Cincinnati and Findlay Market

This year we've had a lot of fun exploring Cincinatti and Newport, and once we got away from the shopping malls and interstates we are having fun hanging out with the locals. You might remember when we stopped to check out Bobby Mackey's and Newport at the Levee, and it was on that same trip to Cinci that we went to the Findlay Market.

Findlay Market is a historic farmers market right in Cincinatti - it has actually been continuously operated since 1855, so if you are looking to see something really special, don't miss a chance to see Findlay Market. The market is all about fresh, locally grown food and promoting local business - just the kind of thing we love to see and support.

And if you've been following Josh and Joe Travels for longer than ten minutes you know how much we love good barbeque, so it won't surprise you that one of the things that led us to Findlay Market was Velvet Smoke BBQ.  This place is a local favorite with stellar reviews, so if you are hungry at the market and love smoked meat, check out Velvet Smoke. If Velvet Smoke isn't your thing, you'll have no trouble finding a great fresh snack at the market. The place was hopping when we dropped by, so grab something to eat, pull up a chair and spend a few minutes at Findlay Market, and be sure to say hi if you see Josh and Joe Travels!
