The Trolley District is one of the most exciting developments happening in Columbus right now, and the East Market is all set to be the star.
Located on the corner of Oak Street and Kelton Avenue, East Market is a massive space that will offer a variety of vendors, a restaurant, and event space, and even a basement speakeasy.
The 40,000 square foot market has announced nearly half of the vendors, with more announcements coming soon. One of the first vendors announced was The Butcher & Grocer, a butcher shop that started in Grandview. They’ll add a much-needed grocery option for the neighborhood, but they won’t be alone. Other announced vendors include:
Creole2Go: Authentic New Orleans cuisine
Fourteen Twenty Nine: A bakery offering an assortment of brownies, cookies, cakes, and coffee.
Macho Taco: Greek and Mexican cuisine
Pitabilities: Mediterranean-American street food
KOSŌ: Korean fast-casual
Yellow Brick: Pizza
The Plant Gays: Shop offering indoor house plants, fresh flowers, home accessories, furniture, and more.
The Trolley District is a 3-acre site in the Franklin Park neighborhood. The buildings were originally constructed between 1882 and 1920 and they were a central hub for the electric trolley system here in Columbus.
Construction has been underway at East Market for a while now and the doors are expected to open to the public before the end of the year.
