Soda City

Soda City is Columbia’s Main Street market focused on your brain, body and belly! We’re open every Saturday morning 9AM – 1PM, year-round, rain or shine!

Whether you’re shopping for a one-of-kind gift, picking-up this week’s groceries, or spending the morning with family and friends, you’ll find a refreshing mix of local and regional food and craft vendors at Soda City — and if you’re from out of town, visit us on Main Street and see Columbia as the creative class, international, and bustling community we are!

Where’d the name Soda City come from? Between being nicknamed “Cola” and previously having a few soda bottling plants downtown “back in the day,” Soda City emerged as a moniker for our town.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.

The Y’s CrossFit program is designed to help people at all levels of fitness achieve their goals in a welcoming, supportive environment. Highlights include group-based classes led by certified instructors, a cycling studio for cross-training, and free child care. And Y members who sign up for CrossFit have full access to all Y fitness facilities, including five indoor pools for year-round triathalon training.
Donors make it possible
The Ferguson Family Y is opening thanks to a lead gift from Jack and Carolyn Ferguson. Other major donors include the Biltmore Lake Charitable Fund, Joanne and Phil Roudebush, Pulliam Properties, and Southeastern Container. 
The generosity of the people of Hominy Valley for this project is strengthening the heart of community,” Vest said. “And as community support grows, so will the Y.”
