DURHAM — I took a small jaunt this 7 days more than to Durham to check out out Marigold Market.
The small, lovable market place is found on on Durham-Dayton Highway and is owned by Kelly Schill. She opened the market place Aug. 1 and so much is savoring a steady stream of consumers. You simply cannot skip the market as it has a dazzling yellow entrance door.
When I was there Wednesday, I was pleased to see Schill experienced a bunch of consumers coming in. I believe she has tapped into what Durham seriously desires.
Schill sells contemporary fruit, greens, flowers, bread, milk, meats, wine, sweet treats, canine biscuits and more. She even sells candles and jewelry. Somehow she’s able to in good shape every little thing into her very small place! Almost all the things is manufactured in Chico, Durham or bordering parts. I bought a modest candle from her created by P&P Candle Co. It smells divine.
Schill had a thriving grand opening Friday, providing new music, wine tastings and foods. I attended and was delighted to see her shop stocked to the gills with shoppers. Individuals outdoors have been taking pleasure in the a little bit cooler weather and celebrating the grand opening with totally free burgers, wine and ice cream, and examining out what the persons at the tents were being advertising. I acquired a bag of pasta for Donald (my partner) from her shop. I’m very certain I’m going to be a recurrent flier at the market.
“There’s a void in Durham to find clean foodstuff,” Schill reported. “There are so many proficient inventive farmers here. It is insane people today did not have a area to go.”
Schill is happy to be symbolizing the location.
“I created all regional organization in a retail location,” she said. “It’s the 3rd 7 days, and it’s been absolutely nothing but remarkable right here.”

Almost everything is area to Butte County. Some goods appear from Southern California. Schill receives flowers Monday and Thursday.
Schill has been cooking up her idea for the market for two many years.
“It took awhile to get figured out. I’m just blown away by the community aid,” Schill explained.
