About Us / Carrboro/Southern Village Farmers' Market History: Touted as one of the finest local markets in the country, the Carrboro Farmers' Market has provided an opportunity for local farmers to sell their products directly to the consumer since 1979. The Market grew steadily from 1978 to 1989. Starting with barely 20 vendors in 1978, the number had increased to 50 by the mid ‘80’s, and 90 vendors were selling, over the course of a market year by 1989. This also marked the year that the lease on the Carr Mill Mall space expired. The Market needed a new home, and the town did not want the Market to leave Carrboro.
