About Soda City: Soda City is an event company. The namesake “Soda City Market” is meant to be a microcosm of Columbia. It runs year-round, rain or shine. From Cola, abbreviation first created by the U.S. Postal Service for Columbia, came Soda City. It’s a moniker which has resonated well with locals and has inspired the name of a city shuttle system dubbed Soda Cap Connector. The company logo is a soda cap, in part because of the name [Soda City], but also because Columbia is the capital city of South Carolina. In addition to Soda City Market, Soda City organizes and executes Soda City Adoption Day, Soda City Yard Sale, and various partner programming.
