This Week at DFM: August 7
Hello DFM Shoppers,
Happy Farmers Market Week! I think every week is farmers market week, but nationally this is the week we celebrate!
There are several ways you can help celebrate the Davidson Farmers Market this week and the hard work our wonderful vendors do every week of the year to make sure we have access to delicious, beautiful made food from our local community.
Volunteer: Join us this week or sign up for an upcoming Saturday to help setup, support, or breakdown the market. You can sign up here for one of the many shifts available every Saturday.
Donate: DFM is a registered nonprofit and rely on the generosity of our community supporters to keep DFM thriving and operating every month, year-round. Help us reach our 2021 fundraising goals by donating today!
Share: We’re a growing market and love seeing our shoppers highlight their purchases on social media. Post a picture of the items you bought or a recipe you used with the ingredients found at DFM. Share on IG and we’ll repost all weekend long!
Thank: Maybe the best thing we can do this week is thank our vendors for all their hard work and dedication!
