The Gaslight District in Clifton boasts a wide of variety of restaurants, bars, two coffee houses, a brand new bakery (272, which is located at 272 Ludlow Avenue—love it!), plus a couple banks, a pharmacy, a movie theater, and much, much more.
The Gaslight District also has an unusually large and diverse group of grocery stores—four of them, actually, and they’re all within close walking distance of each other. The largest is Clifton Market, which is located at 319 Ludlow Avenue. Clifton Market is a good-sized full-service grocery store with plenty of produce, baked goods, bulk items, a deli, and staples galore. Clifton is very fortunate to have this grocery store smack dab in the middle of the neighborhood. So much of the reason Clifton is flourishing is due to Clifton Market. Thank you, Mr. Singh, for working tirelessly to keep the grocery store humming along—you’re doing a great job!
Located at 336 Ludlow Avenue, Clifton Natural Goods has been a hit since it moved to the neighborhood in 2014. It’s a good-sized health-food store, and with over 40 years in business, they’ve developed a loyal (but continually expanding) clientele. Interest in healthy, natural food has only grown since we started, and it’s a perfect fit for this neighborhood.
Jagdeep’s Indian Grocery, which is located at 270 Ludlow Avenue, is one of Cincinnati’s best Indian and Pakistani grocery stores. (And if you weren’t aware—they have great prices on yogurt!)
And we have a brand new grocery store to tell you about! Right next door to Baladi Restaurant and Bakery at 3307 Clifton Avenue is the new grocery, Baladi Market, and its products are focused on Mediterranean Food. We love the restaurant, and we’re so happy the grocery has been added to it!
Something you might have surmised if you’d read this far is that Clifton has a large international community—and you’re right. In fact, 16.66% of Cliftonites are not Americans, and 5.52% were not born Americans. One other statistic that we should mention: 18% of Cliftonites use walking as a common mean of transportation, which is three times higher than the average (6.5%) for the City of Cincinnati. When you have four places to buy groceries within close walking distance, walking makes all kinds of sense!
