermelons, specialty melons, peppers, butterbeans, peas, okra, onions, potatoes, squash, eggplant, herbs, oriental vegetables, peaches, grapes, apples, berries, fresh eggs, cut flowers,
goat cheese, free-range meats, baked goods, jams and jellies, hanging baskets, and more.

The Fearrington Market is open Tuesdays from 4:00 pm. until early evening and the Pittsboro Market is open Thursdays from 3:30-6:30 p.m.

Come get your week's produce plus flowers for the table and support our local farmers!
