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. Plan your West Side Market visit and explore what else you can see and do in Cleveland using our Cleveland journey planner.

  • One of the best things about living in Cleveland is this market. There's so many local vendors with seriously good product. I've never been disappointed with any purchase here, and frankly getting fresh beef from the butchers there have ruined me on big grocery store steak.
