My kids look forward to every Thursday, every week.
They get to see many of their community friends adults and kids alike, meet new friends, play outside, build toy farms, ride bikes, play tag, eat treats, draw with chalk, visit with local farmers, have good conversations. For three hours every week they get to be kids and they love it.
The Pittsboro Farmers’ Market has become a treasured part of our beautiful community where kids and adults can gather as the week ends to chill, talk, shop, and unwind. It’s friendly atmosphere has drawn folks to take part in this weekly community event.
