As the name implies, North Market provides an opportunity to browse meat or fish markets, eat at a number of delicatessens or grab some dessert of ice cream, cookies or candies. Be sure to stop for a taste of some very unusual flavors of ice cream at Jeni's. even a small portion will satisfy your sweet tooth with flavors like... More

OK. We ate pierogi, stuffed cabbage and kielbasa at Huberts. Had ice cream at Jen's and brownies from the artisan baker, capped off with coffee. All excellent. But, we barely scratched the surface. So much to choose from and each vendor looks more inviting than the last. Easy and inexpensive parking too, on Vine Street.

As a foodie I was delighted our hotel was near the North Market and made a bee-line there the first night since I knew it closed relatively early. Had a good dinner, picked up some fruit, but no time to look around before closing. Unfortunately was unable to revisit over the weekend as hoped because there are VERY limited hours... More

North Market is great to have in Columbus - a nice variety of food services within for lunch or snacks, and a great place to buy specialty cheeses and treats to take away, or bring home. Some vendors have been here for years whereas others are newcomers or short-timers, and quality may vary at some eateries. But the place itself... More

Whether you are here for the freshest fish in town, or terrific meats and vegetables, this indoors market has it all. The little restaurants serve up a great array of choices for lunch, and you can find somewhere to sit on a bad day. There are wines, cheeses, fresh breads, and desserts to tempt you, and the vendors have always... More

Lots of great shops and variety. You can get fresh foods and take it upstairs to eat and over look the shopping. Parking is a bit challenging but if you drive around a little you can find some. It was a rainy and cool day so not all the spots outside were full. Even with that inside has plenty to... More

Actually discovered the North Market because I was in town for a conference and looking for a Jeni's nearby. There are many different food vendors in the market. I ate at the market every day I was in town. The crepe at Taste of Belgium was my breakfast the first day. It was excellent, and my fellow diners said that... More

Lots of local, one place, only food vendors. Excellent food's. Lots to see do not miss! Bring cash, as a lot of the vendors require a minimum if you choose to use your credit card. Also parking will cost you here so have some cash ready. But do not miss!

Great selection of vendors including huge pretzels (jalapeno cheese, rosemary - both yummy), artisan breads, cheeses, salsas, fancy French pastries.... and much more. Lots of great booths for picking up a quick lunch ranging from Polish to Indian to Italian. And a Jeni's ice cream booth with amazing flavors of delicious ice cream. Many vendors, including Jenni's, provide samples before... More

My wife and I passed through Columbus on an overnight stay and went to the market early morning Saturday specifically to sample Destination Donuts's vegan offerings. We tried a couple flavors and especially liked the sprinkles. Be sure to show up early because she sells out fast! We also came across Jeni's ice cream while exploring the market and tried... More
