COLUMBIA — In response to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, and in accordance with Gov. Henry McMaster’s March 19 executive order, the South Carolina Department of Agriculture has closed all physical office locations to the public.
The three state farmers markets (in West Columbia, Greenville, and Florence) remain open for regular business.
SCDA staff are still available by phone and email, with many working remotely during the COVID-19 response.
SCDA will continue accepting deliveries via UPS, USPS and FedEx. Laboratory samples and hemp permit applications can still be dropped off at our Consumer Protection Division facility at 123 Ballard Court in West Columbia.
