The park itself is quite small but on the weekends there is amazing fresh produce and once in a while, fun food truck fairs. even those are fairly small (think 10 minutes to walk through, 40 min if you're stopping often and eating).

Farmers market on Wednesday and Saturday is the highlight for us. A real blossoming downtown scene, but really only worth going when there's something happening.

The central park area is host to the weekly farmer's market which features local farmers and artisans. Worth a trip. Early morning best.

Located in downtown it's small but well landscaped. Many unique benches for that much needed rest after shopping.

I have been to Durham Central Park for quite a few functions. I recently decorated for a big fundraising dinner and was able to see things from a different perspective. Now even more impressed with this Durham gem.

Food trucks many Friday nights and Saturday while the Farmers Market is open. You'll usually hear music and see skate boarders.
