Shop Local Holiday Guide: North Market
The final two weeks of holiday shopping are upon us! That means that if you still have gifts to buy for friends and loved ones, your time is winding down. In order to assist, we’ve reached out to a wide variety of local shops, stores, and boutiques to find out which of their three most popular “must have” items can still be found on their shelves.
Next we have three suggestions from Mary Martineau, Director of Marketing at the North Market.
“The Greener Grocer gift basket is “Localicious” and sure to please! It includes a large assortment of seasonal and delicious fruit, local honey, local maple syrup, house-made candied nuts, our signature Maple Parsley Vinaigrette, dried fruit, Krema nut butter and a gift certificate to our friend, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams! These fabulous items are presented in a fair trade elephant grass market basket made in Ghana which you, of course, will find helpful for future North Market shopping. A holiday message card is included. Price $89.99″
“CaJohn’s is the most-awarded fiery foods purveyor in the United States. We’re lucky enough to have them based right here in Columbus and luckier still to have easy access to them right here at the North Market. Whether your holiday gift recipients appreciate the fiery burn of his signature and entertainingly-named hot sauces or myriad salsas with options both mellow and mouth-tingling there are plentiful options when shopping at CaJohn’s Flavor and Fire. For around $20 you can put together a three pack gift box with your choice of hot sauces or salsas for your favorite Chile Head or salsa fanatic. Of course, if you want to go bigger and better and create a customized basket, they can handle that too.”
“School of Cooking classes make the perfect gift for your favorite foodie and they are value-priced at $50 each or $125 for 3 classes. From learning the basics of cooking to enjoying authentic ethnic recipes, the North Market’s classes are fun for a wide range of skill levels. If your giftee is more the silent-observer type, sign them up for a trio of Dine Originals Chef Series classes where they can watch and learn from Chefs from Columbus’ most fabulous independent restaurants. They’ll get to interact with outstanding chefs and be rewarded with an amazing meal complete with recipes to recreate the experience at home for friends and family.”
