Looking for a farmers market?  There's an app for that.

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) wants to remind residents of the S.C. Farmers and Roadside Market App to find and buy fresh produce locally. 

The web-based app shows the location, hours of operation and accepted payment types, including WIC, SNAP and senior voucher programs, for hundreds of farmers markets and roadside produce stands across the state including here in the Upstate. 

"The first year we had 229 markets and stands. Now, that number has grown to 356,” said Nick Davidson, DHEC's interim director of Public Health. “The app makes it easy to find local, affordable options for fresh produce, which can empower families to make healthier food choices.” 

The app does more than just give predictable locations and hours of markets and stands.  It also provides healthy recipes featuring in-season produce each month.  

To use the S.C. Farmers and Roadside Market App, visit www.scdhec.gov/farmersmarkets.
