Moonlight Market at Gay Street

On a few nights a year, one street in downtown Columbus stays open extra late. Bricks-and-mortar shops go mobile and pop-up shops get a home during the Moonlight Market on Gay Street. It's a little bit street fair, a little bit farmers' market, except at night and with more ready-made eats than fresh produce. Expect handmade jewelry, Ohio pride t-shirts, and lots of local goodies. There are food trucks, live music, and neighborhood bar specials too to keep you sustained while shopping. The Moonlight Market is held on the second Saturday of each month between April and October, so winter visitors are out of luck. Check the website for current dates and hope for no rain.
