Beginning Saturday, February 28, biking to the All Local Farmer’s Market, in Columbia SC, is not only a great option, but strongly encouraged as well. In partnership with Palmetto Cycling Coalition and Bike Columbia, the All Local Farmer’s Market has developed Bike to the Market in hopes of encouraging patrons to reduce their automobile use and enjoy some fresh air. The event, which by is promoted specifically every 4th Saturday from February to June at the Rosewood Market, (on the corner of Rosewood Drive and Maple Street) will kick off the celebration by offering visitors the chance to win a free bike basket.
The All-Local Farmer’s Market operates year round, rain or shine, every second Saturday in The Vista at Gervais & Vine and every fourth Saturday at Rosewood Market.
