Traditional Season Returns to DT Cary Farmers Market

Cary, NC — At last, the traditional season of the Cary Downtown Farmers Market is here — meaning more vendors, longer hours and of course, much more pleasant weather mornings.

Throughout the traditional season, spanning April through October, the manager of the market, Leah Smith says the new market season will also be cycling in new, part-time and guest vendors. This will help to support even more local businesses that offer all things locally made and locally grown, within 100 miles of Downtown Cary.

“We believe we are a market that is set apart and hosts the most quality vendors our beautiful town has to offer,” said Smith.

The best way to keep up with week-to-week updates is through the Cary Downtown Farmers Market Facebook page.
