Event Details

Columbus County Community Farmers Market will host the 12th annual Kid’s Back-to-School Fun Day on Saturday, August 8, from 9 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.  Admission is free.  The back-to-school event will include informative exhibits, free refreshments, school supplies, and much more for the entire family.  The first 200 school-age students will receive free school supplies.  Student must be present.  All prizes, giveaways and samples are available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.

“This school year will be likely be another unusual one due to COVID-19,” said Susie Rockel, farmers market manager.  “But, we want our local students and their families to come to the farmers market to help get the new school year off to a great start with free supplies, health screenings and information.”

As in the past, other various community organizations, including the lead sponsor, Columbus Regional Healthcare System, will have booths set-up to provide valuable information for children, parents and families.  The Farmers Market welcomes interested non-profit and community organizations that serve children and families to participate by calling (910) 840-6743 or emailing info@columbuscountyfarmersmarket.com to reserve a free booth space, while available.

As with normal weekly market operations, special COVID-19 safety procedures including social distancing and required face coverings/masks will be in place to help protect everyone’s health and safety.

In addition to the special activities, a good variety of farm fresh products will be available for sale including peanuts, melons, peaches, cabbage, okra, squash, zucchini, onions, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, potatoes, plants, crafts, honey, honey soaps, baked goods, eggs, jams, jellies, fresh-cut flowers, and more!
