second-saturdaySecond Saturday is an open celebration of food and community along the Raleigh Food Corridor every second Saturday of the month April-November. Through pop-up markets, city walks, urban farms, community gardens, food installations, local artisans and local businesses, Second Saturday is an all-day showcase of new and exciting food-related projects occurring along the Corridor. 

*November marks our last Second Saturday of the 2014 season. We are slowing things down, enjoying the chill in the air, the changing colors and focusing our energy towards planning next season. We’ll see you next April! *

Most stops on the tour are works in progress, so be sure to stay tuned for next growing season. Maybe you’ll even be inspired to begin planning your own garden project for next year.
