This crowded public market is home to at least 30 independently-owned food counters, which makes it a great place to eat and shop with a group. While your friend wanders off for a slice of pizza or giant Bavarian pretzel, you can get in line for Himalayan dumplings at Momo Ghar or a Somali spread from Hoyo’s Kitchen. Reconvene at a table outside or upstairs, then end your meal with cones of Brambleberry Crisp or Salty Caramel at the original Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream. Before you leave, you might as well stock up on locally made olive oil, coffee beans, a few Ohio cheeses and artisan fruit preserves from Black Radish Creamery, or a bag of cinnamon pecans from the American Nut Company. The downtown location has been around for nearly 150 years, and is an easy walk from the convention center.
