The outdoor vendors have returned to Findlay Market, Ohio’s oldest continuously operated public market! Located just south of Dayton, Findlay Market is on the northern edge of Cincinnati's historic Over-the-Rhine district. Parking is available near the market.
Indoor merchants are open Tuesday through Sunday year-around, selling deli items, produce, flowers, cheese, prepared foods, gift items and more. From April to November, they are joined on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays by farm market and other outdoor vendors, street performers and special events.
The freshest seasonal produce in the Cincinnati area is available at the Findlay farmers market. Locally grown produce is typically harvested just prior to market day, and locally produced jams, jellies, honey, soaps, sweets, crafts, baked goods and other items are available as well.
Ethnic foods are in abundance, from the prepared Greek, Indian, Italian, Latino and Asian foods at the indoor market to the brick-and-mortar Middle Eastern and Asian shops on either side of the market. The wide variety of meal options include vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free, and tables along the street or in the ‘courtyard’ between buildings are available (Dojo Gelato serves an outstanding gelato for dessert).
Open-air vendors sell everything from chorizo sausage to imported olive oils and exotic teas, and line the streets surrounding the indoor market with tables. Vendors with shops next to the indoor market open their doors to reveal everything from fresh bee pollen to hand-carved chopsticks to locally produced mustard.
The Findlay Market is open year round, 9-6 on Tuesday through Friday, 8-6 on Saturday and 10-4 on Sundays. The ourdoor market is held on weekends from April through November. The Market is closed on Mondays.
Findlay Market is located on Elder Street, between Elm and Race; free parking is available. Get directions from Dayton here.
