Sat June 30 at 9:00 AM, State Farmers Market Restaurant
1240 Farmers Market Dr, Raleigh, NC, USA (Map & Directions)
Let's have a meetup at the North Carolina State Farmers' Market in Raleigh! I'm proposing a breakfast / brunch meetup at the State Farmers' Market Restaurant, which as you can tell from their URL, prides themselves on their biscuits. Afterwards folks can check out the Farmers' Market for produce, baked goods, and plants. There's also the Nahunta Pork Outlet for those interested in pork products.

Yes, yes,yes. The farmer's market is one of my favorite places in Raleigh, and their biscuits are my favorite (they might technically be more butter than biscuit). The 16th and the 23rd are not good for me, but any other weekend day in the foreseeable future should be good. If we end up with a date towards the end of the month, my wife might even be able to come, as her schedule is changing to get her off weekends for the first time in 12 years!

Oh, and if I'm not mistaken the Farmer's Market Restaurant doesn't take reservations, and they only seat full parties, so keep that in mind as we figure out when to meet.

Love this idea. I'm shopping over at the FM most weekends anyway, so will be fine with any date we select.

My schedule opened up recently so I'll probably be there but I won't move myself from Maybe to Attending until I know the date.

16th or 17th of June seem good to me!

How does 30th of June sound? What about the time?

Would really like to meet some fellow NC MeFites. Put me down as definitely interested.

I've updated with date and time, but do speak up if the time seems too early / too late.

We're in!

It's early, but that means it won't be hot!
posted by oceanjesse at 6:36 PM on June 16, 2018

We'll do it! I haven't been to the farmers market or the restaurant yet, but have been wanting to go.

Anyone going marching after?
posted by mfu at 3:28 PM on June 23, 2018

Hi guys - really torn between joining y'all and heading to city plaza to gather for the march. I'll be there in spirit at the FM at the very least. I"m pretty fired up about this march in particular.

Sorry, could someone provide details about the march? Hadn't heard about it.
posted by tealcoffeecup at 6:40 AM on June 25, 2018

Is there interest in changing the time from 9 AM to 8 AM? The march starts at 10, this can give people time to attend both, and have a hearty meal before they go out.

Changing the time rather than the date makes more sense to me because the two weekends after the meetup are bracketing July 4 and I suspect a lot of us will be off doing vacationy things.

Info on the Families Belong Together march June 30

From the Raleigh march:
March starts at City Plaza, downtown Raleigh, located at 400 Fayetteville St. Raleigh 27601 and will end at Bicentennial Plaza, 1 E. Edenton St. where a rally will take place (directly across the street from the NC General Assembly).

Please review your RSVP's - it's the "Joining Us?" box on the right side of the screen for people on computers and the bottom of the screen for those on mobile devices.

I'll keep the time as is, as there have been no further comments on the time.

Since as Rock Steady put above, the restaurant does not take reservations and will only seat full parties, we will wait in the restaurant entry area and then we'll go in to get seated at 9:10 am.

Please memail me for my mobile number in case you need to contact me.

Got here a bit late, not sure who anyone is if if you've been seated already. Or I'm standing next to you...

It was great seeing the folks who made it for this breakfast meetup!

The biscuits were particularly good this morning, the best I've had the Farmers Market Restaurant so far.

I had the "Jim Graham Biscuit", it sounds odd in the menu description, but the combination of ingredients worked - it would not have been good at all if any of the ingredients were missing.

Man, I got the calendar switched around in my head and was sure this was happening on Sunday. I guess not! So sorry to have missed y’all. I hope you had a great time.
posted by GrammarMoses at 3:39 AM on July 1, 2018

I overslept - sorry I wasn’t able to make it out this time!
posted by oceanjesse at 6:48 AM on July 1, 2018

Yeesh, I also completely forgot about this. I'm usually good about putting meetups in my calendar, but this one missed the boat somehow. Dang it! Sorry everyone, hope you had a great time and enjoyed the market.
