Wednesday, October 21: Taste the world at Findlay Market — Ohio

The best way to experience Findlay Market! This guided tour, presented by Barb Cooper of Daisy Mae's Market, includes stops and tastings from six specialty merchants. Learn the history of Ohio's oldest public market and its Over-the-Rhine Neighborhood and discover hidden gems that make your Findlay Market shopping experience unique. No matter how your Findlay Market story starts, Cincinnati residents all share the pleasure of carrying on a tradition that is a century-and-a-half young. Each week, they gather in this living landmark to shop, socialize and reconnect with the people who grow and purvey their food. Together, Cincinnati residents have embraced a shopping experience - with the emphasis on experience - that is simply irreplaceable.
We will also spend plenty of time shopping and browsing in the Over-the-Rhine (OTR) Gateway Quarter district. It's the largest, most intact urban historic district in the United States. OTR contains the largest collection of Italianate architecture in the country and its Brewery District has more pre-Prohibition breweries than anywhere else in the world. Findlay Market is one of the oldest continuously operated public markets in the country. After shopping in the OTR, we will journey to Jungle Jim’s International Market. It's more than a grocery store, it’s a destination! With more than 200,000 square feet of shopping space in each of our stores, there are over 150,000 products from which to choose. We'll also have fun at the Cooking School at Jungle Jim’s International Market. Recreational cooks of every skill level will find our hands-on and demonstration classes to be fun, informative and delicious. The Cooking School at Jungle Jim’s International Market was voted the Best Of Cincinnati 2013 and 2014.
