Dog Policy

We love our furry friends ... Our Farmers' Market is crowded with customers and products and we want our two-legged and four-legged visitors to have a safe, clean and enjoyable experience. For the safety and comfort of all our friends, we ask that you please leave your pets at home. Pet owners need to be understanding that not everyone is an animal lover or is comfortable around animals. We understand people feel strongly about their pets, love them and think of them as part of the family. While others may be extremely terrified of them. There are some that are concerned about sanitation and having dogs close to the food they are purchasing. An energetic dog can be a little scary to some young and older folks who may be unsteady on their feet. So we ask that you leave your furry family members are home or walk them in an area away from the market. Thank you so much for your understanding.

You'll recognize the Market tent because you'll see our Market banners, signs, volunteers, t-shirts, handouts and more. It's like our information station. Friendly, smiling faces will greet you. We work on a token system, so for example, you may purchase $25 in tokens, which we will charge to your card. In return, we will give you 25 - $1 tokens that you may use at all of the food (SNAP eligible) vendor tents. You don't get change back with your tokens, but most vendors will round down to the nearest dollar. The Davidson Farmers Market is happy to offer Market Double Bucks for EBT shoppers. We will match your EBT purchase dollar for dollar up to $20 per market day so be sure to ask about this benefit! You don't have to use all of your tokens on the same day your purchase them. You may save them and come back another Saturday. You may buy more tokens if you need more! Multiple transactions may be made in one day. We are here to help you.

Tips & FAQ’s

Listed below are a few Davidson Farmers' Market tips to ensure you have the best experience possible. Parking is available on Main Street, Town Hall Lot, Police Department Lot, and at Davidson Presbyterian Church lot at the corner of Depot & Jackson Streets. Sturdy shopping bags or baskets are recommended to carry your Market goods. Be sure your hands can be free so that you can shop efficiently. All vendors take cash of course, but more and more vendors are beginning to accept major credit cards. Bring a variety of bills so that vendors may easily provide change. The busiest Market time is between 8:30-10:30 a.m. Get there early if you are looking for something in particular. Eggs sell out quickly! Ask questions! Vendors love to interact with Market shoppers and answer questions like: how is this grown? How do you prepare this? Have you ever thought of growing...? Our Market is outdoors, so please be mindful of Mother Nature and dress appropriately throughout the year. Public restrooms are located in the Town Hall building. Don’t get dehydrated! During warmer months, locate the two water coolers throughout the Market and help yourself to an ice cold drink. We are here to help!
