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!”


“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.”


“Always a Fun Morning”
