EVENTS & PARTIES IN DOWNTOWN DURHAM

Located 1 mile from the middle of downtown Durham and 9 miles from the Research Triangle Park, we’re ideally situated to provide meeting space for your next corporate event, training, meeting, or workshop.
Our venue is steeped in history from starting as a hosiery mill to becoming the Durham Farmers Market operated by women to a business hub for the small and the great! This space has been versatile through the years and even now you can add your unique flair to it. Soaring walls, gorgeous white-washed brick, enchanting wood floors, and warm lighting, all make for a space easily customizable right in the heart of Durham.
