NoMa Admin posted on January 17, 2014 09:04
Just a little over one month since North Market announced the opening of the extremely popular German Village boutique pastry shop Pistacia Vera, the Market is announcing yet another German Village hot spot or as some say “institution” is coming to North Market. Katzinger’s Delicatessen is opening its second location, Katzinger’s Little Deli, its first in its nearly 30-year history.
The deli, scheduled to open in April of 2014, will be located at the southwest end of the North Market across from the other Food Network favorite, Omega Artisan Baking.January 17, 2014 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #541780

It’s been quite a year for Katzinger’s Deli, the nearly 30 year old, Columbus-based deli that’s been serving up some of the best meats and cheeses in the city since its opening. They recently launched Katzingersgrocery.com, a one-stop site where visitors can purchase much of the same groceries they can at the store, and now, they open their second location in the historic North Market.

After several years of quiet anticipation, the North Market Bell Tower is finally being erected. The original Market quarters, located at 29 Spruce Street, housed the bell years ago when it was rung twice a day to signal the start and end of a commercial day.

North Market Adds Bar with The Barrel & Bottle Expansion
September 11, 2014 2:53 pm – Walker Evans
Buying beer and wine at the North Market has long been a staple grocery item, but you’ve never been allowed to drink it on site… until now. The owners of The Barrel & Bottle beer-and-wine boutique have just completed an expansion within the market, which includes a new seating area that allows for on-site consumption of beer, wine and cocktails.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — It took Columbus’ restored North Market about a decade to become an overnight success, its executive director says. North Market executive director Rick Harrison Wolfe’s counterpart at the Pittsburgh Public Market, which reopened in a new location a year ago, doesn’t want to wait that long.

Greener Grocer Closing at North Market
December 10, 2014 4:21 pm – Walker Evans
The North Market will be losing a very important retailer at the end of the year when the Greener Grocer closes after six years in business. The business provides the market with much of its fresh produce and grocery items, and is located very prominently inside the main entrance of the building. Thankfully, it sounds like there won’t be much of an absence in produce at the North Market for long.

The city is looking to reduce its funding for upkeep of North Market.January 11, 2015 6:08 pm at 6:08 pm #1058613
The city is looking to reduce its funding for upkeep of North Market.
I saw the Dispatch article earlier today. Just for clarification (I served on the Board of Directors for the North Market from Dec 2007 – Dec 2013), the City of Columbus ended annual financial contributions to the North Market years ago. So the “reduce support” language sounded a little misleading. The city of Columbus owns the property and leases the building and land to the nonprofit development authority that manages it. That lease has been $1/year for the past 20 years, in order to help the organization grow. So that lease agreement is what’s coming to an end, and will increase moving forward.
I also thought it was odd that the Dispatch claimed that the market was “struggling financially in recent years” because of a $6000 budget deficit in 2012 (despite a $350k cash surplus reserve) and a balanced budget in all other recent years. The NMDA is a nonprofit, not a business, so having “flat revenues” doesn’t mean that there’s a struggle. It means that the nonprofit is re-allocating all funding into operations, which is pretty much the core mission of the nonprofit.
2014 was a very transformative year for the North Market. Major building renovations have occurred both inside and out, which were overdue. I imagine that 2015 is going to be a great year for the NM.January 11, 2015 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #1058617
Good ol’ Dispatch.
Thanks for the clarifications, Walker.January 11, 2015 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #1058618
Whether you call it support or subsidy, the city is looking to pull a lot of money from North Market. I’m guessing the 2.2 mil the city put in over the last 2 years and the $2 in rent over 2 years have allowed the significant transformation. I don’t imagine the NM would have been able to have such a transformation without the city. I guess the question is whether or not the transformation is enough to let the NM be more than just operational without the city support, subsidy, improvements (pick your word) or of the city should continue to aid the market to propel it beyond a single transformative yearFebruary 10, 2015 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #1062930
House Bill 37 May Bring More Beer and Wine to the North Market
February 10, 2015 3:38 pm – Walker Evans
The North Market has long been a place where you can buy beer and wine… you just couldn’t drink it there. Last September, the Barrel & Bottle expanded their space to include a small bar area that would change that, allowing on-site consumption for the first time, though keeping it limited to the 1,100 square foot confines of their business space.
State Representatives Michael Stinziano and Mike Duffey want to change that.
