Columbia's downtown street market - open every Saturday morning year-round, rain or shine. Free parking throughout Columbia on the weekends (no matter what you see on signs and stickers) including the Cannon Garage on Taylor Street between Main Street and Sumter Street. Great way to spend your morning -- and if you're from out of town a perfect way to see our city as the creative class, international, and bustling community we are!

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!

Sunflowwer - Thank you for the lovely review! Everyone is in agreement that when it becomes elbow-to-elbow it's time to expand another block. Just think, it's regularly what you experienced and we only expanded to a third block this year! The diverse, local, and unique...More

Wonderful outdoor market. Artwork, crafts, food items, live music, it's a blast! Native flavored honey, oil paintings, clothing, plants/floral. Something for everyone. Main Street has lots of excellent restaurants, too!

Fun to visit now and then with friends. Some organic and local foods but a lot of food trucks and crafts so I don't think to go there as a "farmers" market. Some places I recommend...the avocado toast place, the sourdough cinnamon rolls, the citrus...More
