DURHAM, N.C. — While it won’t be confused with a certain New York locale, the Central Park neighborhood in downtown has surfaced as an offbeat, community-minded place to hang and have a bite. These spots have led the way.
Durham Farmers’ Market When the market moved from a parking lot to a covered pavilion on Foster Street in 2007, it attracted newcomers to the once-blighted area. With the block closed to vehicles during peak months, the area hums like a street fair — food trucks included. 501 Foster St., www .durhamfarmersmarket.com, Saturday mornings year-round, Wednesday afternoons seasonally
