Bounty at the Brickyard

One of the area’s newer farmers markets was designed by and for students and IMG_0612faculty at N.C. State University, but it’s a great resource for nearby residents, too. The Campus Farmers Market operates each Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Brickyard at the D.H. Hill Library. The market opened on April 22. The fall session of the market runs Sept. 2 through Nov. 18. Plans are for the market to operate year-round in the future.

All items sold are locally produced. The varying offerings usually include produce, meats, eggs, dairy products and soaps. Of special interest to me is the weekly bounty of North Carolina seafood from Southport Seafood, which also sells at other area farmers markets. I do love me some good Carolina shrimp.

Since the market was organized by the young folks, you can find it on Facebook and Twitter. You can sign up at the Facebook page for weekly updates about what’s available at the market. The only thing that would be better for me would be if they sold parking spaces at the market, but I’ll make the prowl.

    So, where do you park? To get to the brickyard, I used to park on Hillsborough, but not sure that is an option now. Suggestions?
