This Week at DFM: November 21

by | Nov 19, 2020 | Davidson Farmers Market, Local, News, Nonprofits

Come on out to the Farmers Market this week. (DFM won’t be held the Saturday after Thanksgiving.)


Hello DFM Shoppers,

Happy Thanksgiving (almost)! This Saturday, 11/21, is the last full season market day. DFM will take a brief break to celebrate Thanksgiving and rest then return Saturday, 12/5, for DFM’s Holiday Markets.


Last Market for the season: 11/21

Holiday Markets: 12/5, 12/12, 12/19

Winter Market starts: 1/9/21

This Saturday, you will find everything you need to make a delicious holiday feast no matter if its for one or two or a larger (but still small) gathering with immediate family. This year’s Thanksgiving is unusual, that’s for sure, but there are still many things we have to be thankful for. My hope for you this holiday is that you have a peaceful and restful Thanksgiving with a moment of calm.

For those shoppers who are new to DFM, this Saturday is not our last –– DFM is a year-round market. Our farmers and purveyors operate every season of the year, growing in open fields and greenhouses and creating delicious seasonal product. Don’t be fooled by those who say farming is a warm weather trade or that eating fresh local foods in the winter is boring. We can debunk that myth at DFM!

When we return in December for our three Holiday Markets you will start to see new produce and products arriving at the market. Then come January when the 2021 Winter Market starts you will be surprised at what our vendors have to offer!

As we come close to ending the 2020 Market season, I can’t help but to be thankful for every single one of you. Our shoppers, donors, volunteers, vendors, Board of Directors, and Courtney who have come together during a challenging year and still put together the Davidson Farmers Market. It wasn’t easy, but the outcome was rewarding and humbling. Our community is strong and I am grateful and proud of what we accomplished this season!

Thank you!

Happy eating,
