With (possibly false) spring in the air, many thoughts may be turning to digging in the dirt or serving up a seasonal favorite.
Anyone looking for additions to their garden, home or dining room table can browse the variety of vendors at the Midlands Spring Plant & Flower Festival, returning to the South Carolina State Farmers Market from April 7-10.
Visitors can shop for plants, garden essentials, Certified South Carolina produce, springtime decor and more. The Ask-A-Master Gardener booth will be back, while food vendors will be on hand and the Market Restaurant will be open for business.
The event will take place from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday at the Farmers Market, located at 3483 Charleston Highway in West Columbia.
