Art, Coffee, Shopping, & Food at Durham’s “The Streetery”

(The Triangle Trend) — On the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, you can look forward to some much needed family time, socializing, eating, shopping, and even dancing, because The Streetery has returned to Downtown Durham!

Roadways will be completely backed off for nothing but pedestrian circulation at The Streetery. Bring your friends, partners, and kiddos to experience everything downtown Durham has to offer, including cuisine, shopping opportunities, live music, and more.

Places to eat:

106 Main

Friendly faces and excellent service in an old-school pub with handcrafted cocktails and local beer. A fantastic location, directly across the corner from the Durham Bulls Ballpark and the DPAC.

Bull City Burger & Brewery

An American eatery that works directly with North Carolina pasture-raised beef farmers to source beef that is added-hormone-free and antibiotic-free, which they grind daily to produce hamburgers and all-beef hotdogs. They collaborate with farmers who harvest tomatoes, cucumbers, and lettuce.


A locally owned and run Organic Juice & Smoothie Bar founded by a brother and sister duo to give “keys” to wonderful health. Their enthusiasm about the connections that exist between nutrition, education, and living an active lifestyle comes through in all their dishes and drinks.


With nationally-known partners from throughout the country, this chef-driven kitchen offers a genuine taste of the islands to all willing to seek them out. Their handcrafted Signature Works and limited-edition bowls provide distinct flavors inspired by a diverse range of cultures from Hawaii and throughout the world.

Pie Pushers

Founded by Mike Hacker And Becky Cascio, Pie Pushers boasts a unique crust that is now known as “Durham-style”. It’s a thin crust tossed by hand, that somehow manages to be perfectly crunchy and fluffy at the same time. Featuring a more eclectic, interesting, and seasonal touch to traditional pie offerings, Pie Pushers is not only delicious, but frequently locally sourced with ingredients from local farmers and artisans.

A bakery that specializes in hearth-baked sourdough breads and pastries, located in the center of downtown Durham.
