STRAWBERRIES, DONATION STATIONS AND MORE!
The Grand Openings last week and this weekend went great!
Over 100lbs of food raised! Shoppers supported farmers and people at risk of hunger through cash donations that our volunteers used to buy food, or by shoppers buying a little extra and then donating it!
The Southern Village Farmers Market Grand Opening in Chapel Hill, NC took place on Thursday, May 3rd from 3:30p until 6:30p on the green at Southern Village.
We’ll be there every Thursday - same time and same place, so come on out and say hello!
And on Saturday, May 5th, from 8a until noon, the Eno River Farmers’ Market hosted its first ever Donation Station in downtown Hillsborough. Friends of the DSS came to market and picked up, after they also picked up food from the Hillsborough Farmers Market Donation Station. Now ALL the farmers markets in Hillsborough are working together to support farmers and feed the hungry in Orange County.
YOU CAN HELP! All markets are looking for volunteers to help staff the donation stations.
Volunteering is easy and fun for ALL ages!
