Family Fun Day Returns to the State Farmers Market

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Are you looking for a fun, free event to take your family to this summer? Come out to the second annual Family Fun Day at the State Farmers Market in West Columbia on Saturday, June 27 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The event will be held under the north Certified SC shed, where visitors will be able to shop a variety of vendors for fresh, local produce. Members of the SC Specialty Foods Association will also be on site, selling an assortment of Certified SC products.

The South Carolina Department of Agriculture’s commodity boards will be passing out free samples of their products. Enjoy a taste of local peanuts, peaches, watermelon, pork, and beef, while supplies last.

Children will be able to enjoy an exciting kid’s area with a bouncy house and face painting, as well as learn more about South Carolina agriculture through several games and crafts. There will be a local DJ at the event playing fun, summertime tunes. Grab something to eat from the food vendors on site or visit Dupre at the Market, the State Farmers Market’s on-site restaurant, for a delicious lunch.

For more information on the event, contact Elizabeth Shuler at or 803-734-0328. The State Farmers Market is located at 3483 Charleston Hwy., West Columbia.
