Described as the “General Store of the Future” by CityBeat, Park + Vine offers a wide variety of eco-friendly merchandise that minimizes the use of natural resources and animal byproducts. Products include reusable bottles, bags and food carriers, non-toxic cleaning and paint supplies, natural baby and parenting supplies, a growing selection of foodstuff, and lots more.
Since our opening in May 2007, we have encouraged people to become more aware of the environmental impacts of their consumption choices through a nice variety of events that, according to CityBeat, show “struggling wannabe-greenies the way to environmental salvation.”
Over-the-Rhine lies across Central Parkway (previously the Miami & Erie Canal, the “Rhine” in the neighborhood’s name) from downtown Cincinnati on 362 acres of narrow streets and mostly Italianate architecture listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It provides a geographic link between downtown and the area surrounding the University of Cincinnati.
Findlay Market, located six blocks north of Park + Vine, is Ohio’s oldest continuously operated public market and one of Cincinnati’s most cherished institutions. The Main Street district to the east continues to revive the neighborhood as a venue for converted lofts and apartments, popular entertainment, and art galleries. Music Hall stands as home to the symphony and opera on the western edge, while the Ensemble Theater of Cincinnati, Know Theater of Cincinnati and the Art Academy of Cincinnati are located at the intersection of 12th and Vine streets.
