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.
