Findlay Market Cincinnati, Oil Painting by Linda McCoy

Just a really great place! The buildings are painted in pastel colors, window boxes everywhere giving the market a European feeling. If you are ever in Cincinnati, this is a must see! I was here this past Saturday with Rachel, we had a great time. It was really busy.
Here is a little history, compliments of Wikipedia:
Findlay Market was founded in 1852, on land donated for the purpose by the estate of James Findlay. The market is located north of downtown Cincinnati in Over-the-Rhine, a historic neighborhood known for its dense concentration of Italianate architecture. Open Wednesday through Saturday, with some vendors open on Sunday, Findlay Market is home year-around to about two dozen indoor merchants selling meat, fish, poultry, produce, flowers, cheese, deli, and ethnic foods. On Saturdays from March to December, the Market also hosts a farmers market, outdoor vendors, street performers, and special events. Findlay Market is a gathering place for people from all over the city. It routinely attracts perhaps the most socially, economically, racially, and ethnically diverse crowds found anywhere in Cincinnati.
