More than 1,300 people attended the Black Farmers Market, sponsored by Provident1898, on July 12. When the market opened at 1 p.m., more than 100 people entered around The Tower at Mutual Plaza. There were food trucks and frozen beverage stands lined down Jackson Street in addition to some 30 vendors. The market, founded by the organizers of Black August in the Park, aims to provide the community with a way to support and protect Black-owned businesses and Black farmers. The bi-monthly event takes place every second Sunday in Durham and every fourth Sunday in Raleigh through the end of November. 14
