Market Wednesday neighbor, Meza, 48 N. State, is just steps away from the market. Meza is a wine shop and owners Jason and Tatjana Brown have a passion for great wines, including a nice selection of Ohio wines.  Each Wednesday, during market hours, Meza features a specially-priced tasting (usually a wine or a sangria recipe) and Tatjana and the Meza staff are happy to help you with wine pairings for your meals and your market fare.

See you at the market!
