North Market is a public market located in Columbus, right across the street from the convention center and super convenient if you’re over at Origins Game Fair. The market is home to more than 30 merchants, both restaurants and shopping, including produce, meat, seafood, locally roasted coffee, baked goods, cheeses, flowers, and other handmade food items. Once we visited North Market, we went there for every meal while we were at the convention! Here are the highlights!
Delicious falafel sandwich from Firdous Express.
Pulled pork nachos from Holy Smoke BBQ.
Pierogis with mashed potatoes and Polish coleslaw from Hubert’s Polish Kitchen. I’m not sure what made the coleslaw Polish coleslaw, but it was tasty!
It was difficult to choose what to have at Pastaria. From the mounds and mounds of homemade fresh pasta and sauces to the huge selection of sandwiches. We went with sandwiches because it was a bit more convenient, but I regret not trying the pasta!
Cheesy pretzel from Brezel.
Blueberry lemon and butterscotch donuts from Destination Donuts. These donuts were somewhat odd. The dough was incredibly rich and heavy (we were full for hours and hours). I’m glad we tried them, but I prefer donuts from Dimo’s or The Looney Baker.
A sundae from famous Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. We wanted to go back for a second time, but the line was INSANE.
In addition to this fabulous almond croissant from Pistacia Vera, we also tried their French macarons.
And bar far and above, my favorite eats at North Market were the Belgium waffles from Taste of Belgium. This was the one place that I wanted to pick-up and bring back home with me to Ann Arbor. I don’t remember how many times I ate there, three maybe? I know I had waffles twice in one day. So, so good! I wish I had one right now.
