During our 3-night stay in Cleveland, we spent Saturday afternoon at the market and its surrounding neighborhood. What an absolute delight! It was jam-packed with people, they had a live jazz band playing in the balcony overlooking the main market building, the architecture had a...More

If the West Side Market was closer to my home, I don't think I would ever set foot in a grocery store again. I was last there as a kid and am embarrased to say I didn't know it was still in business. It is...More

The West Side Market harkens back to the days before the auto and certainly supermarkets. The emphasis is on food, much of it prepared, and there is none of the crafts and arts seen at other markets. There are probably about 20 produce and fruit...More

I stumbled upon the West Side Market and it was a pleasant surprise. Since I was leaving Cleveland that day and did not need any food I didn't purchase anything. The West Side Market has rows and rows of vendors with fresh produce (in the...More

Overall the West Side Market is pretty cool. I got the cannoli from Theresa's Bakery(they fill the "fresh" filling in front of you) but she filled the filling without gloves and dipped the ends of the cannoli in chocolate chips without gloves!!! Not only that,...More

There is no tour. Take as much or little time as you need... remember, produce is in an area by the parking lot and then go indoors for all the rest.
