This location is also known as PNC 2nd Street Market, located in Downtown Dayton. It is a wonderful place to visit and if you are living or visiting Dayton, I highly recommend you visit this market. It is absolutely a delight with tons of local businesses and small restaurants. It is a long, open building that takes up about a block with booths set up with an array of items for sale. Some of the stuff includes a flower shop, bread shop, garden shop, tons of delicious restaurants, tons of locally-grown produce and meats for sale, cheese shops, etc.
My favorites include:
*All Souped Up (restaurant): this vendor has tons of delicious soups and sandwiches. I definitely recommend the egg salad sandwich on the croissant with broccoli cheese soup.
*Blue Jacket Dairy: this vendor has the most AMAZING cheese!!! They offer samples to try before buying, and I absolutely love their cheese. I always buy the goat cheese and ludlow when I go to 2nd Street Market.
*Spice Rack & Bulk Foods: this is a fun little grocer INSIDE the market. They have tons of stuff in here. A MUST TRY includes the Amish Butter… it is so incredibly amazing and they sell it!!
*Rahn’s Artisan Breads: this vendor bakes the most delicious bread! I love the potato bread. They have lots of samples and varieties to choose from.
*Landes Farm: They weren’t listed on the list of vendors on the 2nd Street Market website, but I do believe this is their name. She (it is normally a woman I buy from, hence the “she”) has the most amazing bacon I have ever tasted in my entire life, hands down!!
*Dayton Urban Green: this vendor has a lot of.. wait for it… GREEN stuff!!! I have bought worm castings from here to use in my gardening. I have also bought a cloth vegetable bag.
*My friend loves this place as well and pointed out that her favs include E.A.T food for life, Russell the Farmer, and Mile Creek Farm (she says this farm sells only the items that they grow themselves)
There is so much to taste and sample here. This market gives us an idea of the local, green Dayton.
TIP: There is an ATM on site for the convenience of the customers. Some of the businesses/booths accept credit cards/debit cards, but some only accept cash.
TIP: Blue Jacket Dairy will give you a punch-type card where you can get a stamp for a certain amount of money spent or purchases made and then use it when you fill your card up.
