SC Certified Market Showcases Produce, Art and More

The Pee Dee is a richly fertile place, yet many people are unaware that it supports a viable citrus farm, serving customers nationwide.

Stan McKenzie’s Japanese Yuzu trees and other crops have been stirring up attention from media near and far. And he’ll be among the 30 vendors participating in this year’s Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market, a celebration of South Carolina product, specialty food and craft.

The SC certified market will operate both Fridays and Saturdays of  ArtFields from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Last year, 2,000 visitors circulated among the rows of vendors necessitating expanded hours of operation. The market is located in the historic Atlantic Coast Line Building at 103 Irvin Street.

Among the products visitors can shop for: homemade soaps, specialty jellies and jams, woodcraft, ceramics, handcrafted jewelry, SC-grown produce and even artworks by some of the ArtFields competition artists.

The market is sponsored by the Community Museum Society, Inc. of Lake City.
