I have seen plenty of nice markets, in Chicago, Columbus, etc. but what makes Findlay great isn't just the food they have there, it is the sense of community and activity. I can't remember the last time I went there and didn't see someone who I knew.

It's been a few years since I have been there. I was driving a Limo years ago for a friend (I'm actually a prof)but I was picking something up from the market for someone. I couldn't find a parking place and so I parked a few blocks away and walked there. I found the older homes and buildings very charming. When I got to the meat market and gave the order. The nice man said he would carry it to my car. I told him I had parked a few blocks away. He looks at me with sort of a look of horror on his face and said he would walk me back to my car. That shook me up a bit!
I have been down to that same area several times to a shop called The Wooden Nickel which has wonderful interesting antiques. We used a lot of their items to decorate our home. The shop is only a few blocks from the market.

According to the Enquirer, a roof section torn off by the crazy winds hit an electrical transformer and set off some fires in buildings close by the market. One of the photos from the storm, in the online edition, showed a fire engine in front of some of the beautified and empty row houses on West Elder St immediately across from the market. There was no damage to speak of to the market itself.

The FM area is obviously not Indian Hill. Like most downtown's that have suffered from white flight and crime there are some eyesores. However, when i go down to Over the Rhine i dont feel unsafe. FM is a great place no matter what the neighborhood. Mr. Pig is awesome BBQ and the people down there are friendly and nice. Would like to go there over a Krogers anyday.
