Whether you love food or downtown Cbus (or both!) we want your help at the market!
Volunteer or Donate
Whatever you have to offer, we want your enthusiasm at the market! We always need help organizing vendors, giving directions, or sorting leftover food. Special programs available for schools and groups.

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.

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!
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.
