Our History

The Foothills Heritage Market is a 501(c)3 non-profit operated under the umbrella organization of the Foothills Agriculture Resource and Marketing Center (The F.A.R.M. Center).

We first opened in the spring of 2013 as a result of municipal markets being served by vendors who were re-selling produce purchased at state markets operated in Atlanta or Columbia, which are not truly “local.” The F.A.R.M. Center was formed as part of a plan to build the wealth of our county’s growers, entrepreneurs, and artists. All farms are site-inspected to ensure that “local” means local.

Our Vision

The vision of The F.A.R.M. Center is to build a year-round market, offering fresh local produce to the citizens of our county and operating a center that provides meeting space as well as market space throughout the year

The market center will include a commercial kitchen that will allow farmers to make specialty food items that can be sold—not only at the market but at stores and shops in surrounding tourist areas.
