The Forest Acres Restaurant & Merchant Association (FARMA)

FARMA is a non-profit business organization, exclusive to Forest Acres SC, which has a stated goal of strengthening the bonds between consumers and the community. The group's mission is to be a proactive voice of business for the entire community. 

Forest Acres: Where the Midlands Comes to Shop

Home to small and locally owned boutiques to coveted and popular national brands alike , Forest Acres is known for its premier shopping district. 

You can find clothing, furniture, toys, shoes, art, antiques, and gifts in Forest Acres. There is a diverse shopping atmosphere to meet all tastes.

Though Forest Acres maintains its treasured small-town feel within the residential areas of the city, the main thoroughfares of Forest Drive, Trenholm Road and Beltline Boulevard generate enough traffic to support a quality and scale of shopping not frequently found in small towns.
