Where to Buy Local

South Carolina Department of Agriculture, in addition to helping farmers grow crops, also helps consumers find those crops.

SC Ag Commissioner Hugh Weathers says the departments’ Certified Roadside Market Program was established in 1972, the first official roadside market program in the state.  This is a guide for consumers to find locally grown food.

In addition, there are farmers’ markets, including the state-run markets, Community Supported Agriculture, also known as CSA’s and so much more.
