Local goods, gifts for friends, souvenirs, and nostalgic looks back—these three local shops can help you fill your basket full of goodies.


Jungle Jim’s
Sensory overload begins in the entry hall, where shops from food truck Red Sesame and spice king Colonel De beckon. Hundreds of local products are scattered throughout: Chocolats Latour; Clearbrook Farms jams; Indiana Kitchen meats; and Burnet Ridge, Valley Vineyards, and Vinoklet wines. It’s a true taste of Cincinnati.

Joseph-Beth Booksellers
Just inside the front door you’ll find a large selection of books by local writers and photographers as well as titles about local history, architecture, and personalities. Nearby displays feature Cityscape Tiles; Aglamesis Bros. candy; and mugs, shirts, and greeting cards proclaiming Cincinnati pride.
