Our business is market and eater driven, we only grow and sell what our customers tell us they want. To that end our production is focused on having a bountiful display at the nationally famous Carrboro Farmers’ Market.
Since 1986 we have been selling at the Saturday morning Carrboro Market. Open year round, and we are there essentially every Saturday.
We are also at the Wednesday afternoon market, 3:30-6:30, from April until sometime in September.
The market is set up like a baseball diamond with two open air shelters on first and third base lines. On Saturdays look for us at the end of the shelter at third base. On Wednesdays look for us at the end of the shelter on the first base line (closest to Town Hall) at home plate and next to the gazebo. Here is a map for parking at market.
In addition to the Carrboro Farmers’ Market you can find our produce and flowers at Weaver Street Market in Carrboro, just a few blocks from the farmers’ market, and at their Southern Village location.
Since Weaver Street Market opened it’s doors in 1988 we have supplied them, in season, with cut flowers and a variety of vegetables including all of their spring lettuce since 1992.
We do not run a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program for a number of reasons that you can read about here but:
Sales to fine restaurants are the final piece of the puzzle.
Starting with Magnolia Grill, the first James Beard award winning restaurant in North Carolina (They have two, one each for Ben and Karen). Closed in 2012, we were proud to have supplied and to have worked with the Barkers since 1984, they have helped shape Peregrine Farm and the local food scene.
You can find our produce on the menus and flowers in the dining rooms of the fine restaurants below. They all shop at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market and support local farms, we have worked with all of these chefs for many years.
