The Zebulon Farm Fresh Market operates every Saturday (9:00am – 1:00pm) from early May through late August. Featuring the freshest and best-tasting locally-grown produce, farm fresh meats, jellies and jams, homemade baked goods, honey, candles, soaps, and so much more. Shop local and buy fresh!

The Town of Zebulon was awarded a grant from The John Rex Endowment to provide funding for three years to upstart a farmers market in Zebulon. In 2017, the Zebulon Town Council voted to appropriate funds to the Zebulon Farm Fresh Market in order to continue the mission started by the John Rex Endowment.

The mission of the Zebulon Farm Fresh Market (ZFFM) is to connect locally grown food and sourced products with community members, educate the community about the benefits of eating fresh and local, and to support our local grower and producer entrepreneurs. The Zebulon Farm Fresh Market provides the Town of Zebulon and surrounding areas with opportunities to purchase and learn about local foods and products while interacting with producers and each other in a welcoming atmosphere. The Zebulon Farm Fresh Market promotes regional agriculture, helping to preserve the tradition of small farms for the future. The Market strives to provide growers with effective opportunities to sell directly to customers by educating local consumers about farm products and the benefits of buying directly from local farmers. The Zebulon Farm Fresh Market supports the growth of local small businesses to improve the local economy, encourage better health through healthy eating, and build community connections. 

   

The Zebulon Farm Fresh Market strives to provide low-income families in the area access to fresh, local produce.  The Market has implemented programs to encourage access for those in need. 

  • EBT cards are accepted at the Market with a match of up to $25.
  • Zebulon Farm Fresh Market has partnered with Farmer Foodshare and the Zebulon United Methodist Church to enable customers to donate fresh, local food to the Zebulon United Methodist Food Pantry.
