While it’s only been a couple of months since Joe Hansbauer took over as President & CEO of Cincinnati’s Findlay Market, he’s about to embark on one of the busiest times of the year for the open-air market: Easter. He took a few minutes to come by our studio and talk with Mark Perzel about why he wanted this job, his impressions so far, and what plans and goals he has for the future.
In a recent article, The Boston Globe called Findlay market "A World Unto Itself."
Highlighting the diversity of products available, the great "in the heart of the city" location and the rich history of Findlay Market, the article's author shined a bright light on an already gleaming treasure of our city.
Bonita Price was a music major at The Cincinnati School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) and Central State University but took some time off to raise her family. She is now a practicing street musician to hone her voice and to provide income since she was laid off from the Jim Beam distillery when it closed its Cincinnati plant in 2011.
I caught up with Bonita at Cincinnati’s Findlay Market - Ohio's oldest continuously-operated public market.
