Inside 43215: Pearl Market Planning

Downtown Columbus

Polar vortex...pffft. Who woulda ever thought any of us would have known what this meant? Well, we do, and we're over it.

Warm, sunny Tuesdays and Fridays spent in Pearl Market seem distant at best. But we've been planning for 2014 already, and we want to know what you want to see, taste and buy. We captured a few slides to jog your memory, and one reader will win some lunch on us.

Every year, market organizers try to find the right merchant mix for Pearl Market that will please downtown workers, support local businesses, and provide a test market for entrepreneurs hoping to call downtown home.

"More food" is always a popular request. We try to accommodate that, but we also want you to grab a bite at the local brick and mortars - great eats surround Pearl Market.

What else do you want to see in Pearl Market? What kinds of things do you buy now in the Market? What would keep you coming back Tuesday and Friday? How can we make the experience even better? What do you like or not like? What needs improvement?

You get the point.

Leave a comment about Pearl Market, and answer one of the above questions. You will be entered to win lunch at one of the restaurants that borders the Market.

Think spring.
