Findlay Market

I was asked to provide some photographs of historic Findlay Market for Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services’ yearly fundraiser.  Each year HCDD employees and local businesses donate gifts that are auctioned off to raise funds for the organization. Even though I have lived in Cincinnati for many years, I had never visited this local landmark.  I stopped by yesterday to take in the sights and to grab a few snaps.  Even on a rainy and cold February day, Findlay Market is a wonderful place to visit.

Findlay Market, located in Over-the-Rhine, is the heart of Cincinnati.  Not only has it been a market where locals have bought and sold goods since 1852, but it has also been the social center of this great city.  People from all walks of life converge here daily to eat, discuss the Bengals and Reds, people watch and gossip.  In the spring and summer, it’s the place to buy local produce fresh off the farm.  The next time you find yourself driving through Ohio to Florida, take a break to stop and visit this great market. In fact, why not stay the night and enjoy more of this great city.
