The idea of a healthy lifestyle ties directly to the values of our Presenting Sponsor, an organization that has been dedicated to the health and well-being of not only Raleigh residents but all North Carolinians for the past 77 years. The Downtown Raleigh Alliance is proud to announce that the Raleigh Downtown Farmers Market will be made possible by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, as UNC REX Hospital We would like to thank them for their support of the market and improving the health of downtown Raleigh.
