The Cooking School
Welcome to the Cooking School at Jungle Jim’s International Market. Recreational cooks of every skill level will find our hands-on and demonstration classes to be fun, informative, and delicious. If you are traveling in Ohio or live in the Cincinnati area, we invite you to register for a cooking class and improve your culinary skills. The Cooking School at Jungle Jim’s International Market was voted the Best Of Cincinnati 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. We are committed to offering recreational cooks the best and most diverse class offerings.
What makes a soda “specialty?” Well, these are the sodas that challenge your taste buds, are named to make you laugh or raise an eyebrow (and pick up a bottle, of course), and pack more flavor than your typical, everyday soda offerings. The shelves at each location are filled with colorful, unique, delicious, and genuinely weird bottles and cans, some of which you can grab one or two at a time, some you can take home in 4- or 6-packs. Looking for a new root beer to try? We have it. Or do you want something truly different, like Buffalo Wing Soda? We have that, too.
Ohio’s Largest Specialty Toy Store, this is your destination for a wide variety of high quality, educational, and unique toys and gifts that will spark the imaginations of kids of all ages. Offering retro and classic games for adults, as well as educational, entertaining, and exciting toys for kids of all ages, The Toy Balloon is an exceptional store stocked with truly exceptional items.
Each spring and summer, the Greenhouse at our original Fairfield location comes alive with healthy, vibrant plants, flowers, trees, and shrubs, offering experienced green thumbs and novice gardeners the chance create something beautiful.

When it’s not stocked with varieties of plant life, the Greenhouse plays host to some of our most energetic events! Look for our annual Fall Smash and Food Truck Rally, expanded Weekend of Fire, and other events to take happen in this awesome space!
Coffee can be found in other areas of our store such as American Grocery and International, but why not have the full service experience at our Coffee Bar! We stock over 50 varieties of Seven Hills coffee from bold blends to flavored favorites. A local micro-roaster, Seven Hills has been providing Jungle Jim’s with the best quality beans for 20 years. It’s a great local partnership! You can also find over 20 varieties of loose-leaf teas!
Experience all this plus you can order a cup of fresh brewed Seven Hills coffee (changing daily) at our Eastgate location only. At our Fairfield location bulk Seven Hills coffees are located in the Beer and Wine Department.
Your one stop shop for all things honey, both stores have created spaces dedicated to this sweet, savory, and delicious natural creation! Looking for whipped honey, or honey candy, butter, or cream? Want to try a new kind of honey? With dozens of honey varieties to choose from, and even more honey-related items, the Honey Table in Fairfield and the Honey Hive at our Eastgate location are both packed with gallons of honey goodness.
