What: The Apex Farmers Market is a vibrant and growing local producers market, owned and operated by the newly formed (2015) 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. Learn more about us...
As a local producers' market, our vendors generally farm or produce their goods within 100 miles of our market, with the exceptions being items that are not available within that radius. It is our privilege to provide our customers with fresh, local homegrown organic and conventional fruits and vegetables, pastured and sustainably farmed chicken, beef and pork, fresh farm eggs, baked goods, honey, cheeses, jams and preserves, sauces, salsas, and other artisanal food products, along with a variety of crafts. We hope you will visit us each Saturday morning during the summer season to share in the bounty, enjoy our family friendly atmosphere and join us in our commitment to Eat and Buy Local!
Where: 220 N. Salem St. Apex, NC 27502
We are located in beautiful historic downtown Apex, in the Chamber of Commerce parking lot.
When: Visit us every Saturday morning, rain or shine mid-April through mid-October 8:30-12:30 (opening day April 23, 2015).
*Please note we will be closed during the following events: Peak Fest, Peak City Pig Fest and Apex Music Fest
More Info and Helpful Hints:
Parking - Parking is available along N. Salem St. In addition, there is a large public parking lot just across the street from us, right behind the Tobacco & Mule Exchange. If you want to "get moving" and join us in our Roll or Stroll program, you might consider parking at the Hunter St. park and taking the short walk over.
Bring Your Own Bag - In order to save on paper and plastic and be more environmentally friendly, we encourage you to bring your own bag or basket to the market. Many of our vendors provide bags, as well.
Bring Cash and Small Bills - It is helpful to our vendors if you bring small denomination bills and cash. Many of our vendors also accept checks and credit cards.
SNAP/EBT Program - We accept SNAP benefits at the market. Visit the market Welcome Tent to purchase wooden coins with your SNAP card which can be used at our vendors' booths where SNAP can be used.
ATM Machine - Visit the market Welcome Tent where we can run your debit card and provide you with wooden coins that can be used like cash with any vendor.
Unsure? Just ask! - Our vendors are excited to share their farming and production practices. If you're unsure or curious, please take the time to talk to and get to know our farmers and producers! We think it's important that consumers know what is in their food so they can make the best and most healthy choices for their families.
