This Week at DFM: December 5

by | Dec 3, 2020 | Davidson Farmers Market, News, Nonprofits

Bundle up and head on out to the Davidson Farmers Market.


Hello DFM Shoppers,

Happy December! I absolutely love the holidays, and Courtney and I are excited to bring holiday cheer to the market the next three Saturdays. On Saturday, 12/12, will be our ugly holiday sweater market –– more details on that later, but we’re extremely excited!

This week we have two fun announcements and ways to help support DFM and spread holiday cheer at the same time. Though Christmas in Davidson is slightly different this year, we’re thrilled to see the Giving Tree Village continue. Coordinated by Rotary Club of Davidson, the event is a unique and festive fundraising village highlighting non-profits & local businesses in the community. DFM participates every year, and last year was our biggest year of funds received from our generous supporters.

You can support DFM’s tree by voting with tickets, this year sold in $5 increments. Every dollar is a vote and DFM receives 100% of the funds. You can vote for DFM’s tree here, and learn more about the Giving Tree Village and view the other trees. Voting is between Dec. 1 – Dec. 12.

Another fun way to support DFM is by purchasing a DFM holiday ornament. This year, local artist Kristen Feighery, hand painted an ornament that captures the spirit of DFM since 2008. The ornament is printed on canvas with a wooden frame. We are opening pre-orders for the ornaments this week and will be available for pick-up only on Saturday 12/12 & 12/19. The ornaments will also be available for purchase at market 12/12 & 12/19 while supplies last –– limited quantity of 40 ornaments this year. For more details and to see the ornament, please see below in the newsletter.

As always, thank you for supporting DFM and our vendors! I look forward to seeing everyone this holiday season.

Happy eating,
