South Carolina’s Market Bulletin Celebrates 100 years

This month marks a very special anniversary for South Carolina agriculture.

“This is the 100th anniversary of the Market Bulletin. We put a lot of effort into it to have it be a commemorative issue and we’ve been successful.
Over the last 100 years, the Market Bulletin has evolved. Originally it was an insert into the state newspaper. Then it was added to the Greenville papers, and other cities. About 12 years later it began as a stand-alone and was that way until it became available on line. We do about 17,000 printed versions and about 1500 electronic.

The purpose has remained the same, to help promote commerce. There are ads in there for farm products and then it is a valuable information source on relevant topics. Some of the non-farm readers can get a better feel for what is happening in SC farming.

One unique thing about the publication is that we are one of about 6 states that still maintain this type of service. It is still speaking mostly to farmers and those with a farm interest.

    I am a subscriber to the South Carolina Market Bulletin…. I have not received my copy in two months…. What gives ?????

    • Len, I’d check with the South Carolina Department of Agriculture in Columbia. Online, I didn’t find a phone number, but this link where you can email them..https://agriculture.sc.gov/about/contact/

      I don’t receive the publication, either, but it’s my understanding that for cost savings and convenience they’re trying to get away from hard copies and focusing more on digital distribution.

      Thanks for reading SFNToday dot com!
