The granddaddy of them all is Columbia State Farmers Market (1001 Bluff Rd., 803/737-4664, Mon.–Sat. 6 a.m.–9 p.m., Sun. 1–6 p.m.), in operation at this same 50-acre site, with a 100,000 square-foot drive-through building. This state-operated facility, one of three such in South Carolina, has 500 stalls, 100 wholesale outlets, about 40 retail outlets, and even its own U.S. Post Office location.
Downtown, the Trinity Episcopal Church Farmers Market (1100 Sumter St., 803/771-7300, Sun. 8:30 a.m.–noon) sells local produce each Sunday in the warm seasons.
In the Vista you’ll find the All-Local Farmers Market (www.stateplate.org, 8 a.m.–noon), held every second Saturday of the month on the patio of the popular local restaurant, Gervais & Vine (620A Gervais St.) and every fourth Saturday at Rosewood Market (2803 Rosewood Dr.).
