State Farmers' Market

Serving Columbia since 1952, the 50-acre State Farmers' Market, 1001 Bluff Rd. (tel. 803/737-4664), is ranked in the top 10 in the nation for sales volume. Selling fruits and vegetables, as well as flowers and plants, the market has more than 500 open stalls, as well as wholesale and retail units. It also has four restaurants and a U.S. Post Office. Don't worry about rain or inclement weather -- a 100,000-square-foot drive-through building provides shelter to both sellers and buyers. The market is open Monday to Saturday 6am to 9pm and Sunday 1 to 6pm. It's across the street from the University of South Carolina's football stadium.
