New mobile farmers market service coming to DHEC

By Jamie Shuster

DHEC mobile farmers market

One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is to start eating healthier. So beginning this Monday, January 5, we’ll be offering a weekly, mobile farmers market at three of our Central Office locations to help our busy staff buy fresh, seasonal groceries from the convenience of their workplace.

How will it work?

Each week, we’ll be sending out an email alerting staff that the mobile farmers market has arrived onsite. We’ll also offer a tasty, seasonal recipe courtesy of our WIC nutrition staff that you can use to prepare affordable and healthy meals for your family.

Below is a list of the expected times that Charles Jumper, aka “The Veggie Man,” from Jumper Farm will be onsite with his mobile market:

  • Sims/Aycock – Mondays between 1:30 and 2:30 PM
  • Mills/Jarrett – Mondays between 2:30 and 3:30 PM
  • Columbia Mills – Fridays between 1:30 and 2:30 PM

For more details on the types of seasonal items that may be offered, as well as average prices, check out the Jumper Farm pricing sheet (cash or checks accepted). We’ve also created a quick “Keeping it Fresh” guide to help you store and prepare your fresh produce each week.

I hope our new mobile farmers market service will help inspire a healthier start to 2015 for you and your family. Happy New Year!
