December at the Cary Downtown Farmers Market

Cary, NC — The Cary Downtown Farmers Market, now in its winter season through March 2022, is open on Saturdays from 9 AM – 12 PM.

The market is a great spot to find handmade holiday gifts, locally grown produce and more on the grounds of the historic Ivey-Ellington House located at 135 W. Chatham Street in Downtown Cary.
