The market is open on Saturdays year round. During the prime months of April through October, the hours are 8am-12pm. During the rest of the year, the hours are 10am-12pm.
The market newsletter comes out every Friday. Each week, the newsletter will tell you which vendors will be at the market, which products will be available, and what activities you will be able to enjoy.

Since May 2012, Eno River Farmers Market has participated in the Farmer Foodshare Program, connecting local families in food crisis with local farmers. We are partnered specifically with Central Elementary in Hillsborough, providing seven local families with fresh food and food education from Eno River vendors on a weekly basis. We expect to double this number by early summer. We rely on extraordinary volunteers and the incredible generosity of our customers who step up to the plate week after week to keep our families fed and our farmers working.
Market social hour
We have a special music and event-free hour at the beginning of every Saturday market during the prime season. 8am-9am, April-October. Grab a cup of hot coffee and a tasty baked item, and use this quiet part of the market morning to catch up with your favorite vendors and fellow early risers without the distraction of music, events, and big crowds.
with Coach Westbrook
Our Family Fitness program is led by "Coach" Westbrook and takes place every 1st market of the month throughout our regular season! This hour-long program includes stretching, jogging along the scenic Riverwalk, team sports and creative games. For those of you who aren't "in the know," Russell is a celebrity around these parts - he is the P.E. teacher at Cameron Park Elementary and founder of the Hillsborough Running Club. Lace up those running shoes and get ready for FUN!
Kids Crafts with Ms. Kat

We invite you to bring all of your landscape and garden questions to receive expert advice from the Master Gardeners. They will have all kinds of useful resources on hand for you to start composting, test your soil, figure out what is going on with your lawn, and so much more.
