UNC Wellness Center at Northwest Cary has teamed up with Western Wake Farmers Market to launch a second location of WWFM at our Wellness Center on Sundays from 10:00am – 2:00pm beginning May 7th. The market will have about 15 vendors, representing the full complement of products you’ve seen at WWFM’s flagship Carpenter Village market, but at a location closer to the many new homes in West Cary subdivisions such as Horton’s Creek, Amberly, and Cary Park.
Market offerings may include fresh seasonal produce, flowers, herbs, baked goods, prepared foods, eggs, cheeses and meats, as well as coffee, local honey, and crafts. In addition to a wide array of local foods, the market will include a variety of events each Sunday including live chef demos, children’s activities, samples, nutrition and sustainable living education and more.
Western Wake Farmers Market, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to improve the resiliency of the local food system by increasing the participation of the community in local food consumption, and operating a robust marketplace that allows local food producers to earn a better living. The basis of their non-profit status is education of both consumers and producers.
A UNC-WWFM partnership is one that leverages the mission and capabilities of both organizations to benefit the residents of West Cary, by providing the resources and education that help people manage their diet and their health.
