Farm Photo: North Hills Farmers’ Market in Raleigh

May 31, 2008

The new North Hills Farmers’ Market opened in May 2008 in the – you guessed it – North Hills development off of Six Forks Rd. in Raleigh.

This market is an example of the new wave of “sponsored” markets that are starting to pop up around the Triangle. North Hills is sponsored by North Hills developer Kane Realty Corporation.

The market is open on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. from April through early October. This is a “producer only” market and features locally grown items.

For more information, visit the North Hills Farmers’ Market website.

The vendors set up in the Commons area around Starbucks and Ben & Jerry’s. The U-shaped road is closed to vehicle traffic during the market. Kane Realty supplies the vendor canopies.
