About the Market

The Healthy Carolina Farmers Market aims to emphasize the direct connection between local food choices people make and the quality and health of our environment and daily lives. The market promotes overall wellness through campus resources, cooking demonstrations, health screenings and community engagement, while still providing access to healthy, fresh and locally grown goods.

Supporting South Carolina Farmers

Farmers market vendors must sell sustainable and locally grown or sourced products. By providing farmers and growers with a direct market for their products, the Healthy Carolina Farmers Market helps sustain the regional agricultural economy and helps ensure the future of farming in South Carolina.

Rules & Regulations for Vendors [PDF]

All vendors must read and agree to our rules and regulations before they can sell at the market.
