At the market -- even in the cold
I'd like to share a few photos from the farmer's market this morning. Findlay Market in downtown Cincinnati is not a roadside stand or tailgate affair; it's a year-round, elaborate, you-can-find-everything place to shop, six days a week. (They're closed on Mondays, most of the time.) And there's way more than food to choose from -- although that's what brings me down almost every weekend.
But at least until Thanksgiving, it's also a place where farmers from three states bring their autumn produce. I even saw fresh asparagus down there today.
And you can find wonderful Christmas gifts and decorations at our market, as well.
These are just a few of the goodies I saw today -- and there's a whole lot more inside the main market and in the storefronts around it.
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
