Make sure to connect to The Kershaw County Farmers
Market on Facebook and Twitter. We look forward to
seeing you at the Open House On March 10th
and Opening day on April 4th. We’ve got
a good thing growing, come experience it!
Summer is in full bloom at the market thanks to all the rain.
No matter the weather, you can count on the Kershaw County
Farmers Market to open. When it rains and you stay away,
it causes our farmers to lose a lot. According to estimates,
farmers canlose up to 50% of their business when it rains or
the weather turns inclement. Unlike the big chain grocery
stores, farmers can not make up the difference in the days
The farmers market is more than a place to exchange cash for
goods. It is a place to build relationships and support
small business at the same time. Here we are closer to the
producers, making us responsible and concerned for their
success. We then become co-producers, an important and
necessary link in the process of providing safe, sustainable
and affordable food for everyone.
If you are committed to supporting your local farmers,
consider coming to the market on rainy days. It may not be
as fun as shopping under clear Carolina blue skies, but look
at it this way, the crowds will be smaller and your farmer
will be most grateful for your support.
We are promoting a healthier lifestyle by making the Farmers
Market a smoke free environment.
We hope our fans and
supporters will continue to enjoy shopping as we make the
market a safe and healthy place to connect with friends
