WELCOME!

The mission of the KCFM 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. The main objective of the KCFM is to support existing, and encourage new, small independent South Carolina growers and producers. Additionally, it is the purpose of the KCFM to provide a community gathering space for residents and visitors of Kershaw County.


NEW YEAR, NEW LOCATION

The Kershaw County Farmers hosts a
Vendor Open House for the 2015 Market Season

The Kershaw County Farmers Market will kick off its 10th market season in Camden on April 4, 2015 with a new location. This year the market will be held at 222 Broad St. Camden, SC  29020 at the Historic Camden Revolutionary War Park!

In order to have another successful season of serving farm fresh vegetables, meats, dairy, baked goods, local honey, soaps, flowers, plants  and many other items we are opening up the opportunity for local vendors to sell at the market. Interested vendors are encouraged to attend A Vendor Open House on March 10th, 6PM at the Extension Homemakers Building located at 634 West DeKalb Street in Camden.  During this open house, vendors will fill out an application and learn more about the market and the new location. Light refreshments will also be served.   The Kershaw County Farmers Market will also have new rules the 2015 season.

“The market has a new location this year! We will have more traffic more vendors with many new items available.  Our desire is to enhance the shopping and selling experience at the market and by making this move and expanding the number of vendors we are confident we will succeed,” said Craig Bell Kershaw County Farmers Market Board President, and owner of Camden City Market.

The Kershaw County Farmers Market 2015 season opens on Saturday April 4th and runs every Saturday through November 21st from 8am-Noon. 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.

KCFM Tips

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 following.

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.
