Who We Are

Formerly known as the Durham Fruit and Produce Company, a century ago this 22,000sf warehouse complex housed giant coolers for fruits and veggies arriving by train. Today, The Fruit is a social enterprise dedicated to making and experiencing visual and performing arts that include dance, painting, photography, and drama.

What We Do

The Fruit exists ​to engage, inspire, entertain and challenge audiences. We are an art space with highly intentional visual and performing arts programming. We love hosting alternative and emerging artists among world class artists.

We are a great rental space for art exhibits, photo and video shoots, warehouse parties, music performances, weddings, theatre, group meetings, workshops, retreats, conferences, album releases, fundraisers, film screenings and a host of other events.
