My kids love the ethnic restaurants and the chance to sample different items all at one place. I love the Wasserstrom store for fun kitchen gadgets you can't elsewhere. The location makes it easy to get in and out of after work.

Everything is fresh. It is centrally located with hours that are perfect for the downtown life. Prices are average, but the products are outstanding: fresh flowers, eggs, and fish; rice, stuffed grape leaves; and all the foods from the variety of cultural, culinary cuisine around Columbus that this little world has to offer. Excellent space for eating lunch with many co-workers.

The North Market is a great gathering place in an urban setting. It offers a diverse selection of foods, and locally grown produce, plants, honey, and other goodies. The North Market has been a mainstay in Columbus for about 133 years.

Because I can remember when I was younger my grandfather would take my brather and I to the North Market for doughnuts. I can remember shopping for my first mothers day gift at the North Market, flowers and a loaf of bread. I miss thouse times, but I know I will have many more memories to come when I have children of my own and I take them to the North Market

I have "roots" that go back to the North Market from my Great Grandmother Eitel who came here from Germany in the early 1900's and always shopped there (even when it was at the old location and was called Central Market). Then her neice (my cousin) Thea Weigert came here from Germany as well when I was a 4 month old baby. She shopped there for 50 years nearly EVERY saturday of my life basically. When she was ill and literally on deaths bed, she still wanted to be picked up and go to the North Market for her eggs, meat, bread, cheese, and of course her weekly flowers from Bobby and see the young lady at Bluescreek who she would have adopted if she could. I love the North Market for many reasons, but shopping there brings me to close to 2 people I've lost in my life that meant the world to me. I feel I'm honoring them by carrying on the tradition of wanting to support such a great place. I don't have the disciplined habits they did by being so consistent, but I know when I need to make a meal extra special, that is where I go for the best of the best. Thea may have come here from Germany, but she was a very proud American who knew more about this country than people priviledged to be born here. Great Lady! I know the North Market must miss her too!

The North Market is a urban delight. The farmers on Sunday bring not only the best produce, many of them bring years of knowledge and are more than willing to share. You can get everything you need at the market...fresh produce, farm raised beef and poultry, fresh fish and wonderful wine. What more do you need?
