Showcasing the best parts of Findlay Market, Findlay Eats is held every Friday afternoon on the Race Street esplanade.
Findlay eats is a new Findlay Market program that aims to introduce shoppers to new merchants, foods, and food preparation techniques. Findlay Market offers market-goers free food samples and visitors are encouraged to visit the merchant’s stands to purchase the product.
Each Friday, a different merchant is featured for a food demonstration. The schedule for this year’s merchants and food demonstrations is finalized and includes a variety of vendors. To date, some of the cooking demos have included Greek Souvlaki from Kofinas
Findlay Eats is the only place in Cincinnati that offers such a diverse product array in addition to an energetic atmosphere. Findlay eats also offers market-goers the chance to interact with the business owners.
“[The business owners] love sharing how their ingredients can be used to create delicious dishes,” Development Manager Gina Regan says.
Regan says, “The goal behind Findlay Eats is to capture the busy summer lunchtime traffic and introduce customers to merchants and products at the Market they may not have realized are here.” “We wanted to find a new way to highlight our merchants and the amazing foods and products they sell, as well as do something fun and engaging to activate the Race Street side of the Market” she adds.
The Corporation for Findlay Market organizes Findlay Eats and planned for it to run through August. They are also hosting Flavor of Findlay on September 13 at 6:30pm.Flavor of Findlay consists of over 12 tasting stations featuring market merchants and top local chefs, purchase tickets here.
