You might have also noticed some fencing was put up at the park today… Farmer Jack from Sunset Ridge Buffalo Farm (pictured here), along with Durham Farmers’Market staff and DCP board members, have been working very hard today to make sure that the re-opening of the market is safe and successful. One of Durham County Health Department’s requirements for safe operation of farmers markets at this time is that the perimeter needs to be fenced off to ensure that people are following social distancing and traffic flow. The market will be open from 8am-noon on Saturdays and it will operate differently than usual to ensure vendor and customer safety. Please follow their guidelines and remember that face masks are required.
The fencing will stay up for as long as the health department requires. Even though the fencing is up at this time, Durham Central Park remains open for the community to enjoy, safely, of course.
Thank you for your understanding and a big thank you to Durham Farmers Market staff for safely providing fresh, local food to the community.
