The North Market provides an exciting and friendly environment to attract tourists and shoppers and has become an important anchor between the Arena District and the Short North. The warehouse feel is consistent with the neighborhood. Walls, floors and the roof were removed to open up the space. Merchant storage for dry goods and perishables is in the basement with refrigeration compressors located outside to alleviate heat gain and noise within the open space of the building. Effective circulation around merchant locations gives the ability to see above and around each vendor location. Seasonally an outdoor farmers market occupies exterior space.

The North Market has become more than just somewhere to do some quick shopping—it’s a destination, regularly drawing in visitors from far and wide in addition to residents of Columbus’ nearby revitalized neighborhoods.
