New SFC Program: Columbia Slow Food Exchange

The Columbia Slow Food Exchange message board seeks to build a local food network linking regional farmers with Slow Food Columbia members.

We are lucky to have many wonderful small farms nearby; the best way for us to ensure their survival is to support them!

The group is open to dues-paying Slow Food Columbia members, as well as regional farmers and purveyors. It's main purpose is for producers to share information and post announcements about local produce/livestock/etc. available for purchase or trade.

Become a member today and be sure to note your region as Columbia, SC.
