The Market at Rickenbacker Woods is a NEW outdoor shopping experience located on the grounds of the Historic Captain Eddie Rickenbacker House. We will have over 40 vendors selling everything from clothing, home decor, self-care items and bakery treats! There will also be a food truck on site.

How can you help? The market is from 9am - 1pm. Vendors will be arriving to set up starting at 7am. We need about 5 - 10 volunteers from 8:00am - 1:00pm but you do not have to stay the whole time.

Duties will be helping to set up for the event putting up banners/d├ęcor, helping vendors check in with me, offer extra hands to unload (if needed) and find their space and where to park after they unload. They may also need assistance in erecting their pop-up tents.

We will also need help directing visitors to parking and helping click in the amount of visitors that come, and help at our tent assisting in selling tote bags and collecting email addresses for our mailing list.

Mission Statement

The Rickenbacker Wood Foundation strives to ignite the spirit of innovation and perseverance embodied through the lives and legacies of Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker and Granville T. Woods; providing youth access and opportunities to STEAM education while fostering the personal development of families and the community.

Description

The boyhood home of Captain Eddie Rickenbacker, Columbus' own World War I flying ace is one of three national historic landmarks located in the capital city. Granville T. Woods, the inventor of the "electrified 3rd rail" and "electrical couplings" inventions that are still in use today, used to deliver electricity to subway cars, high speed trains, and street trains, was born here in Columbus, Ohio. He was known as the "Black Thomas Edison". Edison who incidentally purchased several patents from Woods. Both of these men through their own personal initiative and perseverance fought against great odds to become successful. They were keenly aware of the greatness they possessed inside. It is our hope that we can assist area youth in discovering this same greatness they possess.

Our campus serves as a resource for families and the community through the facilitation of programming that provides Holistic Opportunities for Personal Enrichment (HOPE)
