Market on the Square returns June 2nd

After a successful first season, Market on the Square will return to Cincinnati’s main gathering point for another summer.

Sponsored by downtown law firm, Strauss & Troy, Market on the Square will run every Tuesday from June 2nd to September 29th with 14 fresh market vendors (see full list below) setting up shop, on Fountain Square, from 11am to 2pm.

Last summer people could find fresh produce, baked goods, prepared lunch food, fresh flowers and handmade items from some of Cincinnati’s favorite market vendors.

The 18-week market season is expected to once again draw huge crowds to Fountain Square as downtown workers enjoy lunch and enjoy some open-air market shopping.
