About the Market

Soda City Market is a producer-only market — vendors must make or grow their own products (including out of season/exotic fruits and vegetables, antiques, and vintage items). Everything sold at our market is unique, hand crafted, and produced in the Southeast. The market fields an average of 150 vendors per week, and over 400 unique vendors throughout the year!

Soda City Market is Columbia’s weekly Main Street event inspired by traditional European street markets. We are open every Saturday morning 9 a.m. –1 p.m., year-round, rain or shine!

Find everything you need to nourish your brain, body, and belly—and help establish Columbia 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.

Soda City Reviews

“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”

“It’s a fantastic way to start your Saturday! A ton of quirky vendors, lots of food options to please any palate, and a wonderful place to meet friends and show them the town. Three blocks of fun!”
