There are even street performers to keep the crowds entertained. If you happen to visit here, check out the Pike Place Fish Market that is famous for its “flying fish”. Pike Place Market is open daily.

This market is so popular that visitors often have difficulties finding a place to park. Despite this, it’s worth the inconvenience as there are so many one of a kind vendors here. Established in 1876, this is the only true public market that remains in Columbus. There are over 30 different merchants that feature quality food items like grass-fed beef, organic produce and fresh baked goods. There are a wide variety of specialty items like one of a kind gifts and products from local artisans. North Market is open every day.
