Every time I go to a farmer’s market in Cincinnati, I always wonder why I don’t make a point of going more often. The atmosphere is always so pleasant and inviting, and I love browsing at all the local goods.
Earlier this week I headed out to the Liberty Center farmer’s market, and it could not have been more perfect. I got there around 4:30 in the afternoon and the weather was absolutely gorgeous. Not too hot and a nice little breeze. It was my first time checking out their farmer’s market, and it was great seeing all the local vendors, many of which I was unfamiliar with. Discovering new local businesses in Cincinnati and beyond is always a fun treat, and farmer’s markets really are the best way to do that.
I’m someone who needs to do a few rounds when I go somewhere because I usually end up missing things the the first time through. That’s why I liked that all the vendors were set up in a walkable central area. There was live music the entire time, which really added to the experience. I can’t remember the name of the male vocalist, but he was amazing! There were quite a few people sitting around enjoying his music in addition to all the people there for the farmer’s market.
I decided to make my trip to the Liberty Center farmer’s market a generous one and only bought goodies for my mom and dad while there (daughter of the year). After perusing the vendor tents a few times, I opted for all food-related gifts. I bought my dad an apple pie from a local farm vendor (he has since devoured 90% of it) and got cherry jam and a cake in a jar from My Momma’s Kitchen for my mom.
If you’re in the Cincinnati area, I highly recommend checking out the Liberty Center farmer’s market (every Tuesday through September 26th from 3-7)! You can get your grocery shopping and retail therapy fix in one place. It’s a win-win!
