Meet Duncan and Meg

Duncan and Meg Morgan and their three kids have lived in Orange County since 2007. They love living in Carrboro!

Together they own High Street Design, a design and branding house located in Carrboro. They have done work for countless small businesses, won a few awards, and have now expanded to offer design, photography, and creative for a full branding experience. Duncan and Meg are also the coordinators/ promoters of The Bazaar, which is an arts and handmade crafts market featuring local artists, music, food trucks and beverages! The Bazaar is held at the Carrboro Town Commons, and they have held a market in Chapel Hill too!

The Morgan’s found it very hard to pick their favorite food spot in town, because they think there are so many amazing eats here! If they had to pick one, it would be the Merry Franksters food truck because the people who run it are as delicious as the food they serve. Duncan and Meg say the fried brussel sprouts are to die for.

Their kids would tell you Carrboro Pizza Oven because, in their opinion, it has "the best pizza ever". A place you can't go wrong with any of the pizza pies - they even have gluten-free pizza!


When out and about shopping at their favorite local retailers in Carrboro, Meg adores Sofia's Boutique. Their oldest son is a fan of  Townsend Bertram & Co, a local adventure outfitter since 1988, and was heartbroken to hear that owner Audrey Townsend is retiring and closing the store. Their daughter loves Mulberry Silks and Fine Fabrics which has been in business over 37 years. And their youngest son can't get enough of Ali Cat Toys. All of these shops are located in the historic Carr Mill Mall which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Alberta Mill Complex. Duncan is a long-time fan of The Clean Machine and Back Alley bike shops.

What’s their favorite thing to do in Orange County? They love hiking the Bolin Creek and Battle Branch trails. And going to the nationally recognized Carrboro Farmers Market. The kids love the old school video games at The Baxter Arcade, where you can still play games for just 25 cents, and getting goodies at Weaver Street Market.
