New Growth Near Findlay Market But Vacant Buildings Still A Challenge


The newly opened Epicurean Mercantile Co. is finally meeting the need for an after-hours grocery across from Findlay Market. But there's also a need for more retail to fill a number of vacant buildings surrounding the historic market. Local developers and entrepreneurs are working to transform the area into a new Findlay Market District

Here to discuss development of the Findlay Market District, future development and challenges that come with new growth are Chef Meredith Trombly, co-owner of The Epicurean Mercantile Company; Kelly Adamson, executive director of the Over-the-Rhine Chamber of Commerce; Bobby Maly, chief operating officer of The Model Group and WCPO reporter Bob Driehaus.
