Farmers Markets Opening All Over the State

By:Gwen Fowler

Date:8/26/2014

One of the best things about spring in South Carolina is that farmers markets are opening for the season, giving all of us places to buy directly from farmers who grow delicious foods.

Farmers markets across South Carolina are filled with strawberries, corn, peaches and other homegrown fruits and vegetables. What a pleasure to buy tomatoes and cucumbers and all sorts of vegetables grown right in our own area. 

The S.C. Farmers ​​Markets in West Col​umbia, Greenvil​le and Flo​rence are open year-round, and so are some of the city markets. I often shop at Myrtle’s​ Market, the city of Myrtle B​each farmers market, and it is open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday all year.

Lots of the city and community markets throughout the state have just opened for the season or will open soon. One of the markets below, listed by city, is probably close to where you live. Visit often and buy lots from the farmers in your area. Remember, no farms, no food.
