We went on a Saturday, mainly for the Amish market. The meats I thought were pricey. The baked goods are where it’s at. We left with quite a few things from there. The people are the sweetest and most helpful. We then decided to walk around the other areas. This place is a typical flea market. Inside was clean but we did not use the restrooms. Outside, you have made in China, fell off the back of a truck type goods. Strange things, strange people ect. Everyone selling basically the same things...over and over. Treasures are supposedly found on Thursday and Sunday here. Shoppers were happily walking the aisles getting their goods and bargains. Simply Just not for me. The food vendors looked pretty good and reasonably priced. While the Amish market is the gem here for me, it was concerning the lack of social distancing by shoppers and the masks the workers there were wearing. They didn’t have the bottom secure, like what’s the point of that? There was no crowd control and it was getting packed as we were leaving. Overall it’s worth a look, it’s all a personal preference type of thing. It’s either for you or not. I’d go back for the Amish market but that’s about it.

we live east of the market and were passing by on our way home from a trip to PA. Let's support the locals! So we stopped and popped in to the Market. Must say I want to go back again real soon for an outing of shopping! I DID grabbed 2 very large pumpkins AND a great basket of apples (making that pie!) . When I do get back there I plan to have a nice meal at the Amish Market - looked and smelled SO GOOD! This whole place will take a half a day to shop - everyone leaves carrying a bag! Check it out!

The market was jammed with people on their "off day - Thursday". That is a good thing if you enjoy the energy of a flea market and enjoyment that dealers are actually making money. After all, we should hope they do well in order for them to return year-after-year. My concern is that there aren't the controls to prevent a regrettable visit to this great flea market. I would have expected that the dealers and customers would wear their face coverings and respect social distancing. I should have taken pictures because it was a scary experience, both the customers and dealers appeared to disregard this health control measure. I called the Columbus Farmers Market phone number and they immediately hung up when I started to explain the lack of discipline in following health guidelines. If you are concerned about the lack of controls...I strongly suggest that you look elsewhere for treasures and bargains until this health situation is in better controlled. I LOVE this flea market and feel awful that I write a Negative review but I am concerned.

Go elsewhere unless you want to get or give Covid-19 This is about the outside market...after going there I didn't have the courage to go to the inside shops. I was told that the Amish Market was OK. No social distancing Large number people (including dealers) no masks People bumping into one another it was so crowded No spacial separating of tables despite open areas available for separation. Tried to phone my complaint to their main phone number and after a couple of words they hung up. I pray you stay away.

I really like venturing over to this farmer's market, as it's robust and you can get steals on different food products, but after visiting this summer, I won't go back again. We stayed all of 20 minutes on this visit. We made one walk through the Amish market to realize that there was no social distancing, and in, generally very poor practices related to COVID-19 infection prevention. The produce row was much better though it was still densely packed. I will stick to the farmers markets that may not offer quite the same bargains but where I don't have as high a risk of being doused in the 'rona.
