Pop Up Markets Downtown

  • Pearl Market
    • Shop Fresh, Shop

    • Tuesday & Fridays, 10:30am – 2:00pm
    • What’s in Season?
      • If it’s growing in your neighbor’s backyard garden, you can get it (and more) at the Market. Our local farmers can tell you what grows in Ohio and give you tips to try new things – who knew a kohlrabi could be so tasty?
        The first part of the summer nab some asparagus and berries. Zucchinis and tomatoes start in June and never seem to stop, and you’ll find iconic sweet corn later in September and October. Remember to grab a succulent to brighten your office, a spicy Nepali pastry, or homemade soy candle while you’re here!
      • Questions? has all the latest vendors and a database to see if they have what you’re looking for.


  •  Food Truck Food Court
    • Nothing says summer like a little nosh from your favorite food truck.
    • Every Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. May until October
    • Stroll on over to Columbus Commons during your lunch break. Giant Eagle Market District, Cupzilla, Angry Wiener, Mikey’s Late Night Slice, Kinetic, Paddy Wagon, Pitabilities and Mya’s Fried Chicken food trucks line the south end of the park to treat you to lip-smackin’ eats. As if that isn’t enough to choose from, two special guest trucks rotate in the mix on a monthly basis. Choices abound, and you can even grab a taco or two from the Tortilla café.
    • Want some chicken and biscuits or a slice a pizza? Done. How about the meatiest hotdog around or a made-to-order pita? You can even get healthy, gourmet options at Kinetic. Whether you decide to stroll through the gardens or grab a table, it’s all at Columbus Commons on Thursdays. Don’t forget to stop by Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams for a cone before you head back to the salt mines. (It’ll make walking back to the office on those sunny days a little more doable.)
    • Heads up, also make sure to stop by the Columbus Commons beverage tent near the carousel for your drink of choice to wash all that goodness down because the food trucks only focus on great eats.


  • Columbus Commons BREAKFAST Food Court
    Wednesdays, 7:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. May through October
    If you’re feeling generous, grab something for your coworkers. If you’re feeling selfish and want it all for yourself, we won’t tell.
