ARC's July 2013 Jobs and Local Food Systems Tour in Appalachian South Carolina included a visit to the Hub City Farmers Market (HCFM) in Spartanburg, which operates a "mobile market" that brings local produce to area communities, increasing both demand for and availability of fresh, healthy food.

Shown above are (from left to right) ARC Federal Co-Chair Earl Gohl; HCFM Manager Nikki Smith; HCFM Interim Executive Director Brendan Buttimer; Greenville County Community Planning and Development Department Principal Planner Scott Park; South Carolina ARC Program Manager Megan Anderson; ARC Office of the Federal Co-Chair Chief of Staff Guy Land; South Carolina Appalachian Council of Governments Executive Director Steve Pelissier; South Carolina USDA Community Facilities Program Director Jesse Risher; South Carolina Appalachian Council of Governments Grants Services Director Dirk Reis; and HCFM Community Outreach Coordinator Jerry Allen.
