The 2018 South Carolina Ag + Art Tour canvasses a large swath of the state in June, with the Pee Dee Region first up June 2-3!
Every weekend in June the largest farm and art tour in the United States visits participating farms and farmers markets while featuring artisans at those locations. The free, self-guided tour includes Chesterfield, Darlington, Florence, and Horry counties on June 2-3.
The farms participating in Florence County Saturday, June 2, include: Moore Farms Botanical Garden, McKenzie Farms and Nursery, City Center Farmers Market, Pee Dee State Farmer’s Market, The Barn, and Green Acres Country Market. Saturdays hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. except the City Center Farmers Market, which will follow its regular 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. hours. Make sure to allow enough time for each stop and travelling between the stops so you can make them all and not rush!
Sunday it’s 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., with The Barn and Moore Farms Botanical Gardens participating.
In Florence, visitors on the tour will get the chance to visualize how their food is created, quiz artists about their creative wares (and purchase their works), and learn more about the idiosyncrasies of rural life. And it’s all free!
Artisans will include weavers, woodworkers, jewelers, photographers, soap makers, storytellers and more.
