OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) - Are you looking for a unique way to experience Findlay Market? The Taste of the World gives Findlay Market patrons an exclusive look at the history and many flavors of the historic Over-the-Rhine market.

The Taste of the World is a 90 minute escorted walking tour through Ohio's oldest public market. Participants get an extensive history of  Findlay Market and can discover hidden gems.
