A Camden farmer’s market which will be accessible to all people moved a step closer to reality recently, thanks to a contribution from AT&T to the PLAY Foundation. The $5,000 contribution will enable completion of Phase 2 of the project to build a new Farmers’ Market Pavilion – purchasing land located at the corner of Broad Street and Clyburn Lane. “Establishing the Kershaw County Farmers Market was my first community priority as the new Representative for Kershaw County,” Rep. Laurie Funderburk said.
