Our Market was started approximately around or before the Depression of 1929, when the Clemson Cooperative Extension grjoup iin Orangeburg County wanted a place for farm women in Orangeburg County and the surrounding area to sell their farm produce and related farm products. This farm market moved approximately three times, because it outgrew its space, to a place which was built by the market women and their husbands. At one time, there were more sellers than space at the present location, but age and death took its toll, until my mother, age 95, is the sole original member. Now she spends from 5-7 or 8 hours a day, with her grandsons help, growing produce and helping preserve food to sell at this market yet. Her co-members are a 70-year-old couple, who are our friends, and co-members at her church, and me, her daughter. Gail, our co-member, carries a variety of baked goods and preserved food in jars, as well as hand-knitted items and other craft items. Her husband brings produce in season, makes chichen noodle and vegetable soups, which are already seasoned and which are ready to be put in the freezer, should the custoomer desire, as well as bromiliads, and other flowers, both potted and fresh cut. We carry a variety of items, such as plenty of daffodils, cut fresh, preserved food in jars, homemade dog biscuits (using some items from our garden, greenery (yew, boxwood, tea olive, cedar, etc., wreathes, herbs, fresh produce in season, other flowers, both potted and fresh cut.
