I love the idea of Findlay Market but I have only been once. Honestly – I suck at driving in OTR so I hesitate to go on my own. But this past weekend, my friend Scott planned a mega-day for us that included Findlay Market, Taste of Cincinnati and an afternoon at Dad’s!
Findlay Market is the closest thing Cincinnati has to the Pike Place Market in Seattle. I love the colorful entrance! It’s so bright and vibrant and just welcomes you in!
There’s also entertainment. This gentleman was outside singing and playing some great music. His name isn’t James Dean – but something like that – James Deagon maybe? He made a joke, “You know James Dean? That ain’t me.”
Beyond these, inside there are the famous waffles and tons of meat markets (not like MLTs – actual sausages, steaks, etc…)! There are plenty of plant/flower vendors, fake purses, birdhouses, jewelry and more.
So it’s my recommendation is that if you’re new to Cincinnati or if you’ve lived here your whole life – if you haven’t been to Findlay Market – take it upon yourself to go. Bring a “green” bag to take home all your goodies!
