Pearl & Gay St Corridor

Gay St and Pearl Alley have long been the home of small business in Columbus. Casual international cuisines, dive-y pubs, and fine dining all meet in this vibrant downtown area.
Learn more about the nearby attractions and amenities!


Going strong for 29 years, the market is possible only with the help of our sponsors. With thousands of visits per week, we’re a meeting place for all the divergent people flowing through downtown.
Thank you to our amazing partners!

Shop Local

Resilient, healthy communities are ones where small independent businesses can grow. Every time you buy food or products made by a fellow Ohioan, you’re putting 3x more of your money back into the local economy that supports jobs, schools, and your neighbors. 


Pearl Market is run by the 501(c)3 designated Capital Crossroads – Special Improvement District.

The “Cap Crossroads SID” supports the development of a safe, clean, attractive, unique and easily accessible downtown which serves as the foundation of business, residential, cultural and entertainment centers of the region.  We see Columbus as one of the premier downtowns in the nation.

You’ll see our Safety Ambassadors on their bike patrols, the Clean Team watering flower beds, and Homeless Outreach officers connecting those in need with food, health, and housing resources. And that’s just the surface! Find out more about the services the “SID” provides by clicking below.
