Trolls World Tour Movie at Koka Booth

PG | Show starts 8:15 PM | Koka Booth Amphitheatre

This week’s showing of the outdoor Movies by Moonlight series at Koka Booth is geared toward Cary kiddos.

Their world is about to get a lot bigger and a whole lot louder. Presented by WakeMed. A portion of proceeds will be donated to the WakeMed Foundation to benefit WakeMed Children’s services.

The Triangle Pop-Up Market will be appearing at Phillips Farms of Cary for the first time on Saturday, May 8 from 9-3 PM for a Makers Market, Farmers Market, live music and more. It’s strawberry season, so freshly picked strawberries and other produce will be found at the farmers market.

This Saturday is the second of 4 Spring Daze Arts Markets taking place at the downtown Fidelity Bank site at 100 W. Chatham Street.

Artist tents will be separated for social distancing as guests follow the path through the various artistic displays and sale items before exiting the lot onto Academy Street. See more about the markets in this CaryCitizen story.

Cary Downtown Farmers Market

8 AM-12 PM | 135 W. Chatham Street

Head over to the market on the grounds of the historic Ivey-Ellington House in Downtown Cary to peruse the vendor tents offering all things locally made and locally grown. The traditional season returned at the start of April, meaning more vendors, longer hours and of course, much more pleasant weather mornings.

Hit it at the right time and you could take in both the Farmers Market and the Food & Flea market right across the street.
