There’s a Farmers’ Market in Cincinnati called Findlay Market and I like to call it the Friendly Findlay because everyone is so nice! Located in Over-the-Rhine, it’s a 35-40 minute drive from my home, but well worth it because of all of the fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, etc. and especially the people watching and photo opportunities!
I spent a couple of hours there this past Saturday. The flowers were bright and plentiful…
Time for a smoke break…
I was wandering in and out, taking my time. What a colorful book store across the street…
I bought some organic pork chops, steak, and chicken breasts. I try not to eat much red meat or meat in general, but my husband is definitely a carnivore.
I bought broccoli, celery, red bell pepper, zucchini, squash, and cucumber. These were the biggest carrots I think I’ve ever seen!
My favorite bread store, Blue Oven Bakery has a booth there and these were the two gentlemen working it. They were good sports and so much fun! They were sold out of “Bad Boy” so I bought “Bad Girl”. It’s very similar, but all of the seeds, salt, etc. that are on the outside of the “Bad Boy” are on the inside of the “Bad Girl”!
As I was buying my meat, this gentleman noticed me taking photos and asked if I’d take his photo. See what I mean about friendly people!
This artist creates really unique decor items from clay. I forgot to ask for his card.
I put a dollar in this boy’s violin case…
Cute little girl…
This is the other end of the building. There are lots of places for people to sit and socialize, have a bite to eat or just people watch!
As I was walking to my car, I noticed these children swinging at a playground next door, so I started taking their photo. They soon noticed me and the little girl said, “Thank you”. That pulled at my heart-strings a bit. I guess she doesn’t receive that much attention, so having someone take her photo was special!
I love being a “Tourist in my City”!
