The Kershaw County Farmers Market (KCFM) opens for business again Saturday and will be open each Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon through November 23.
“Opening day -- as the market will throughout the year -- will “feature a wide variety of qualified vendors providing an abundance of locally grown produce, humanely raised pastured meats, farm fresh eggs, garden and landscaping plants, specialty coffees, handmade soaps, artisan breads, cheesecakes, unique food trucks, kettle corn and crafters,” KCFM Board Chair Laurey Carpenter said in a recent press release.
The markets mission is to provide fresh, local, in-season South Carolina grown products to consumers.
“By providing a central location for Kershaw County and South Carolina growers and producers to connect and market directly with consumers, citizens gain a local alternative to corporate food production,” Carpenter said.
New this year at the market will be T-shirts and reusable tote bags for area consumers. These items can be purchased anytime during the market season for a nominal fee.
