The NEW Apex Farmers Market is a vibrant and growing local producers market, owned and operated by the newly formed Apex Farmers Market and Local Food Alliance, a not-for-profit dedicated to being a resource to the Town of Apex and surrounding communities by providing educational outreach regarding the health and economic benefits of consuming locally grown food and supporting locally produced products, while providing farmers and local producers opportunities to directly market their goods and services. We seek to create a diverse farmers market for our customers, including produce, meats, fresh farm eggs, farm products, baked goods, seafood, artisan food products and craft vendors, with opportunities to provide education and entertainment for our customers.
Some things haven't changed...for example, we kept the name Apex Farmers Market and for this year, we kept the place, at the Chamber of Commerce in downtown Apex. But, we'll have a later start date (April 18th) and an earlier start on Saturday mornings (8:30 am). We'll also continue into October and cap the year off with a Fall Harvest Festival on October 17th. You'll still see some familiar faces each Saturday, but you will also see many MANY new faces, along with exciting new monthly family events like our Blueberry Festival planned for June and new programs, such as the Market Member program. Keep an eye on our blog, website and facebook for all the updates, and sign up for the newsletter on our homepage to keep up with all the news, vendors and weekly specials for our Market Members.
Apex community, this is OUR market. Please plan to come out and support us and to support local farmers and producers each Saturday morning during the season! Mark your calendars now for our Opening Day Festivities on April 18th!
