Farmers Fall Festival!


We are planning and starting to advertise our Farmers Fall Festival for October 21.  It will be an all day event (8:00 to 4:00) with our normal vendors and many guest vendors.  There will be lots of local music, educational information, pumpkins, arts and craft vendors along with permanent market members selling their wares, kids activities, food trucks, beer vendors.  So mark your calendars and tell your neighbors!  We will have more information soon.


Well the news about our new location is that we are apparently going to stay put for next year.  Looks like the development at our location will not begin until 2019.  So we will be at the same location for one more year.  We are still being considered for the Downtown Park upon completion of Phase 2.  When that will be completed is anybody's guess but I feel that it will be about 3 years, but we may know more on that later this month.  So after next year, we will have to relocate to a temporary location for 2-3 years but it will be downtown!  So it is still important to let the following council members know about your feelings about us being in the Park, that seems to be the best place for our permanent home.  While I think this will happen, YOU, our customers still need to be heard!

To our customers

The Cary Downtown Farmers Market tries to be an important part of downtown Cary.  We provide locally grown and locally made products to our customers.  We provide a friendly atmosphere to meet your community.  The current location of the Market is temporary and we would like to get input from our customers about, not only where we should be located, but how we can continue to improve the Market.  So if you have an opinion about where the Market should be located, let me know (rick.savage_mgr@caryfarmersmarket.com or just tell me at the Market) and more importantly, let your town council representative know!  It is important that they hear from you.
