FLORENCE, S.C. — The Florence City Center Farmers Market, already known for locally grown healthy food, took it to the next level with Tuesday night's market.

"Because Eat Smart Move More wasn't able to have its Full Life Festival because of the COVID, we decided to do a health and wellness opportunity Tuesday night at the market," said Merrette Dowdell, market manager.
