The West Side Market could easily be mistaken for a European central market.  She is a cornucopia of fruits, vegetables, meats, and deserts. No trip to Cleveland would be complete without visiting the Market.  

Built in 1912 to service Cleveland’s growing immigrant populations, the city owned facility housed fresh meat and produce shops while stocking ethnic foods. Today, the Market continues the tradition.

For an unobstructed view of the market floor, climb the steps on south-west corner to the narrow gallery. Don’t forget to buy a snack. The gallery has small seats for you to enjoy your food and take in the bustle of a European styled central market.
