Duke Farmers Market
Shop while you work and take home fresh, local fruits and vegetables at the Duke Farmers Market. Take a break, walk to the Market, buy lunch-to-go, and purchase fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers.
Mobile Farmers Market
The Duke Mobile Farmers Market connects local farmers with the Duke community to help in meeting the demands for fresh, safe produce. Local farms in the Triangle area have continued to meet the growing demand for safe produce by selling their produce directly from their farms, or by delivering it safely to your home.
