New farmers market ready to show off

Oct 5, 2010 12:07:00 AM - thestate.com

With the first major event at the new State Farmers Market coming this weekend, the early reviews of the 174-acre, $85 million facility in Lexington County are positive.

“We’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for it to open,” Linda Sauls of Lexington said Monday, after buying several mini-pumpkins on her first visit. “I love it. I think it’s going to be a big asset to the whole area.”

Sauls and Faye Riley of Swansea said they particularly like the new location on U.S. 321, near the intersection of Interstates 26 and 77, compared to the market’s longtime home on Bluff Road, across from Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia.

“No more getting in that traffic (in Columbia),” Sauls said. “Just one turn off the interstate and you’re here.”
