“Like a bagel with cream cheese, I believe North Market and Block’s Bagels are a perfect pairing,” said owner Jeremy Fox. “We share similar core values and purpose, bringing community together through tradition, sustainability, and excellence. We are very happy to soon be able to call North Market home and look forward to expanding the new version of Block’s Bagels.”
Fox says the Block’s Bagels at North Market will offer a full range of classic deli sandwiches, house made chicken, tuna, and egg salad; traditional deli sides such as dill potato salad, green apple slaw, and pickles; classic staples offered in the best New York delis: potato knishes, potato latkes, matzah ball soup; and everyone’s favorite: black and white cookies.
“Since 1967, Block’s has been and continues to be the most proper bagel and delicatessen in not just the Central Ohio area, but I would argue the entire Midwest,” said North Market Executive Director Rick Harrison Wolfe. “Block’s belongs in North Market and we welcome this iconic institution.”
Block’s Bagels is slated to begin construction at the vacant stall next to Flavors of India and across from Destination Donuts in the coming weeks. Block’s Bagels expects to launch full time at North Market this Spring.
