SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (Wednesday, August 5, 2020) – The Summerville Farmers Market will return to normal operations beginning Saturday, August 8, 2020. The Town will operate the event with COVID-19 measures outlined in Governor Henry McMaster’s most recent Executive Order along with social distancing guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Face coverings will be required. The Summerville Farmers Market runs every Saturday through November from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Town Hall.

Town Council passed an emergency ordinance requiring the public to wear face coverings in all establishments where face-to-face interaction occurs through 11:59 p.m. Thursday, August 13, unless renewed or sooner terminated by Council. The vote was made at the regular scheduled monthly council meeting on Thursday, July 7, in the best interest of public health and out of an abundance of caution in helping to reduce risk of exposure to COVID-19.

All Town Council, Committees, Boards, and Commission meetings will be held electronically through Thursday, August 13. The Town will host meetings through Zoom, a digital conferencing service that allows meetings to be broadcast on the Internet to devices such as computers, tablets, and phones.
