All Ready to Eat vendors MUST comply with all DHEC regulations prior to applying to vend at the Hartsville Farmers Market. Should a DHEC inspection occur at the Hartsville Farmers Market, the burden of proof of compliance remains with the vendors, not with the Hartsville Farmers Market or the City of Hartsville.
