“Interesting place to visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013 via mobile

Located on Race Street, Findlay Market was very interesting. It had grocery stores, shops, outdoor vendors, and a indoor fresh food market.
This place is compact and the buildings are very colorful. Nice place to take pictures. But, the the parking lot is small compared to the people. You have to wait in line on Saturday to get a parking spot and the price to park is 1.00/hr. The people handing out the newspapers were a little annoying, but only doing there job. Shopping there is a little pricy, but you will want to buy something. If you decide to go, don't go on a Saturday, because
you may not get a parking space for awhile.

“great for foodies & cooks & everyone-a lot to see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013 via mobile

It gets very busy on the weekend. Very diverse and exciting crowd. Early mornings and weekdays are calmer There is a paid parking lot. On weekdays you can park for an hour for free. So it can make a nice lunch break away from work. Some vendors are only there on the weekend. Go on the weekend to get the full effect. There are many different vendors inside and out. Dont forget to look up when you are outside to appreciate the architecture and pretty window flower boxes. My fave places to visit are cakerack, dojo gelato, pho lang tang, pet wants (they have popsicles for dogs), s&j.It's fun looking at all the unique plants for sale too. there are vendors selling handwoven baskets from Africa, you'll also see "regulars" carrying them. There are outdoor tables/beer garden outside of dojo if you want to enjoy the weather. Overall a great place for prepared foods or ingredients or just to look at
stuff! I like to bring my out-of-town visitors here.

“Ok Market”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013

Its in the heart of the ghetto.. Beautiful city, has a lot of potential but needs to be worked on quickly. The foods both meat and the produce was way over price for a farmers market.. Love the place and where its located but everything around it needs to be worked on badly..

“Fun food and market for couples, groups and families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

This is a hidden gem in Cincinnati. We love taking visitors here and locals who have never been! With tons of specialty food shops selling any kind of gourmet or fresh meat, seafood, produce or specialty food you can find, foodies will love it. There are also fun places to eat, nibble or drink. Perfect for shopping, eating while walking around or just hanging out. One tip: the main parking lot gets extremely busy on the weekends so try the south lot which enters on Race street for a place to park, $2, can't beat it. Try it!

“One of a Kind for Shopping or Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013

Findlay Market in Cincinnati is a great place to go for both shopping and for lunch. The meats, cheeses, and other fine products are fresh and high quality. There are several booths that prepare unique and delicious items for your lunch. If you're in Cincinnati it's a good place to go.
