Get to Know Us

The Sumter Farmers Market serves the greater Sumter area and surrounding community. Through the generosity of the University of South Carolina - Sumter, the farmers market is held weekly on Fridays from noon-5 p.m. (late March - late November) on university property at 200 Miller Road. The Sumter Farmers Market is independently governed by its own market board. 

The Sumter Farmers Market Strategic Plan is

  • To educate consumers about farm products and the benefits of buying direct from local farmers and growers. 

  • To offer a venue for local artisans, bakers, crafters, food trucks and other approved vendors a place to sell their products.

  • To encourage local consumers to make healthy food choices by offering a family friendly, centrally located venue for both farmers and consumers to participate in.

 

Our Vision is: 

To provide access to healthy food choices to Sumter area consumers and the surrounding community.

 

Our Mission is: 

To support farmers and preserve farmland for the future by providing small family farmers opportunities to sell their fruits, vegetables and other farm products to area consumers.

 

The Sumter Farmers Market offers local area farmers, artisans, bakers, food trucks, and other vendors without a storefront, a venue to sell their products directly to the consumer. Our produce farmers grow a minimum of 75-80% of what they sell, and our livestock farmers humanely raise their animals on pasture with no antibiotics or added growth hormones.

 

Since the farmers market began with just a handful of vendors, it has grown to include 25+ vendors from

8 counties. The market prides itself on offering a variety of Certified South Carolina fresh fruits and vegetables, pasture raised meats, milk, eggs, butter, homemade breads, cakes, pies, cookies, soaps, artisanal craft items, and unique food truck offerings from our diverse group of vendors.

 

The Sumter Farmers Market is supported by an increasing number of consumers who enjoy visiting and shopping local.

 

A few of our customers have said:

 

“Everyone is as friendly as can be and the food is so fresh and beautiful!”

“Great way to meet the farmers and get amazing meat! Very friendly and knowledgeable. Buy local. Thank you for making this available. Great vendors with fantastic products.”

“Love that we FINALLY have something local that is great
for our family and perfect for our community! SHOP LOCAL!”

“This is a wonderful market with lots of goodies to try and taste. All of the goods are local and there is a wide variety to choose from. They also have local artisans who have everything from wood carving to homemade soap for sale. I recommend the meats, all of which are hormone free and taste great. Support Local!”


“We visited the Sumter Farmers Market for the first time today. I was impressed with the variety of healthy selections (grass-fed beef, pastured pork, chicken and eggs, fresh creamery items, and produce) as well as the other items of craftsmanship and prepared foods that were offered.”
 

“So great that Sumter has this! Love the food truck! Support our local peeps!”
