Findlay Market Gift Certificate Bonus Bucks

Did you know Findlay Market offers gift certificates in $5 denominations that are redeemable at any Findlay Market merchant, indoors or outdoors? You can order online through the website or purchase at the Findlay Market information center. These gift certificates are great to give and to get any time of the year but are especially rewarding now because Daisy Mae's has enhanced the benefits!
Tuesday through Friday in January and February, each $5 Findlay Market gift certificate will be worth $6 in fresh produce at Daisy Mae's. Redeem as many as you like...You can even buy more to replenish your supply. We're offering this unique reward not only to thank our loyal customers, but also to encourage new visitors on weekdays in the winter months. We get a little lonely on cold days when folks forget that Findlay Market is a year-round destination. We're thinking (and hoping) that by offering an extra incentive to shop throughout the week, we'll help spread the word that Findlay Market is open every day except Monday.
Neither rain, nor snow, now sleet, nor gloomy days will keep Daisy Mae's from providing the Cincinnati community with fresh fruits and vegetables. Visit us on the Race Street end of the market house under our covered, heated tents.

'Tis the Season

If you're anything like I am, you may be looking for new ideas for Christmas gifts. I always need a couple small things that serve as not only Christmas gifts, but also as gestures of thanks for the little things that people do for me. You know the ones I'm talking about...administrative assistants, delivery personnel, neighbors.
We've come up with two no-stress shopping gifts for your holiday giving. First, is our Gift Box that contains 20 pieces of fresh fruit for only $15. Delivery is free to most downtown Cincinnati locations.

Our second suggestion is our exclusive wooden gift box containing 4 of your favorite Yoder's Amish jams, jellies, or butters. This keepsake box looks great on the table and can be refilled with other jars when your supplies run low. Price of the wooden gift box, made by the Cooper elves, is only $20 including your choice of Yoder's products

For further information, call Barb at 513-602-5602...Or better yet, stop by our Findlay Market stand to see samples and place an order. 
Happy Shopping!

Findlay Market Myths Revisited

In 2009, I wrote a post about Findlay Market myths. After taking a look back at that post, I think we've made some progress in the last two years.  By looking at the graph below, prepared by Cheryl Eagleson, Marketing Director for The Corporation for Findlay Market, you can see that traffic has increased every year since 2006. We seem to be destroying some of the myths about location, parking, safety, and atmosphere as Findlay Market continues to attract more and more visitors each year. 

We need to continue to work, however, on busting the myth about Findlay Market as a "weekend only" destination. You can see from the chart below (also prepared by Cheryl Eagleson) that the traffic count on Saturday is more than twice that on other days. We love the fact that Findlay Market is an "attraction" for out-of-town visitors, students, and suburban families as it also continues to grow as a shopping alternative to grocery stores and malls. But we only wish that more shoppers would realize they can stop by Tuesday through Friday as well as on the weekends.

When the days get shorter and colder, many people just plain forget about Findlay Market. At Daisy Mae's, we have made it a goal to remind customers that we are open every day except Monday. You, too, can help the merchants at Findlay Market by reminding your co-workers, neighbors, and family members that this historic market is convenient and available year-round. It's possible to shop for fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, seafood, bread, pastries, gelato, waffles, prepared meals, tea, coffee, wine, and gifts from 9:00 am-6:00 pm on Tuesday through Friday, 8:00 am-6:00 pm on Saturday, and 10:00 am-4:00 pm on Sunday. 

Do your part to promote this historic landmark. Be a market myth-buster and spread the word that Findlay Market is open every day except Monday, year-round. 

The merchants will thank you.
