Findlay Market Stand Comes To Walnut Hills

Findlay Market Farmstand Is Freshening Up!

You’ve seen the yard signs pop up around the neighborhood. You’ve driven by the huge white shipping container on the lot where the farmstand will be. You might have even stopped by on a Thursday evening in the hopes of picking up some fresh vegetables.

Well, the wait is over! The Findlay Market Farmstand opens today from 4 pm – 7 pm!

Look out for fresh, local produce as well as some meats and cheeses! WHRF and Findlay Market have been partnering to transform Firehouse Row into a weekly farmstand for the community. The shipping container arrived on June 2nd and wood chips were spread a couple days later. The space will continue to evolve over time, so look forward to future updates! The farmstand will be open every Thursday from 4 pm – 7 pm and a few other special days as well.  

We’re excited to announce that the Farm Stand will be a part of “Produce Perks.” Findlay Market is offering 2 for 1 incentive tokens to customers who use an Ohio Direction Card to purchase food.  The incentive is a dollar for dollar match for up to $10 using an Ohio direction Card at the farmstand. Healthy food is for everyone!

Hope you can make it! Bring a friend!

Festival Update: Help fund and get T-shirt, stickers!

What is the Cincinnati Street Food Fest? How are we crowd-funding it? Details below!

When: Saturday, October 12th, 11am – 5pm

The Cincinnati Street Food Festival (CSFF) is less than a month away! This yearly community event in Walnut Hills is a family-friendly festival featuring more than a dozen of Cincinnati’s most popular food trucks, local Mt. Carmel beer, and free live music and interactive art for all residents of the neighborhood and the city.

Needless to say, the Cincinnati Street Food Festival (CSFF) costs money, so we are asking for your help to make it happen. BUT this isn’t just any old request for donations; we’re doing this Indiegogo-style. That means you can quickly and easily donate online and then claim some cool Festival-related rewards! Any proceeds beyond the cost of the festival will be used to support future development and neighborhood events through WHRF.
One of the coolest things about this crowd-funding is that the Haile Foundation has agreed to match any amount up to $2,500. That means whatever you give is essentially doubled. Click HERE for the Indiegogo crowdfunding page.
Finally, if you can’t give money, we’d love your help as a volunteer on festival day (and you’ll get an official CSFF volunteer t-shirt for free)! To sign up visit And THANK YOU!


$15 = I [HEART] Walnut Hills Sticker
This is the easiest way to contribute, and in return we’ll help you tell the world how much you love this neighborhood! And really, any amount goes a long way towards making this neighborhood event just plain awesome.



$30 = T-Shirt + Food Truck Sticker
Destined to become one of your most-worn T-shirts, it comes in a cool charcoal color and rocks a striking design. Plus get a nifty, Indiegogo exclusive sticker with the famous food truck logo!



$50 = T-Shirt + Food Truck Sticker + I [HEART] Walnut Hills Sticker
This is the real deal. Get the official festival T-shirt, exclusive food truck sticker, AND the I Heart Walnut Hills sticker!

Join us for the 2013 Cincinnati Street Food Festival!

This summer has been packed with fun events, but the fun doesn’t have to end just because the calendar shifted. We’re gearing up for the second annual Cincinnati Street Food Festival – and we want you to be a part of it! And there are a lot of ways to be involved:
Check out our Indiegogo Campaign. The Cincinnati Street Food Fest is brought together by people with a ton of heart and not so much money. Giving $5, $10, $50 gets us that much closer to making the Street Food Fest as awesome as it can possibly be. Plus, every dollar donated up to $2500 will be matched by the Haile Foundation. So you double down on your generosity and get some sweet perks like a t-shirt and stickers! Right now we have a goal of $5,000. Help us burst that goal-o-meter! Click here for our Indiegogo page.
Volunteer at the fest! There’s a lot to be done the day of the Cincinnati Street Food Festival. From set-up to clean up and every little thing in between. And we need your help! We’ve got jobs suited for all abilities. Volunteers score a fabulous CSFF volunteer shirt – in addition to a sense of good will and bragging rights, of course. Check out our volunteer form here.

Tell the world! Tweet about it, invite your friends to the Facebook event, email your coworkers, text your basketball group, shout it from the rooftops! This is our chance to invite our friends from across Cincinnati to our beautiful, diverse, historic neighborhood so we can all celebrate and enjoy the many great things about living in Cincinnati. Don’t let anyone miss out on the fun!

Pigs set to Fly through Walnut Hills

Flying Pig Half-Marathon to run along Gilbert Avenue Sunday, May 5th;
Harriet Beecher Stowe House needs Volunteers

The Flying Pig Half-Marathon will be running right down the center of Walnut Hills, along Gilbert Avenue from MLK south to Downtown. The race starts at 6:30am on Sunday, May 5th, so runners will start to appear in Walnut Hills shortly thereafter. There’s just something so mesmerizing about seeing crowds of people take over a major city street for hours and hours, and the runners will greatly appreciate your cheers.

But where to watch? Easy decision: go to the Harriet Beecher Stowe House (2950 Gilbert Avenue)! They’ll be hosting a viewing party on their lawn, with live music from the singer-songwriter trio of Raison D’Etre.

The Stowe House really needs volunteers to help pass out orange slices to runners, and will provide all volunteers with a delicious, homecooked, FREE breakfast. Based on who we know is cooking, we’ll go ahead and guarantee it will be good. If you can volunteer, please send a Facebook message to them at the Harriet Beecher Stowe House Facebook page letting them know.
