Share This!

In wake of Gov. Roy Cooper’s executive order to close all dine-in services across the state on March 17, Chapel Hill restaurants are shifting gears, offering takeout, curbside pickup, delivery, gift cards and digital farmers markets. The Orange County Board of Commissioners issued a stay-at-home order for Orange County, effective March 27 at 6pm until April 30, but it allows for restaurants to continue providing these services.

Here’s our list of updates – let us know if there are changes that need to be made by emailing editorial@chapelhillmagazine.com, and always check with these locations for the most up-to-date information.

STILL OPEN

All three Weaver Street Market locations remains open and advises keeping 6 feet between shoppers. Reduced store hours are 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Closed indoor cafe seating and outdoor seating. Temporarily closed food bars, but a wider selection of take-home meals. All alcohol purchases are now for off-premises consumption only. Customers can expect discounted wines in store since April wine events were canceled. Stay up-to-date by checking their website. 

DIGITAL FARMERS MARKET

Spearheaded by Acme, Tom Raynor (former CEO of Fleet Feet) and a growing list of community members, Carrboro United is providing nutritious local food at a one-stop shop. Peruse the offerings from a complete box of either prepared foods from local restaurants or produce/meats from local famers, and put your order in by noon on the day prior to Hub Day. Then pick up food anytime between noon and 4 p.m. from the designated location on “Hub Day.” Saturday, March 21 was the first Hub Day in downtown Carrboro with four participating vendors, Acme, Firsthand Foods, Glasshalfull and Neal’s Deli. Visit Carrboro United’s website to find out when the next Hub Day takes place. There will be three hub days a week. Fleet Feet is committing road/traffic support, as is the town police, and US Foods is committing an on-site refrigerated truck, which the health department has approved. Send all vendor requests to zoe@acmecarrboro.com.

Carrboro United sold almost 5000 meals in its first week of operation, with 100% of that revenue going directly back into Carrboro’s economy.

Jimmy Acres Farm has transitioned into a pre-order-only system for pickup at its farm stand at 413 Bowden Rd., Chapel Hill on Saturdays. The system will be ready starting the week of March 30. We will have one more day of our normal farm stand and will not be accepting any pre-orders in order to maintain our inventory for first-come, first-serve walk-up customers (we will still be accepting home delivery orders for families/individuals who are at higher risk),” the Jimmy Acres Crew told Chapel Hill Magazine in an email on March 25.  Send them an email with your requested item(s) and when you are able to come by, and they will do their best to accommodate!

Longleaf Foods is an online farmers market with a weekly ordering list via email. Pickup in Chapel Hill and delivery to the Triangle area. Longleaf has established relationships with local farms and small businesses, to bring you a carefully selected list of the best products available in our local community to feed you and your family. Sign up here to receive an email with a order form, including a curated box option and a la carte ordering oof produce, bread, cheese, dairy, fermented foods, flowers, honey, meat and more from local farms.

Support the cause by purchasing a Family Pack for your family. Meal packages are designed to feed a family of four and are designed to provide plenty of leftovers for another meal the next day. Meal packages are $60, with $10 from each meal purchased donated back to Love & Nourish 2020. All food is produced under strict WHO and CDC guidelines, and will be refrigerated on pickup at either of their two parking lot locations: NC Museum of Life and Science in Durham or The Matthews House in Cary.
