This week The Saturday Market would like to highlight one of our most loyal vendors, Double T Farms. Thomas Kumpf is the owner and operator of Double T Farms which is located in Garner, North Carollina.
Here is what he has to say about his farm.
“Double-T Farm is an organically and sustainably run farm. We use organic methods proposed by the USDA but strive to go beyond them, as many organic growers feel it is only a minimum standard. However, since most customers come out to visit the farm, their presence on the farm is the ultimate seal of approval in our view. Currently, we grow a wide range of vegetables for fresh markets, restaurants, and CSA members. We also grow fruits such as strawberries and many varieties of melons. Our goal is to teach the community that local, organic produce is a viable alternative to suburban sprawl, leading to healthier people and communities.”
They currently have 2012 Spring/Summer shares for their CSA available with full summer which is 25 weeks for $675 and half shares for $450. They also offer a custom option called Build Your Own. Members who register as BYO can choose specific items based on weekly availability vis our email newsletter. Contact Kumpf by phone at 919-239-2700 or email email@example.com.

The Saturday Market
Rebus Works gallery, located next to the Boylan Street Bridge, downtown Raleigh, began The Saturday Market at Rebus Works in April. The market continues weekly through November. The idea is to combine farmers, crafters, and food and beverage trucks in one location. Although the idea is not new, it is new to Raleigh. The Saturday Market offers a unique setting where vendors are set up along a meandering path, past the chicken coop and gardens, right in the heart of downtown Raleigh.
The Saturday Market is located at 301-2 Kinsey Street, (next to the Boylan Street Bridge) Raleigh, NC and is open every Saturday from 9-2pm and will continue through November 17.
