*** Durham County’s Farmland Preservation Board initiated the Durham Roots Farmer’s Market at Northgate because preserving Durham County’s farms means providing more sales opportunities for Durham County farmers and horticulturalists. We heartily welcome everyone from small and beginning to large and established producers, as well as church, school, and community gardens.
We love socializing:
