Fall Main Street Marketplace is back this Friday
If you have not been in the past or you are just moving in to the neighborhood, the Main Street Marketplace is a weekly occasion not to be missed. Many will remember its occurrence during the summer and may not be aware of its re-emergence in the fall. The market takes place every Friday during September and October at Boyd Plaza in front of the Columbia Museum of Art.
It is open from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and features everything from fresh produce to arts and crafts. You can browse through the jewelry and handbags or pick up an interesting read. This is certainly an attractive way to spend your lunch break and get some fresh air.
City Center Partnership offers a free shuttle service that runs all the way from Gervais to Elmwood and from Assembly to Marion Streets. This is certainly a service to be utilized at other times and the Downtown Hospitality Teams have proven to be extremely helpful. You can reach them during the day at 803-233-0620 or in the evening at 803-309-7758. Feel free to check out City Center Partnership’s website at citycentercolumbia.sc to keep in touch with the downtown area.
While you are in vicinity of the Columbia Museum of Art, be sure to stop in and catch Cleve Gray: Man and Nature before it ends on September 27, 2009. New residents can take advantage of their free passes provided in their lease packets. If they are expired, you can pick up new ones at our leasing office.
