Findlay After 4--Can You Dig It?

We've been working hard to attract more weekday shoppers to Findlay Market with our Findlay After 4 promotion. Today we're taking our Thursday afternoon down to the farm. Findlay Market operates several urban farms including one at the corner of Liberty and Elm Streets, right in the heart of Cincinnati's Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. Here, apprentice farmers work with Findlay Market staff and volunteers to plant, maintain, and harvest crops that can then be sold at the weekly farm market. Once a vacant lot, this urban farm is now connecting neighbors and supporting farm to table right in our own backyard.
Today we're celebrating all that's good about growing local and supporting regional food systems. We're looking for adult volunteers to help us on the farm between 5:00 pm-6:30 pm. Afterwards we'll share a cold one in the OTR Biergarten to celebrate at the 1st Annual Findlay Market Farm Party. There's free food and music so put on your boots and giddy up to Findlay Market.
