Fall festival coming up at Aiken County Farmers Market

Posted: October 11, 2017 - 12:54am

Farms and farmers will be celebrated at the Aiken County Farmers Market's Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 21, from sunrise to noon, according to a news release.

"The Farm Festival is our annual show of support and appreciation for those who work tirelessly to provide us with fresh fruits and vegetables year-round," said Jenny Burghardt, tourism supervisor for the City of Aiken. "The festival also is a celebration of the fact that agriculture, along with the railroads and horses, put Aiken on the map and has shaped its culture. This year, the Farm Festival is very pleased to have the involvement of the Aiken office of the Clemson Extension Agency and Aiken County 4-H clubs."

Members of the 4-H Club will be selling pumpkins to raise funds for scholarships. Clemson Extension Agency representatives will be offering advice on how to handle food safely. Music will be provided by the Mountain Dulcimers of Aiken. Sugar Bear Catering will be serving breakfast from its pop-up kitchen.

Along with the fresh local produce and baked goods, market vendors offer honey, eggs, meats, soaps, candles and a variety of crafts.

The market is located near downtown Aiken at 115 Williamsburg St. It is nine blocks east of the Aiken Visitors Center and Train Museum.

Fall Fest events at the Aiken County Farmers Market are free and open to the public.

The market is the oldest farmers market in continuous service in the same location in South Carolina
