Certified SC Grown

The Certified South Carolina program is an exciting cooperative effort with farmers, processors, wholesalers, retailers and the South Carolina Department of Agriculture (SCDA) to brand and promote South Carolina products. When consumers can easily identify, find and buy South Carolina products, they are taking home fresher, tastier foods and supporting local farmers.


Certified Farmers Markets

We all know the freshest, tastiest food is local. And when it comes to South Carolina, we have an abundance of it. Our state grows everything from apples to zucchini, including blackberries, green onions, leeks and rice. So where can you find all this delicious, locally grown food? Find out and help support local farmers.
