This little piggy went to the market

Stop by Columbia’s Greenmarket on your way to class for tasty fresh fruit, vegetables, baked goods, and everything else delicious. The Greenmarket is every Thursday and Sunday—enjoy!

A brief spate of warm weather will bring in the last of the summer produce, and ripens the produce of fall. Come by the info table to see our Eat A Rainbow feature, get new recipes, purchase tokens, or just say hi! Fragrant grapes are available at Wager’s for just a few more weeks, while voluptuous squashes are just beginning. Your fall table has never been so beautiful and delicious!

Columbia market is open year-round on Sundays and Thursdays and accepts credit, debit, and EBT. Greenmarket shoppers using WIC Vegetable and Fruit checks receive additional Greenmarket Bucks to spend for fresh fruits and vegetables at the market. For those with EBT, Health Bucks are available! $2 for every $5 you spend on your EBT card from now until November 15.

We collect food scraps for compost & textiles for recycling from 8am to 3pm on Thursdays and on Sundays food scraps for compost from 8am to 1pm, and textiles for recycling from 8am to 3pm Forget to bring a shopping bag with you to the market? Never fear! Visit the Market Information table and find a reusable bag at the Take a Bag/Leave a Bag collection.
