October at the Cary Downtown Farmers Market

Cary, NC — The Cary Downtown Farmers Market will be finishing out its traditional market season these next few Saturdays of October. The good news is—the market doesn’t stop there!

The CDFM will enter its winter season from November to March with new hours and a limited selection of vendors and product offerings.

The market will be held every Saturday this month from 8 AM – 12 PM on the grounds of the historic Ivey-Ellington House located at 135 W. Chatham Street in Downtown Cary.

Some new finds around the market this month will include some freshly harvested autumn produce like pumpkins, muscadines and beets.
