The greater Cincinnati region is fortunate to have over 50 farmers markets operating every week during the summer! Farmers markets are great places to purchase local food, mingle with neighbors, meet your farmers, and more! Many of our region's markets offer cooking demonstrations, kids' activities, food trucks, and live music. In our communities, farmers markets serve many functions.
Use the CORV Local Food Guide to find a farmers market near you, including winter markets! Keep in mind that some weekday markets could be convenient on your way home from work. Look up markets online or on Facebook to learn more about what they have to offer.
