Welcome to The Pearl Market at the Statehouse!

The Pearl Market is thriving as it opens its 26th season on Friday, May 25. The market is moving to the historic Ohio Statehouse temporarily during the Rhodes State Office Tower renovation. All season long, you’ll find local foods and handcrafted items downtown on the north plaza of Statehouse. The market runs Tuesdays and Fridays from 10:30 am – 2:00 pm through October 12.

Look to our farmers for produce ranging from berries and asparagus early in the season to corn and apples later. Visit our merchants for baked goods like doughnuts, brownies, cookies, pies and bread. Pick up jewelry, clothing and handmade items from one of our artisans. Grab a cup of coffee or lunch from one of our food trucks. And don’t forget Fido! You can find homemade dog treats at Pearl Market, too.

“We have a great season in store,” said Market Manager Dustin Speakman. “Pearl Market has doubled the number of farmers, offering twice the amount of fresh produce. In addition, shoppers will find delicious cooking demonstrations from Graze using fresh local ingredients as well as simple, tasty recipes you can prepare at home.”


Get prepared for the 2018 Pearl Market

This week, you can grab one of our new market bags by stopping either Credit Union of Ohio at 152 E. Broad St., or Heartland Bank at 101 S. High St. These market sponsors will give out bags until supplies run out.

If you don’t get there this week, you can always check with farmers at the market, who will be distributing the bags to customers. You’ll love this year’s fun and whimsical bag design promoting our new location to the Ohio Statehouse.
