Visited by over one million people yearly, this is one of the nation's top farmer's markets. It has been in operation since 1876, and there are over 35 vendors - butchers, greengrocers, fishmongers and farmers. The bakers are especially loved. You find more than producers here - artists and craftsmen have a place here too. Altogether, the merchants here fall into five categories - Fresh Produce and Flowers, Cookware and Gifts, Fresh Meat and Fish, Bakery and Specialty, and Prepared Foods. The merchants all take great pride in being part of a community promoting local small business. Even if you're not buying anything, this is a great place to people watch and meet the locals. During the growing season, on Saturdays, there is a special farmers market when about 20 producers bring farm fresh produce to sell from 8am onwards.

North Market Reviews & Ratings
I don’t even know where to start with this places..but let’s just say this is a foodie’s HEAVEN! First off parking, they have a parking lot that a pay rate per two hours however, you can get validation from whichever place you choose to dine inside and receive a free hour of parking so that was awesome! They have a cute picnic bench style seating area outside to enjoy your food and/or drinks when the weather is nice. The weather was around 85 so we made sure to take advantage! Now as soon as I walked inside, it’s legitimately a food hall with anything you can choose from: seafood, Thai, American, Baked Goods, Wine/Spirits and so much more. I opted for some seafood and to partake at one of the beers on tap. The salmon burger from The Fish Guys was fresh and the homemade sauce made it that more delicious. For a burger with chips and drink, it was roughly $10! I headed over to the Barrel and Bottle where I was greeted happily by Princess. I was able to sample one of the beers and for a nice size glass it was $6. I was thoroughly pleased with all purchases and just the environment and will come back if I’m ever in Columbus!
I absolutely loved this place. They have a great selection for food options. However, if you park at North Market, please note you NEED to bring your parking slip in to get stamped, or else they will charge you a 10 dollar surcharge... They lose a star for this because, it was not immediately evident that we had to do this.
Th his is a seed splendid place to enjoy cuisine from all over the world. They even have Maryland blue crabs here. All the foods and drinks are artisan crafted so you are only entitled to the best here. The food, drinks, and hospitality are wonderful. This place does get crowded but that's a result of so many great options under one roof.
The North Market it's truly an Eclectic mix of stand-alone shops that offer anything your palate could want. Omega Bakery is simply world class, incredible quality cheeses are available, fresh-squeezed juices from fruits and vegetables, a fantastic array of greeting cards, and the original Jeni's Ice Cream! If that is not enough I don't know what is!
It's a great place to find a vast variety of food; everyone can have what they like and the whole family can spend time together. The place is appealing with a large parking lot (ticket can be validated for a cheaper price), centrally located and very well kept with lots of seating space. I did find the food a bit pricey and not necessarily worth the higher price.
