Carrboro Market Report

Carrboro, North Carolina is as cool as it is charming.  A small town (less than five square miles) that’s litterally right around the corner from Chapel Hill.  Carrboro is known for its walkability, art galleries, interesting eateries, world-class Farmers Market and Weaver Street Market, a fantastic co-op grocery store/coffee shop, eateray & gathering place.  

With a population of just under 20,000, Carrboro is the kind of town where you can still find an old-fashioned meat counter, a fish vendor who brings in fresh catches from the North Carolina coast, and shops devoted to used books and vinyl records.

Carrboro residents love the village ambience, yet the town’s proximity to Chapel Hill and, a few miles further, Durham, creates a more metropolitan mindset than you’ll find in most small Southern towns.

As for real estate, there are some fascinating one-of-a kind properties in Carrboro.  How about a 100-year-old mill house to call your own.

The Carrboro Merchants Association launched an excellent web site highlighting all that Carrboro has to offer, including awonderful map of the town and information about local restaurants and stores as well as upcoming events. This is an excellent resource for local information.
