In the past few years since its inception, Soda City Market has made a name for itself around town, and for Columbia across the state. This producer-only market is part food truck, part street shopping, part farmer’s market. But this popular market isn’t the only farmer’s market in town. Thanks to the organic and fresh food movement farmer’s markets can be found across all the different districts in our region.
