To say Jungle Jim's is large or just a market, would be trying to kid yourself.
It is exactly what the name implies a international food market. If you can't find it at jungle Jims, then you only have one of two problems, either it doesn't exist or you cannot get it in the United States. Around every corner, even our youngest child sounds something to explore. The only reason that I am giving it less than 5 stars is because we had no where to sit in between the many many many aisles that we found at jungle Jims. However if we would have stopped on the far side near the middle eastern aisles and Italy we could have found the miniature little theatre.
Whether you're travelling with little ones that can fit in a cart or older ones that need to just take their time, Jungle Jim's is a great place to visit and we will be going back soon.

4000 different kinds of beer, wow. 1500 bottles of hot sauce, double wow. Very crowded in the afternoons though.

I didn't think it quite lived up to the hype which is why I'm giving it a four instead of a five. It was cool and definitely worth a visit but it wasn't as amazing as friends had described. The main part of the store is not what you walk into when you enter. When you first get inside, it looks like a normal grocery store. So we were confused for the first 20 minutes or so. But as we got in further we started to notice more of the novelties. We tasted some wines and bought a couple bottles. We got a lot of free samples. We enjoyed the big characters and displays in the main part of the store. It is worth a visit. This would totally be my store of choice if I lived in the Cinicinnati area. They have every food you can think of.

Love the concept!! Love the foodie experience!! Love the choices and the prices!

I know it would be hard to control vermen in a warehouse type setting like this but it is so off-putting none the less to have something scamper across the floor when you are buying groceries. Hey guys fill the whole under the refrigerated cooler near the Greek food, you have guests.

I haven't lived in Cincinnati for 14+ years and I still miss Jungle Jim's. Quite possibly the best grocer in the known universe. You can find anything here. Want a great wine? There's a huge wine selection. Want an obscure piece of fruit (durian, anyone?), that's here, also. There are aisles with foods from many countries, the butcher counter is top-notch, they have terrific sea food, and on and on. And if you just want to do your regular weekly shopping, their prices are competitive and fair. A huge gluten free section, lots of natural foods and products, cooking classes. I can't get it all down. Hot sauces, bbq & wing sauces and more. If you pass through Cincinnati (technically, the north suburb of Fairfield) make the trip. It's worth it.
