August is Farmers Market Month in South Carolina

ArborOne Farm Credit is celebrating the bounty of farm fresh produce available in our state during National Farmers Market Week (August 5 – 11) and Farmers Market Month – August. ArborOne is encouraging consumers to show their support the agriculture community by continuing to purchase from local farm and farmers markets and roadside stands.
Our weather has been beautiful and there is bountiful fresh, delicious produce to be found throughout South Carolina. There are more than 7,000 farmers markets across the United States and 170 in South Carolina. This month is the perfect opportunity to try that wonderful dish you’ve always wanted to try with fresh produce from local farmers.
Farmers markets allow consumers to have access to locally grown, farm fresh products and enable farmers the opportunity to interact one-on-one with their customer, developing consumer loyalty with the farmers who grow the produce. Look for the Certified SC Grown logo to find South Carolina grown produce and products.
