Soda City Market

The Soda City Market in Columbia, South Carolina is a regular Saturday event. Vendors set up tents along Main Street selling handmade products for your body, mind, and soul. There are artists of several crafts, culinary geniuses, small farmers, and so many more. Main Street is full of delicious restaurants and unique little stores, so the Saturday shopping doesn’t have to stop after the market! These photos were taken February 18th on a comfortable, overcast day.
