Columbia Citizens' WikLi


your Wikli-fix: down-home Americana

The more things change, the more they slake our nostalgia. We've got roots music, block parties, a nationally recognized farmers market, and more.


Live locally.

  • Sunday the Cinema shows Vacation for free,
  • check out Tuesday's Night Out block parties,
  • and there's our usual, fabulous summer fare of farmers market, bike day, and civic engagement opportunities.

You can post a calendar event — here's how.

Columbia City Farmers Market

Great news for Columbia City! Our very own market was voted one of the nation's top ten farmers markets for tourists to get a real feel for the land they're visiting. Check it out on CNN.

This week at the market… Chef Demo by Bobby Laing of Island Soul Restaurant. And welcome to a new vendor: Toboton Creek Farm — Linda sells halal goat meat and will be bringing much needed eggs to market for the rest of the season.

Daily Bread Yoga

Practice hatha yoga in a community to be nourished physically, mentally, and spiritually. This practice is led by Pastor Rachel Bass-Guennewig and is part of the growing community of faith at the Columbia City New Start of Bethlehem Lutheran Church (ELCA). You do not have to be Lutheran or of any particular religion to practice with us. Everyone is welcome. Rachel is a registered yoga instructor with Yoga Alliance (RYT200) and has offered a yoga practice in previous congregations where she's served.

Daily Bread Yoga will be one hour long, meeting Mondays at 9am, Wednesdays at noon, and Fridays at 5pm.

Still Lives Exhibit at WA Care Center

A unique collaboration between a visual artist and a nursing home has resulted in a provocative series of video portraitures about aging, time, image, memory, and relationships. Media artist Susie J Lee began the Still Lives project in April with residents of Washington Care Center (WCC), a nursing and long-term care facility in Southeast Seattle, to explore questions about what we hold onto and what we let go over the passage of time. A public reception will be held on Monday, August 9 from 2 – 4pm in the lobby of Washington Care Center, 2821 S Walden St.
