Saturday will be about all things naturally sweet as the Columbus County Farmers Market holds Honey Day this Saturday.

The event will feature local honey, honey and beeswax-based products like lotions, salves, soaps, candles, lip balm, as well as delicious honey-based baked goods and other food products.  

The Columbus County Beekeepers Association plans to have a space to promote the local beekeeping and honey industry.  Other honey vendors are encouraged to participate as a vendor at the market.  The cost is $15 per space.

Honey Day is this Saturday  from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

The market always has a good variety of locally grown, farm fresh products for sale including figs, okra, peppers, squash, fresh cut flowers, eggs, jams, jellies, pickles, handmade wood crafts and more.

Much of the 2020 monthly special events calendar at Columbus County Community Farmers Market has fallen victim to the Coronavirus pandemic according to President and Board chair Lindy Harold Shuman, a local farmer and vendor at the market.

“As a result of special COVID-19 safety procedures which encourage social distancing and wearing of face coverings/masks, so far the market has been able to successfully operate on every Saturday of the current season and still protect everyone’s health and safety,” Shuman said.

 Other upcoming special events on the schedule include Sweet Potato Day on Oct. 17; the Farm-to-Table Dinner Fundraiser at The Farm at Union Valley on Thursday, Oct. 22; Collard and Cornbread Day on Nov. 14; and the “Christmas from the Heart” Craft Show & Sale on Saturday, Dec. 5.
