Best Local Food Market: North Market

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

The North Market is one of the first places proud Columbusites take their visiting foodie friends to impress them with our city's shopping and culinary sophistication. From the terrific seasonal fruits and veggies of The Greener Grocer to Bluescreek's pork, beef and lamb (raised on a Marysville farm) to the slew of fresh, Ohio-raised meats sold by North Market Poultry and Game to world-class chocolates (Pure Imagination), ice creams (Jeni's), breads (Omega) and cheeses (Curds and Whey) to an array of international-flavored eateries, this wonderful place has it all.

Runners-up: Carfagna's, Weiland's Gourmet Market
