FARMERS FALL FESTIVAL INFORMATION
Saturday, September 28, 2019
9am to 3pm
West Chatham Street, Downtown Cary
Hosted by: Cary Downtown Farmers Market in partnership with the Town of Cary
The festival will take place along West Chatham Street and Ivey-Ellington grounds in Downtown Cary. The event celebrates the harvest season when our farmers are bringing in their fall bounty during the first crisp days of fall. There will be live music on the main stage, a kids performance area, fun games and interactive exhibits, local food and craft beer, art & crafts and a mid-day pie-eating contest.
The Cary Downtown Farmers Market invites you to be a craft vendor at our 3rd annual Farmers Fall Festival. This is a fundraiser to support our nonprofit Farmers Market held every Saturday at the Ivey- Ellington House on West Chatham Street. The mission of the market is to bring local goods and fresh produce, meats and dairy products to the citizens of Cary and to create a stronger sense of community for Downtown Cary.
We have a limited capacity for vendors. Reserve your spot now!

Food options include local Cary bakers, coffee roasters, and 4 juried food trucks providing you with great options for breakfast or lunch.
Please bring your own water bottles to this event, and feel free to refill at our Water Bottle refill station! We will also be featuring a recycling education center near our food truck area.
The Farmers Fall Festival will have two entertainment areas. Our Main Stage will have two headliner bands providing music throughout the day at the corner of Harrison and West Chatham Street.
The Children’s Performance Area will highlight area school children’s talents from the Plaza at Fidelity Bank on the corner of Academy and West Chatham Street.
We would like to thank our awesome sponsors. Without their valuable support, this fun festival would not be possible. These locally owned Cary-based businesses are helping to support our Cary Downtown Farmers Market. If you see them at the festival be sure to say hello and thank them too!
Our Cary Downtown Farmers Market vendors will be at their regular spots during this event. Look for them around the grounds of the Ivey-Ellington House. Many will have special items just for the festival. Look for pumpkins, squashes and other fall veggies and fruits. Please plan to come out and support these local farmers who grow produce or bring meats and dairy products to the market every Saturday.
Craft vendors will be lining West Chatham where you can browse and buy many organically made and upcycled items to decorate your home or feed your family. A full list will be available as vendors are confirmed.
