The Moonlight Market features a diverse mix of brick-and-mortar businesses, pop-up shops and artisan sidewalk vendors that create one of the most unique shopping experiences that you’ll find in Columbus. You’ll find items from hand-made jewelry to vintage t-shirts to specialty foods and everything else in between. Follow the Moonlight Market on social media for the latest on vendors, sales and other shopping updates.


Gay Street is home to some of the city’s best restaurants, and many of them stay open late just for you at the Moonlight Market! So whether you’re in the mood for fine dining, comfort food or just a slice of pizza, you can find it all at the Moonlight Market. And you can follow the Moonlight Market on social media to find out what dinner specials and pop-up restaurants we have in store for you each month.


The Moonlight Market offers a variety of entertainment options. Street musicians are out busking on Gay Street each month, the local bars offer a wide variety of drink specialities and you might even catch sight of a juggling unicyclist, street magicians, guerilla al fresco painters and more. Gay Street is also a short walk from Downtown parks, nightclubs and many other hotspots where you’ll find more entertainment options.


The Moonlight Market is currently seeking an exclusive season sponsor! Your business name would be attached to all of this season’s events, emails to vendors, social media promotions and print materials (flyers, posters and signage) as the exclusive supporting of this community event. 100% of season sponsorship funding goes to supporting the Gay Street Collaborative nonprofit and the Moonlight Market event series.
