(3,200+ reviews on the web)
Flea Market Historic Site
Used since its inception in 1840 as a center for commerce and trade, West Side Market represents Cleveland's oldest market space. The building's iconic 42 m (137 ft) clock tower and brick construction date from a 1912 remodel, which transformed the old wooden structure into its present neoclassical style. You can explore hundreds of stalls selling fruits, vegetables, and other foodstuffs. Locals use the market for day-to-day food shopping. If possible, join a guided tour, offered occasionally by longtime shoppers. To visit West Side Market and other attractions in Cleveland, use our Cleveland tourist route planner.

  • I would actually rate the main market 5 stars+, but the produce section is abominable. I will never get produce there again. Every time I have, the vendors have tried to add more than I ask for and charge me for it. Each time I've brought home food that is already moldy or rots within days. I'll be sticking to my local farmer's market from now on. As far as the main market ... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. Never had a problem with any of the vendors or their products. Great selection, amazing food, THE place to go for meats, smokies, cheeses, bakery, and so much more!
  • This place is FANTASTIC. There's not many, if any places like this anywhere else. There are so many amazing stalls! Baked goods and fresh foods abound. If Iived in Cleveland I would grocery shop here and never visit a chain. You can go here to shop or eat. The only downside side would be if you don't like crowds. The building is historic and just awesome as well. Definitely worth a trip if you are in Cleveland!!
  • Just as a quick visit before I fly out, this place is really cool! Everything is really well priced compared to back home, it's a nice place to visit and maybe grab a good bite. If I had a complaint, it'd be better signs for the A and B parking lots, I only saw one but nothing telling me which lot was which.
  • Absolutely love being in the heart of the city. The Westside Market is always swarming with all kinds of people. It is a great example of what Cleveland is. Awesome people,awesome food, and great location. Super close to all the awesome.bars that W25 has to offer. Cleveland rocks!
  • A very interesting place to go. I have visited here many times with my families and friends, It is always interesting to be there. They have an amazing meat market, seafood vender, Italian food stand, Irish food stand...... I could not name them all, I always tell people who never been there, you will have to be there to feel the West Side Market.
