    Monthly street fair Moonlight Market to bring eclectic vendors to sidewalks of Gay Street
    By Katie Lianez
    Published: Wednesday, April 10, 2013

    The spring weather is (seemingly) here to stay just in time for downtown’s newest nightlife offering. The Moonlight Market is slated to kick off its April-September run on Gay Street Saturday and is set to continue on the second Saturday of each month. The market features several local vendors, giving the public options for eating, shopping and interacting.

    The Gay Street Moonlight Market is tomorrow! Many brick-and-mortar stores will be open all day while 50+ sidewalk vendors (see list earlier in this thread) will join from 6p-11p. Visit http://www.moonlightmarketcolumbus.com for more details.

    Parking is no challenge on Gay St.! The garage at 4th and Elm (between the Neighborhood Launch condos and Telhio) will be set for $1/hour!

    We had a great time tonight. Lots of vendors that I haven’t seen at other events and there was a really good crowd there early (7ish). Kudos to all the organizers. Another step for the rebirth of downtown.

    Just got home a few minutes ago and had an absolute great time. We were all thrilled with the turnout considering it was our first event and that the weather was a little on the chilly side. All of the vendors and the brick-and-mortars I spoke to were pleased with the amount of foot traffic and business that they did. Was happy to see a lot of the vendors stick around all the way to 11pm as well. Hopefully we can push the crowds to continue to midnight as the weather gets warmer, though I think some were selling out of product and closing up early regardless.

    See you all again for this on May 11th!

    Vendors-don’t forget to bring some lanterns! It was a great event, and nice to be able to get to some of the businesses we can’t hit during regular business hours (thomas mason).

    The first ever Moonlight Market event was held last night on Gay Street in Downtown Columbus, and despite chilly weather, attendees turned out to stroll, shop, drink, dine and celebrate the evening under the stars. This new monthly retail bazaar takes place every Second Saturday and features special late night hours for local brick-and-mortar businesses as well many additional street vendors that line the sidewalks.

    Once again, I just want to give a shout out to all involved with making this happen. The guys at Civitas Now played a huge role in vendor setup: Jay Schmidt, Matt Barnes and Jacob Taylor. The team at Cement Marketing did all of the website material: Alison Momot and Alaina Shearer. Jason Sudy of Side Street Planning helped with the site plan for vendor arrangement and permitting with the City of Columbus. Natalee Brown of Little Ticket Design developed the logo and handled flyers, posters and other print material design. Chad McCoury of J. Gumbo’s was a huge co-organizer of the entire event and handled communication with all brick-and-mortar businesses. And of course a big shout out to the entire Capital Crossroads SID team including Cleve Ricksecker, Adam Schroeder, Kacey Brankamp and Melissa Fast for their knowledge and assistance on Downtown event planning, insurance policies, waivers, and all other sorts of technical type stuff.

    The event seemed to exceed everyone’s expectations, and we’ll spend the next week surveying the participants to find out how we can make next month’s event better. Can’t wait! ;)

    What would be the vendor fee if I may ask? My teenager does jewelry, of a different type than what I saw at the Market, and was wondering If we could get a booth. She has done Grandview Hop before. Thanks!

    They posted this somewhere but it is $10 per event. Here are the details:

    I think it is neat that she is already involved in sales.
