Findlay Market to Host Flavor of Findlay Fundraiser

Top local chefs and Findlay Market merchants are teaming up to create delicious and unique bite-sized dishes for one night only. Flavor of Findlay, (previously titled Eat Local for the Globe) will return to our historic market on Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 6:30 P.M. Together, we will celebrate the farmers, food artisans, butchers, fish mongers, cheese sellers and bakers that make Findlay Market so unique.

The event may have a new name, but keeps its previous format: more than a dozen tasting stations pairing a Findlay Market merchant with a top local chef, wine or beer pairings at each station, a robust silent auction (prizes include annual Red Bike passes, Walt Disney World tickets and FC Cincinnati tickets), lively DJ and craft cocktails by Molly Wellmann of Wellmann Brands.

Participating local chefs include: Jean-Robert de Cavel of French Crust Café and Bistro and Jean-Robert’s Table, Stephen Williams of Bouquet, Suzanne Church of Metropole, Todd Kelly of Orchids at Palm Court, Steven Shockley of The Anchor, Joseph Scheidenberger of 27 Bar+Kitchen, Josh Campbell of Django Western Taco, Paul Alford of O Pie O, Dana Adkins of Cozy’s Café & Pub, and Brad Bernstein of Red Feather.

Participating Findlay Market merchants include: Babushka Pierogies, Bouchard’s Pasta, Colonel De Gourmet Herbs & Spices, Dean’s Mediterranean Imports, Eckerlin Meats, Eli’s BBQ, Em’s Sourdough Bread, Fresh Table, Gramma Debbie’s Kitchen, Madison’s, Mama Lo Hizo, Maverick Chocolate Co., Pho Lang Thang and Taste of Belgium.

The chefs and merchants are generously donating their time and talents for a great cause; all proceeds from the event will go towards Findlay Market’s entrepreneurship programs, local food initiatives and beautification at and around the market. We encourage the public to help as well—by coming and eating! Tickets are $75 and can be purchased at

We would like to thank our Flavor of Findlay sponsors, including: 3CDC, Barnes Denning, Benefits Network, The Mayerson Foundation, Mellott & Mellott and Model Group.

We invite you to join us as the sun sets and the market lights come on for an unforgettable evening full of fun, laughter, and of course, the best food and drink in the city.
