My favorite place in Columbus. So many food choices & the Spice place inside is excellent, too :-) First floor has food and goods for sale and on the second floor you can seat yourself. There is outdoor seating as well. Always a nice place to stop for lunch.

The North Market has been a family favorite for years. Do the kiddos want pizza, grandma wants Italian, hubby is craving Indian & you want Vietnamese? Not a problem at North Market! Seriously, throw in Polish, Greek, BBQ, seafood...vegan, vegetarian options...desserts, you name it & it's probably available. You basically pick out your meals from whichever merchant pleases your fancy,... More

The North Market began as a Farmer's Market, but it has grown into a cultural experience. The location is one short block from the convention center and provides a perfect break for convention and conference attendees. Japanese, Mexican, Polish, Indian, Italian, Vietnamese, and French choices are available. In addition to full meals are glorious snacks of French pastries, a bread... More

In Columbus for a convention and accidentally parked here. This is an great area with wonderful food and within walking distance to the convention center. We ate here everyday for lunch when in the area! They also have the best coffee downtown with friendly service. Can't wait to go back!

My friends and I were initially going to have lunch at a restaurant nearby which was inconveniently closed, and since I haven't been to North Market yet, we decided to eat there instead. It turned out to be more than what I expected it to be although I had a mental image of a much larger place than it was.... More

This is such a fun market to go to - lots of unique food items, shops and the overall experience was just fun. We went as part of our annual girls shopping weekend and were there for lunch. There is SO much to pick from - my sister had pierogies and other Polish food. Others had pizza/Italian, sandwiches, waffles, etc.... More

Quality food and shopping. The market has 30+ vendors and eateries selling flowers, teas, spices, utensils, desserts, beverages, etc. I purchased spices, tea/coffee, and lunch. A great place to stop and pick up a few groceries or spend some time and have lunch. We had lunch at Lan Viet. The noodle soup with beef or chicken was wonderfully flavored and... More

So good on a cold Columbus day. I also bought spices and a cast iron skillet, so there is plenty of variety of stalls in this place. I took... More

Good place for a mixed lunch. You can spend all afternoon here. Free parking if you purchase something from 1 vendor (ask them to validate your parking). Jeni's ice cream is great. Lots of things to sample and smell. Upstairs dinning area. Very expensive yuppie type market but quality abounds. Can be elbow to elbow during peak times.......
