Best New Store: Celebrate Local

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Not bad for a pop-up, eh? This store opened Oct. 1 at Easton Town Center as an experiment. The shopping complex had experienced success with its parking lot farmers markets in the summer. Easton visitors loved the Ohio-made options for sale, and Celebrate Local became the farmers market without the farmer. Celebrate Local was slated to be open for only a couple of months, but it's been so popular, it will remain open indefinitely (although it might move to a new location). Just another example of how muchColumbus loves Ohio.
