Market to Market Bicycle Ride

Columbus, OH

The North Market, The Hills Market, Columbus, OH

Saturday, October 13, 2012 9am – 1pm

The 1939 film The Wizard of Oz is the inspiration for the newest Market to Market, the event created by The North Market and The Hills Market to celebrate the bicycle and locally created foodstuffs.  Participants have the option of starting at either market to fuel up with breakfast before embarking on the 13-mile adventure to the market at the other end of the bike trail. Participants who arrive at their destination market will be rewarded with a scoop of Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream and a drawstring backpack filled with coupons and goodies from local food and arts purveyors.  

The Hills Market will be offering Ohio Market Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. featuring a decadent day of samples of some of their favorite Ohio producers. Meanwhile, at the opposite end of the Olentangy trail, the North Market will be celebrating its annual Harvest Festival with autumn produce, live music, and apple and pumpkin pie baking contests.
