Host an Event

Events at the North Market provide the unique opportunity to showcase a Columbus culinary staple while offering space for other simultaneous activities. There are a variety of spaces available within the two-story, 19th century restored brick warehouse at our North Market Downtown and more private event spaces available at our North Market Bridge Park opening in Spring 2020.

North Market Downtown

The interior ground floor, we call the Market House, features 30+ individual, local merchant spaces, and an open center area up to the roof. The second floor features a wraparound Mezzanine level with seating and a beautiful overhead view of the merchant space. Outdoors, there is a Farmers’ Market Pavilion and Patio with picnic bench seating. As a whole, the North Market provides a truly authentic Columbus experience.

Please note, at this time we can only accommodate private events with a start time of 5:00pm or later.
