The Carrboro Farmer’s Market has given people the opportunity to buy and sell locally grown products since 1979. It is currently located next to town hall at the Carrboro Town Commons. The vendors must produce all products themselves, and all products must come from within a 50-mile radius of Carrboro.
The town of Chapel Hill also has a farmer’s market, but it is not as old as Carrboro’s. It was founded in 2008 by a nonprofit called Farmers of Orange. It is located outside of University Mall on South Estes Drive. All of the farmers live within a 60-mile radius of Chapel Hill.
