The Chapel Hill Farmers’ Market at University Place – 10th Anniversary Party

May 19, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm


The Chapel Hill Farmers Market at University Place is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this Saturday and everyone is invited to the party. Open 8am-noon. Come enjoy your freshest seasonal favorites and birthday activities, at University Place. 

Market Hours are 8 am-12 noon every Saturday at University Place off of Estes Drive!

The Chapel Hill Farmers’ Market was founded in 2008 by local farmers, for local farmers. We are a truly local market that supports farmers and artisans within a 60 mile radius of Chapel Hill to offer fresh, quality farm and artisanal products year round. The market is vendor run and operated so every dollar spent helps support our local economy.  We are dedicated to educating consumers about the nutritional, environmental, and economic value of buying local, sustainably-produced farm products. The Chapel Hill Farmers’ Market brings our town and our producers “to the table” to create a sense of community and establish customer-vendor relationships so you can be sure about where your food comes from, and how it’s produced.

Who’s At Market This Week:

Carrboro Coffee Roasters
Our small batch artisan roasting facility focuses skill and craft in tailoring each coffee profile. By letting the coffee dictate the roast we avoid a standard roasting style or degree. Every coffee is different and must be respected for its unique characteristics. This is done out of respect for the farmer and a responsibility to the customer.


Chocolatay Confections
At Chocolatay the only thing we take seriously is our ingredients. We use a variety of single origin and blended certified fair trade chocolate. Our raw honey is sourced from many local farms and beekeepers. Our cream, sea salt and eggs are local. Our coconut and raw cane sugar are certified organic. We also source seasonal ingredients from local farmers in Chapel Hill and Durham.
Feather Village Farm
For sale this week:  Nearly 40 varieties of plants including culinary herbs, native perennials, fruit shrubs and trees, greeting cards from KD Graphic.
