The Market Experience
It’s Fun, Free and The Place to Be! Durham Central Park and its Saturday markets are one of the most popular places to see when visiting Durham. The Durham Craft Market is an outdoor arts and crafts market in its 12th year on Saturday mornings in Central Park. Stroll through the market booths and chat with local artists.
The surrounding markets, music, food trucks, demonstrations and special events all in the same block make this a destination for you and the family to enjoy every Saturday! In the same Central Park location, you may also visit the Durham Farmer’s Market, The Art Market at Vega Metals and the one of a kind Mt. Merrill children’s playground. Get to personally know your local artists, farmers and food truck vendors and find out how they make their craft and grow your food. By visiting the market you are supporting individual small business owners from our community!
Talking in person to artists and experiencing the Durham Central Park vibe with your friends and family can lead to some inspiring stories! We want to hear about YOUR day visiting the Durham Craft Market. Share YOUR STORY with us, so we can share it on our website and social media platforms and encourage others to seek their own DCM story, and make the Durham Craft Market a better experience for everyone.
