Farmer’s market scheduled for Saturday
LAURINBURG – The Farmers’ Market will return to McDuffie Square on Saturday morning.
The market will run from 9 a.m. to noon at the intersection of Atkinson and Railroad streets and through the guided tour of downtown Laurinburg.
“We hope to have a good group of suppliers and we have reached out to other suppliers to make it more robust,” said Cory Hughes, Scotland County Tourism Director. “We hope the weather will cooperate with us and be one of the next ones to come.”
Typically, the event features produce, plants, honey, and craft vendors allowing people to see a variety of things that are grown and made in the county. The last farmer’s market was held in conjunction with the Downtown Fun Fest in August.
“This is the start of our farmers market,” said Daniel Walters, downtown development manager. “We build on that and it grows. The more of these events we have, the better and the more people come out. It will take some time to develop this on a larger scale, but that is the ultimate goal. “
Hughes added that there will also be markets in October and November, so those who cannot make it downtown will have other opportunities.
