This market isn’t as big as Carrboro’s Farmers’ Market, even in peak season, but the South Estes Farmers’ Market is in such a great location it makes it convenient to drop in.
Right now, not a lot is in season outside of root vegetables and some leafy greens. But the Farmers’ Market runs year round and still manages to entice people now with fresh baked goods (yum) and loads of local meats for sale, straight from the farm. Great quality meat.
Unlike the Eno River Farmers’ Market I didn’t see any specific activities for kids. And also unlike the Carrboro Farmers’ Market, no playground. But the South Estes Farmers’ Market is still a great way to explore our community and support our local agriculture (which is a great lesson for kids to learn). And of course you can head in to University Mall for some activities there; this is right in the parking lot of A Southern Season.
Be sure to check this little community gem out in high season, too! They do host occasional special events, so check out their website starting in the spring.
