In many ways, music saved my life, and I have the most famous director of the USMC bands to thank for it!

Cincinnati Farmers' Markets


National Register of Historic Places: Findlay Market

With a history dating back to 1788 Cincinnati quickly became a capital of agricultural trade, because it was located on the Ohio River for easy shipping. At one point, the Queen City supported at least nine or ten large farmers' market throughout its location.

Today, the magnificent Findlay Market, founded in 1852, is the last remaining farmer's market of the original historic number, located north of the Ohio River in the neighborhood called Over-the-Rhine. Alive with vendors and special events, it has been on the National Historic Register since 1972.

The neighborhood itself has experienced substantial preservation and reconstruction from 1990 to the 2010s and is a popular place for visitors to congregate. The market is the center of the larger Findlay Market District, which is almost a type of Enterprise Zone for increasing business and preserving the historic architecture of the neighborhood.

About Findlay Market

The website of Findlay Market speaks of hope for the future and plans to remain in place for many decades to come. It is a green operation and its vendors have embraced sustainability measures in growing produce and animal crops. Over 50 different farms send their good to market here and the market encourage apprentice farmers as well.

The Farmers' Market portion of the establishment is open April through November each year on Saturdays and Sundays, with a few vendors here and there during some weekdays. The Findlay Market Urban Farm is particularly interesting, growing food very close to the market.

A large number of other food and non-food vendors operate in the building on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Besides all of the above, many full-time year-round merchants sell their good in the building during regular working hours every day. This includes restaurants, clothiers, furniture stores, craft shops, cafes, and global enterprises. It will take you at least a full day to visit all of them.

No matter what day you go to the market, the sights, sounds, and aromas will create lasting memories.
