Mr. Daisy Mae and his Sleigh

We've all heard the unofficial motto of the United States Postal Service..."Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." At Daisy Mae's Market, we don't do the "gloom of night" thing, but we're pretty reliable when it comes to staying open at Findlay Market and fulfilling our delivery orders.
If you live in Cincinnati, you know that another big winter snowstorm is predicted for tomorrow. Of course, in traditional Cincinnati fashion, today then becomes the day when everyone panics and hurries to the store to buy bread and milk (and presumably, fresh produce). I thought today would be a good time to remind you that Findlay Market is open every day Tuesday through Sunday, year-round, EXCEPT if the City of Cincinnati declares a Level 3 Snow Emergency. Level 3 rarely happens as that is when all roads are closed to all non-emergency personnel. 
We're also pretty proud to say that Mr. Daisy Mae has never missed a delivery because of weather. Occasionally he's run a little later than he prefers, but he's always arrived safely with his sleigh full of fresh produce. 
With that in mind, I have three suggestions:
1. Shop at Findlay Market today to avoid the crazy crowds at the big-box grocery stores. Parking is free and easy, and the merchants are eager to serve.
2. If you can't make it to Findlay Market today, order your fresh produce by contacting us at
3. If it snows tomorrow like they predict, drive carefully, take the Metro, or walk to Findlay Market, and you'll be greeted with open arms and warm smiles. (And bring your camera because the Market is beautiful with the snow!)
