Best Local Market That Is Also One of the Best Food Markets in the World: Findlay Market

Findlay Market

We have always known Findlay Market is great. But one of the best in the world? OK, we kinda knew that, too. Last year Newsweek caught on and affirmed our love for the 165-year-old outdoor market — the oldest continually operated public market in Ohio — by declaring it one of the top 10 food markets in the world. The article has some odd moments — it calls our beloved goetta “haggis-like” — but we can definitely attest to the accuracy of the accolade otherwise. Newsweek puts Findlay rightfully alongside food markets like Torvehallerne Market in Copenhagen, Or Tor Kor Market in Bangkok, La Merced in Mexico City and La Boqueria in Barcelona. The highest praise of all? Findlay was the only market in the United States to make the list. Findlay Market, 1801 Race St., Over-the-Rhine, findlaymarket.org.
