Our family was in the area and had some time to burn so we decided to explore this area. We have two young boys but being a market we thought this would be a nice enough trip. The market area is very nice, friendly, colorful, lots of beautiful art art everywhere and lots of great quirky shops. Where we made a mistake is when we decided to walk around a bit, just around the block to check out some of the artwork. We literally walked not even one block adjacent to the market and things got sketchy immediately. It went from hip and clean to a warzone - almost instantaneously. We literally saw a guy drinking a 40 oz beer on the sidewalk and shouting in somebody’s window of their house, cars driving around erratically, all kinds of strange things. Keep in mind this was around 3pm on a Thursday in May. We immediately turned around and went back to the market.

All in all the market is fantastic and great to stop in and look around, just be aware of your surroundings and stay on the beaten path.

Nice market, not too big. Fun shops surrounding the market area as well. We enjoyed looking at all the delicious options. We wished we'd brought an ice chest to take home some sausages etc., as we weren't going home for a while.

We enjoyed lunch there -- bought a sandwich from Em's Sourdough Bread (in the market) and a chicken salad from Silverglades deli (across the street). Both yummy!

After the market we wandered around the neighborhood, a few blocks south of the market checking out the many beautiful murals. And then we went north of the market to Rhinegeist Brewery and found more murals. Never did we feel unsafe or view anything/anyone unsavory in the least.

Having visions of the Seattle market in my brain, we decided to see Findlay market one of our stops while we were in Cincinnati.

We took a Lyft From the zoo to Findlay market with anticipation of getting refreshments and seeing the famous market during our stay at in Cincinnati.

Arriving around 3:30 pm , The place was deserted. Some of the stalls had already closed. And there just wasn’t much to see.

Even walking around the market to try to find an open place just to get a cold drink was met with disappointment. There was an outdoor bar on the west side of the market; that appeared to have quite a few people saying outside eating and enjoying the afternoon. But not much for children or teenagers.

It definitely is nothing like the Seattle market

Lovely market! Top ten in the world (per magazine source cannot recall). Try the Greek food as it is superb! Do beware if bright and sunny summer day this can be brutal as very little seating and what have is outside. Great cloudy day activity with shaded seating or to pick up to eat or cook later. It does have a few stellar opportunities to take your fav vacation photo. Unique and special Cincy spot! A must do when visiting. My teenage sons loved the waffles from the Belgian shop.

I was staying in Hebron, KY and decided drive over and visit the market. It has tons of vendors and some really unique foods. There is a huge Cincinnati Red figure that you can sit beside and take pics with. You can see the downtown Cincy area from the market.

Findlay Market always has great food options, including many to bring home. It can get very crowded sometimes but it’s worth the time. Keep an eye out for Chinos Street Food stand outside.
If they’re open, try the loaded fries.

Findley Market is something to be experienced. Everyone is going to have their own "favorite" aspect of it, to be sure, but I assure you, there IS something for EVERYONE. Food, food, and more food. I wouldn't say the layout was great (very crowded - there's no way you can "social distance"), but if you can ignore the clamor, go forth and eat. And be sure to check out the shops right around the area. Very cool.

High recommend. Go during the week if you can.

This historic market is over 100 years old and we had such a good time exploring it. There was lots of clean seating to enjoy our purchases, clean bathrooms and friendly vendors. We saw: chocolate, tea, wine, bagels, pasta, cheese, poultry, meats, plants, arepas,spices, appetizers, salads, vegan salad places, hummus, olive oil, pastries , gelato …. Vendors. Everything was beautifully presented and the prices were very reasonable.

Maybe I went on an off day but the place was just about deserted. Most of the stands were open - a focus on food - few other types of stands, and the boutiques in the area were also mostly closed. I’ll give it another shot in the summer, but I have a hard time imagining this is one of the top 10 markets in the world when there are places like Pike Place out there.
