Grocery adventures: not-so-ordinary shopping

Don't think grocery shopping can be fun? Visit these out of the ordinary destinations while you're in Cincinnati USA, and you just might change your mind. There's Whole Foods at Rookwood Commons and Deerfield Towne Center and Trader Joe's in Kenwood, as well as local gems, Findlay Market, The Friendly Market and two Jungle Jim's International Markets.


Findlay Market in Over-the-Rhine is a cherished institution, a bustling public market attracting a diverse crowd that happens to be Ohio's oldest continuously operated public market. Merchants sell a variety of goods like meat, fish, poultry, produce, cheese and flowers. Enjoy a mouthwatering waffle from Taste of Belgium, indulge in a scoop of gelato from Dojo Gelato, or order a glass of wine from Market Wines to sip amid the excitement.

Speaking of Findlay Market, it was the inspiration for The Friendly Market in Florence, KY which opened summer 2013. The Friendly Market is an indoor/outdoor market open year-round offering fresh produce, meats, artisan goods and Kentucky-made products. 

You could spend hours at the theme park of food known as Jungle Jim's International Market. Now with two locations: the original in Fairfield and the new location in Eastgate. Both are a destination, with people driving hundreds of miles (seriously) to buy dried squid, bitter melon and Bavarian mustard. If you can't find it here, it probably doesn't exist. So bring the whole family and make a day of it!
