Hi, I’m Anna Marie. I’m a wife, mother, Irish dancer, and pug mom living in North Carolina. I also love to travel. Come along for the ride! If you see something you like, don’t be afraid to say, ‘Pull over and let me out.’
The NC Farmers’ Market Restaurant is the place to go for a hearty southern breakfast in Raleigh. The Market, as it’s fondly referred to by regulars, is located at the North Carolina Farmers’ Market on property that was once the NCDA dairy farm near Dorothea Dix Hospital. Seven days a week this popular Raleigh restaurant serves large portions of southern favorites made with fresh Got To Be NC  ingredients. Visitors to North Carolina’s capital city will want to add this dining destination to their itinerary.

Southern Charm


The NC Farmers’ Market Restaurant holds true to its farming roots. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by tractors, farm equipment, and pigs in all shapes and forms. (They say there are more pigs than people in NC, but I’m not sure if that’s true.)

Inside, beautiful murals of farm scenes draw the eyes upward. The spacious seating area and counter buzz with conversation as the aroma of bacon and coffee fill the air. The staff, outfitted in bib overalls, is cheerful, friendly, and happy to serve you. The casual style and easygoing atmosphere make dining at the NC Farmers’ Market Restaurant enjoyable. It’s a welcoming environment certain to put a smile on your face regardless of the hour of the morning!

NC Farmers’ Market Restaurant Serves Home-Cooked Meals

If the homey ambiance doesn’t win you over, the home-cooked meal will. Breakfast is the specialty at the NC Farmers’ Market Restaurant and they’re renowned for southern flavors and generous portions. Oh yeah, and the biscuits!

Eggs, bacon, grits, pancakes, sausage, omelets, home-fries, country ham… Are you getting hungry? There are lots of good down-home favorites on the menu as well as plenty of piping hot coffee. At the risk of sounding cliché – come hungry.

My personal favorite is the biscuits. They’re immense. Choose from an assortment of fillings – bacon, country ham, eggs, and pork tenderloin are a few of the choices. They’re a crowd favorite and the golden flaky biscuits are so good they’re the star of the restaurant’s website address;
