Find everything you need to nourish your brain, body, and belly—helping establish our city as the real southern hotspot for locals and visitors alike. Soda City Market is a microcosm of Columbia, a melting pot of cultures, and an inviting community experience worth making a part of your regular weekend routine.

150 Vendors Every Week

Soda City Market and Brookland Brunch are producer-only markets — vendors must make it or grow it. Everything sold at our markets are unique, hand crafted, and produced, right here, in South Carolina. We have an average of 150 vendors per week, and we have a database of over 400 vendors.

What People are Saying

“Great Saturday Morning”

“Love, love Soda City market!! Great way to spend Saturday mornings, grab some awesome produce, great food vendors and local artisans…or stop in and have a sit-down brunch at one of the restaurants on Main Street!”

Donnah

“Fun Afternoon”

“Spent a few hours walking around the Soda City open air market and found it to be a delightful way to spend the afternoon. There were a variety of artists and food vendors. We were in Columbia and found several items to bring home – handmade soap, a unique leather bag and ceramic coasters. It was a nice way to check out the town and get a feel for the local culture.”
