Mission, Vision and Values
Findlay Market - operated continuously in the same iron-framed building since 1855 - is not just another historic monument; it is an essential institution to life in 21st century Cincinnati. Linking uptown with downtown, Findlay Market is a vibrant living landmark at the heart of Cincinnati's future.
Historic Findlay Market connects farmers, producers, sellers and customers in a dynamic, diverse public marketplace.
Historic Findlay Market is our region’s premier destination for local food and artisan products, a dynamic public gathering place, and a vital community asset.
