Family Ag Day Returns to the State Farmers Market

WEST COLUMBIA – Are you looking for a free, family-friendly event to attend this summer? Come out to the 4th annual Family Ag Day at the State Farmers Market on Saturday, July 8 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The event is under the north Certified SC shed, where visitors can shop from a variety of vendors for fresh, local produce, specialty food products, and hand crafted items. The South Carolina Department of Agriculture’s commodity boards will be passing out free samples of their products.  Enjoy a taste of peanuts, peaches, watermelon, pork, and beef, while supplies last.

Celebrate agriculture while you visit the tractor exhibit and learn what it’s like to sit in a combine while harvesting crops in Farm Bureau’s Ag Simulator. Children can enjoy an exciting kids’ area with a bouncy house, fruit and vegetable temporary tattoos, and learn more about South Carolina agriculture through several games and crafts.  Enjoy fun, summertime tunes from a DJ and grab something to eat from food vendors.

For more information on the event, contact Elizabeth Wood at or 803-917-4950. The State Farmers Market is located at 3483 Charleston Hwy., West Columbia.
