About Us

I found my passion at historic Findlay Market when my husband Barry and I opened our fresh produce and specialty shop called Daisy Mae’s Market. I discovered that our store was just the starting point for sharing our love of food and connecting with the Greater Cincinnati community. I launched Cincinnati Food Tours in 2012 as a way to introduce visitors to Findlay Market, share culinary experiences, and spread my enthusiasm for the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. Cincinnati Food Tours continues to grow, exploring new neighborhoods and adding new small business partners. I invite you to join us as we share food, culture, and history one step at a time.
