Live locally.

Be sure to check in with Arts In Motion this week.

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

Columbia City Farmers Market

For the Last market day of the season…

  • Kids Tent: decorate gourds and twist vines and flowers into autumnal crowns
  • Music: dreamy ballads by Pasquale Santos

Last chance to stock up on the most valuable food in town, right in your neighborhood…peppers, melons, wild mushrooms, cheese, fresh hen eggs, fish, chicken, beef, potatoes, apples (oh, the apples!!) and for a last day treat: St. Jude Tuna!

Thanks for another great season Columbia City!
