Farm to Table Market
The Farm to Table Market at Duke Farms is a testament to our commitment to promoting our mission to be a model of environmental stewardship and to inspire visitors to become informed stewards of the land. The market demonstrates land stewardship by practicing sustainable growing practices and providing our communities with quality, nutritious food which promotes small family farming while protecting our valuable agricultural lands. It began in 2014 by promoting our on-site incubator farmers and a few products grown by local farms in the area. Today the market features many vendors offering a variety of local produce, meats, cheeses, crafts, and wine.
The 2020 Weekly Market will start on May 2, 2021 and run between 10 noon and 2 pm. Please note that the rest of Duke Farms continues to be CLOSED on weekends while the Market is running. When the market is open, all trails and buildings are closed.
