We love to visit public markets in other cities. When in Cincinnati make this a must see. Great mix of vendors, family businesses and prepared foods and crafts. It does get crowded. Plenty of surface lots near. It is an older part of town.

Findlay Market was a stop on a bus tour to Cincinnati. The major food vendors have permanent shops indoors: meat markets, a fish vendor, bakeries, candies, spices and more. Plus there are vendors outdoors. Everyone came back to the bus with some kind of purchase....More

As noted above in the two prior responses, there are several components to, and neighbors of, the Findlay Market. I must add, however, that this is a working market -- a foodie paradise to exaggerate a bit -- a place to buy... More

I will be in Cin Aug 3,4,and 5 for a baseball game and the Pompeii exhibit at the Museum Center at Union Terminal. Staying at Fifth and Elm downtown. Is it safe to walk to the museum and then over to Findlay Market. We also want to walk to Newport on the Levee another day and Mainstrasse Market for the "worlds largest yard sale. Is Mainstrasse Village worth a look?. Should we make time for the Zoo? If it is really too hot we won't want to walk and if we need to go to the zoo we won't walk...More

That would be a pretty long walk. It goes past the housing projects and main police station. Personally, I'd take a cab. It shouldn't be a problem to get a cab in front of your hotel. Walking to Kentucky would be something I'd do though.

Lunch at Findlay Market (1 Replies)
I am bringing a group of about 30-40 people to the area and we are doing a guided city tour. I am looking for a unique place for my guest to spend an hour or so killing time, window shopping and a place for them to eat. Do you think Findlay Market would be a good place for this? It seems like there are prepared food places but maybe not a lot of places to sit and eat. What is your opinion? Thanks! P.S. I should also mention that this would be on the 4th of July

If you all wish to eat in one place then it is probably not the best choice. There are several smaller places to eat and foods that you can grab on the go there but, as far as I am aware, not a place for a sit-down meal for 30-40. Of course everyone could wander around in smaller groups and meet back at a given place and time but I would be inclined to arrange for something in advance, especially on a holiday, at somewhere like Moerlein Lager House (on the riverfront) or even at Hofbrau...More
