The Zebulon Farm Fresh Market brings together farmers, artisans, and local businesses to the Zebulon, North Carolina Town Hall lawn on Saturdays, providing shoppers with access to local goods.  Market Saturdays often include special activities to enhance the experience for all, including two upcoming events: Agricultural Heritage Day and and a Fall Hay Day.

The market address on each date is 1003 N Arendell Avenue, Zebulon, NC. (Look for the multi-story red-and-white brick building across the street from the plaza containing Food Lion, Roses, etc.)
