Remembering Bill Dow

Photo by Ashley Young, August 2011
The SFA is sad to hear of the passing of Bill Dow, one of the founders of the Carrboro Farmers' Market. Bill sold his Ayrshire Farm produce at the CFM for over thirty years and was one of the interviewees in our Carrboro Farmers' Market oral history project. A former pediatrician and lecturer at UNC's School of Public Health, Dow was a passionate advocate for public access to fresh, healthy foods. Our thoughts are with his longtime companion, Daryl Walker.
