The Columbus Country Market is held on the last Saturday every month from March through November.

Hours are 9 am to 1 pm and it’s located on the Historic Courthouse Square at the corner of Walnut (Highway 90) and Travis Street in downtown Columbus, Texas.

Launched in 2014 and still run today by a group of community volunteers with support from the Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau, the market promotes healthy choices while supporting local farmers, gardeners, cooks, bakers, craftspeople and other artisans.

Vendors sell everything from breakfast tacos, tamales, hot coffee and fresh produce including berries, greens, carrots, beets, squash, onions, tomatoes and herbs, to homemade baked goods like pies, breads and cakes, to fresh gulf shrimp, local farm raised beef and eggs, jewelry, crafts, plants, jams, jellies, local olive oil, local honey, handmade soaps, homemade soups, yummy Filipino egg rolls and lots more.

Visitors may enter a monthly drawing for $50 in Country Market Merchandise Certificates.  It’s free to enter.  One new winner is chosen each month.
