Festival Information:

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 weekly farmers market. The mission of the market is to bring fresh produce, meats and dairy products to the citizens of Cary and to create a place in Downtown that residents wish to be a part of. 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. We have a limited capacity for vendors. Reserve your spot now!
