Lake City Farmers Market reopens Thursday

May 9, 2019

LAKE CITY, S.C. – The Lake City Farmers Market will reopen for a new season Thursday at The Bean Market.

Stan McKenzie, the administrator for the market, said the Lake City Museum Board previously decided to shut the market down for this year but later reversed the decision.

The farmers market will be open from 1 to 6 p.m. every Thursday until December. Vendors will sell anything from fruits and vegetables to plants, crafts and local honey.

At 5:30 p.m. Thursday, there will be a big basket drawing that will include flowers and other things. McKenzie said people are encouraged to register for the drawing.

A plant swap will be featured at the farmers market on May 16. McKenzie said people are asked to bring a flower with them to the farmers market, and they will be able to take home a different one.

“We will try to have an activity every Thursday to get people there,” McKenzie said.

There is a $20 yearly fee for people who are interested in serving as a vendor. Call The Bean Market at 843-374-1500 to sign up to be a vendor.

The Bean Market is at 111 Henry St. in Lake City.
