Press Release:

We can’t help it. Supporting small, independent local businesses is just in our DNA here at the North Market. So not only are we bringing back Artisan Sundays on the first Sunday of every month from May through October, but we’ve added local artisans and crafters on the third Sunday as well! Now you can stock up on homemade, handcrafted gifts and goodies along with local foodstuffs while doing your weekend market shopping.

“We had such a fabulous response from Columbus’ creative community as well as our merchants and customers that it seemed only natural to increase the number of days we incorporate the artisan market into our activities,” said Mary Martineau, Director of Marketing at the North Market. “This way we are able to accommodate more of the individuals who are creating amazingly unique handmade things right here in Columbus.”
