This Week at DFM: July 2

by | Jun 30, 2022

DFM Shoppers,

July 4th weekend is here! It’s time to prepare for that delicious backyard picnic we all associate with this fun summertime holiday.  The Davidson Farmers Market has bundles of food to help:  locally grown and sourced meats and seafood for your grill, fresh picked fruits and vegetables for salads and delicious hand crafted cheeses for snacking.  If time is tight, don’t forget the DFM prepared food vendors!  They have your sweets and savories covered; pies to pastas, popcorn to chocolate, donuts to pumpkin seeds!  One trip to the DFM this Saturday and you will have your backyard picnic covered! 

Happy Birthday America!

eat fresh, eat local!

Vendor Spotlight

Make sure to stop by Blue Goat Diary and try some of their super fresh and delicious cheese.  All of their goats are treated with only homeopathic remedies and herbs to keep them healthy. The goats are fed with all-natural local hay that is not treated with sprays or other harmful chemicals. You can taste the love owners Rebecca and John have for their goats in every bite!

Lots to do at the DFM!
