Downtown Matters: Seeking Pearl Market Sponsors


Downtown Matters Newsletter


Downtown Columbus

Pearl Market will soon seek sponsorships for the 2013 Market season. The very popular urban market operates twice weekly from May through October. While the bulk of the funding for Pearl Market comes from Capital Crossroads SID, this year saw the launch of a new sponsorship program to help defray costs.

Why invest in Pearl Market? The Market offers fresh, local produce and access to unique goods to shoppers, while providing a retail “incubator” for the downtown market. A number of businesses have been launched from Pearl Market tents to brick and mortar storefronts. In addition, the Market offers a bit of “retail therapy” for downtown workers, residents and visitors.

A number of sponsorship opportunities are available at levels ranging from $500 to $4,000. Each sponsorship level has a range of perks associated including logo placements, free advertising and more. Customized sponsorship packages are also available. You can contact Adam Schroeder, Market Manager at for more information.
