The Chapel Hill Farmers’ Market, in collaboration with the Downtown Partnership and the Town of Chapel Hill Parks & Recreation is delighted to announce its 2016 Downtown Pop Up Farmers’ Market. Beginning August 25 and running through October 27, the Downtown Pop Up Market will once again be set up on the plaza at the intersection of Church Street and Franklin Street (140 W. Franklin Plaza). The market will be open on Thursdays from 3:30-5:30 pm.
The Downtown Pop Up Farmers’ Market will feature many favorite vendors from the Chapel Hill Farmers’ Market’s Tuesday and Saturday markets held at University Place. T5 Farms will be back along with Loaf Bakery, Mystery Brewing, Chappell’s Peaches and Apples, and Carrboro Coffee Roasters. Joining them will be Fickle Creek Farm, Prodigal Farm and Pomegranate Kitchen. Carolina Farmhouse Dairy and Lo & Behold will be rounding out the line-up. Adding to the festivities each week will be craft vendors, musicians and maybe a food truck or two.
You can expect to find farm products such as heirloom tomatoes, okra, peppers, squash, sweet potatoes, apples and fresh herbs as well as locally and sustainably raised pork, chicken, beef and eggs. Artisanal products will include baked goods, savory pastries and stews, breads, beer, cheeses, yogurt, kefir and coffee, as well as natural body care products, all produced within 60 miles of Chapel Hill.
