Ohio Made Holiday Market

Thank You For Shopping Local

The Ohio Made Holiday Market thanks you for your dedication to shopping local! This past Saturday 5-6 THOUSAND of you came out to support 100 Ohio small business owners! You shattered our attendance goals! Your purchases MAKE A DIFFERENCE! You helped to pay for adoptions, dog surgeries, kids Christmases, a mom to be able to stay home to raise her baby, weddings, rent/mortgage payments, and SO much more.

This year you spent $2000 on raffle tickets-another new record set for Ohio Made Holiday Market! That money goes RIGHT BACK INTO THE COMMUNITY! The Reeb Avenue Center receives every penny of that $2000. We can’t wait to deliver the check!

With each event,OMM finds new ways to improve your shopping experience. This year at our new home, the Hollywood Casino Event Center, we provided unlimited free parking, longer operating hours, 3 hours of ticketed VIP shopping, and MORE VENDORS! Next year we will use your feedback to improve AGAIN! Did anyone notice the fire marshall didn’t attend this year? Another improvement! The casino’s risk management team met with the fire marshall in advance and planned out every detail to avoid overcrowding. If you waited in line outside the event, this was for your safety. Most waited 20 minutes and were thrilled with what they found inside! A huge thank you to the Hollywood Casino Staff for working hard to ensure safety and to run our best event to date!

Thank you to the OMM volunteers that helped ensure the event ran smoothly. They greeted you at the door, watched booths for vendor breaks, and sold the $2000 worth of raffle tickets that benefit the Reeb Avenue Center. They are simply amazing to donate their personal time to support small businesses in Ohio!

Thank you to our vendors for their commitment to their craft. Without the #OhioMadeMarketFamily we would not be able to host incredible events. We showed you their unique, quality products on our social media pages and you could not wait to buy them! We asked them to be fully stocked with great products and they delivered!

Thank you to Zassy‚Äôs Treasures for beautifully setting up our Santa Lounge. Make sure to visit Zassy’s & Friends Christmas show November 24 – 25 at the Via Vecchia Winery.

Thank you to jolly old St. Nick for greeting our crowds and taking photos with our shoppers all day.

Thank you to DJ Mikol G for always making our events fun and upbeat.

Thank you to Alissa Henry and the staff of Good Day Columbus for supporting the shop local movement. Your special attention to Ohio Made products and small businesses is essential to our growth and success. We cannot draw awareness to the importance of shopping local without the media! Thank you for choosing to feature our event and vendors!

We would love to see your photos. Please share using @OhioMadeMarket and #OhioMadeMarket.
