We welcome you to the Fearrington Farmers’ Market located at Fearrington Village off 15/501 halfway between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro. Our market has over 35 vendors who sell only what they have produced. This includes vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, flowers, canned goods and baked goods — a wonderful array of foods and flavors — grown or made for healthy, happy living. We are open this year from 4-6 pm every Tuesday from April 7 through November 25.
The Fearrington Farmers’ Market began in 1991 when a group of Fearrington Village residents together with Jenny and R B. Fitch contacted local farmers through the Seeds of Hope Project. The Fitch family envisioned the Fearrington Village Center as a place for farmers and consumers to meet — offering an attractive outlet for farmers and a source for fresh, high quality, locally-grown produce, plants, meats, baked goods, and home-canned goods for consumers.
As a “producer-only” market (meaning that the products are grown or baked or tended or preserved by the farms who bring them to market), the Fearrington Farmers’ Market benefits everyone involved. It supports small local growers, ranchers, and bakers by providing a direct outlet for their products. It encourages sustainable farming practices which preserves and enhances the quality of the soil. It helps the local economy. And it brings high quality products to consumers at a reasonable price.
Along with that is the fun of “going to market.” Every Tuesday, from 4 pm to about 6 pm, the market is open to the public (people who live in Fearrington Village as well as anyone in the surrounding towns). Not all vendors are there every week, but some vendors are there every week from April 1st to the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. So, rain or shine, you’ll find a variety of produce and products that will make your trip worthwhile. You also might chat with the farmers or see old friends or meet new ones! It’s a welcoming, inclusive, friendly atmosphere that encourages healthy, happy lifestyles and living.
