While the Mebane Recreation and Parks Department, with assistance from Destination Downtown Mebane and the Mebane Enterprise staff, has helped coordinate and assist with the Farmer’s Market over the years, the Downtown Mebane Farmers Market will be managed starting this spring by Authentically Alamance Farmers’ Markets and Health Alamance. 

While residents can expect the same fresh produce, pies, confectionaries, soaps, cake and pie mixes, candles, and other goods, there will be considerable changes for vendors this year. 

According to Authentically Alamance’s vendor application website, vendors can notify the market manager of produce that they would like to sell outside of the April-November window, with the potential of a pop-up market with enough interest. We currently accept SNAP and offer the Double Bucks SNAP dollar matching program. Vendors have the option of becoming a Member, a Guest, or creating a Team. Unlike past years, there will be fees associated with setting up a stand at the Farmer’s Market starting this spring and summer.
