The University of South Carolina is redeveloping the existing ±54-acre State Farmers Market into a multi-use high-end tailgating and student/Gamecock fan activity facility. This project will be developed in phases for the primary use of vehicular and RV parking on game day events. Most parking areas will be equipped with a tent zone and some will be equipped with electrical and CATV hook-ups. There will be an emphasis on providing adequate restroom facilities, numerous shade trees, and a large greensward area for year round users/tailgaters to recreate and for the football team to make game-day entrance among the fans. Other potential uses are football practice fields, indoor practice facility, retail stores and an amphitheater.
