This summer we invite you to walk or bike to the market as part of our Roll or Stroll campaign! We're partnering with Advocates for Health in Action (AHA) and two other farmers' markets in Cary to promote active transportation to the market.
The Roll or Stroll flier pinpoints the market's location and surrounding neighborhoods, the greenways and sidewalks connecting to the market, and how long it takes to walk or bike to the market from different nearby areas. Kids need 6o minutes of physical activity a day, and adults need 30 minutes a day. Walking or biking to the market is not only fun, but gets you closer to the daily recommended amount of physical activity!
If you walk or bike to the market, stop by our market information tent for a chance to enter our drawing for a free WWFM tote bag...it's our way of rewarding you for being active!
About Roll or Stroll
AHA produced the Roll or Stroll fliers in partnership with the Town of Cary, which mapped the greenways and sidewalks around each of the three markets. The initiative is the outcome of AHA collaborative partners in Western Wake County working to increase access to healthy foods and physical activity through policy, systems and environmental change.
AHA fosters and supports community efforts to make healthy eating and physical activity the way of life in Wake County through policy, systems and environmental change. For more information, visit AHA online at www.advocatesforhealthinaction.org, follow AHA on Twitter @WakeAHA or on Facebook.

Many of you know that the current site of Western Wake Farmers’ Market, Carpenter Village on Morrisville-Carpenter Road, will one day be developed (WE ARE NOT IMMINENTLY THREATENED!). Two years ago we proactively began a search for a “Forever Home”. We’ve vetted a number of potential sites in those two years, and in September we started discussions in earnest to relocate market to a permanent site in Morrisville.
Next week the Morrisville Town Council will consider an important step in the process of creating the ultimate, awesome site we all imagine. They will decide whether or not to permit staff to apply for a grant from the Rex Foundation. The grant is multi-faceted, but a key element of the plan is to relocate the WWFM tent market as a first step in the process of getting to the permanent structure. At the end of the day, if awarded, receiving the grant represents a commitment. A commitment to start down the path toward building the vision.
The WWFM board thinks that a permanent farmers market structure in Morrisville is a benefit for all of the current customers of the market, and for the Town of Morrisville. If you are a Morrisville resident and agree that a permanent farmers’ market site and structure is a good investment for the Town to make, we would appreciate you letting the Council know that you support that investment.
You can reach the entire Council with one email to the following address: email@example.com
We appreciate you taking the time to express your support. It’s important that you do so before the next council meeting on Tuesday, April 8th.
