Who We Are
Artichoke is owned by husband and wife team Brad and Karen Hughes. We have designed a store at Findlay Market to meet the needs of experienced and novice cooks, those who are new to the Market, as well as those who are regulars. We want to be your go-to place for cookware of all kinds. At Artichoke, you’ll find all the basics, along with unique and classic pieces not available elsewhere. In addition, we strive to find one-of-a-kind handmade items for your kitchen, made locally.
THE ARTICHOKE STORY
As long-time customers at Findlay Market, we saw the need for a store specializing in cookware. While the Market has a wealth of wonderful foods of all kinds, we often found ourselves having to travel elsewhere to find that special pot or prep tool.
We have created a "curated cookware collection" that reflects our commitment to good design, quality construction, and superb performance. The items we choose are the ones we use ourselves and are made by companies we believe in. Check out some of our product lines in the "What's In Store" section of this site. Better yet, come visit us to see what's new!
With all the amazing produce at Findlay Market, of course we want to be cooking! We have installed a fabulous demonstration kitchen to allow us to offer classes and demonstrations to show you how to cook whatever you find at the Market with the products we have in our store. Guest chefs and our own staff will help you perfect that hollandaise sauce, make the most of your pressure cooker, bake amazing macarons, and much more. Keep tabs on our classes and other events we have planned by checking the "What's Cooking" section of the site, and by all means sign up for emails (at the bottom on any page) so we can keep you up to date on our activities. Oh, and of course, follow us on Facebook!
