Each Wednesday, we check in with a local farmers market to see what’s in season at the market.
Jenna D’Amore, who is with the South Durham Farmers’ Market, shared this list of likely available produce: strawberries, fresh lettuce, cucumbers, blueberries, fingerling potatoes, sweet potatoes, kale, Swiss chard, carrots, garlic, fennel, summer squash, shiitake mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, fresh herbs, bell peppers, onions, sugar snap peas, tart cherries, green tomatoes, spinach and hopefully, peaches.
The market also will have fresh and frozen beef, pork, goat and chicken, plus vendors are starting to sell cuts, like ham and pastrami. The market will have fresh eggs, cheese and bread made with North Carolina flour.
The market is 8 a.m.-noon Saturdays, April-November; 10 a.m.-noon Saturdays, December-March. The market is 5410 N.C. 55, Durham (Greenwood Commons Shopping Center). Info: southdurhamfarmersmarket.org.
