West Side Market, Cleveland
(4.6/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Lots to offer. Many offer the same things however. Prices are okay. The produce section is very good and the prices are great. Blueberries $1 a piece same with asparagus and others.
  • It's a huge farmer's market with all the stuff you'd expect with reasonable prices. But that's not what makes this place awesome, it's the spectacle of it. The main building looks like an old train terminal with stall crammed in to ever inch. Instead of being crowded it just makes it vibrant and exciting to wade through the crowd to inspect the various vendors. There are desserts to die for in there as well as the best Gyro you can find anywhere (the size of your arm), which you can take up onto a viewing balcony to enjoy the fracas from above while you eat.
  • I love this place. I went to three different meat vendors to find the beef rib roast that looked the best. You can't do that at a regular grocery store.
  • This place has so much history and is filled with family values and traditions. I've grew up in Cleveland for 36 years and have been in North Carolina for the past 10 years. Every time I come home, I have to visit the market and stock up. You just can't get the freshness and high quality of meats, cheeses and pastas anywhere else.
  • I love this market. Very crowded though. Check out Euro Sweets for the best macroons. They're big 5 for $10. Also definitely try Crepes De Lux this place is always busy so be quick to stay in line. Their smoked salmon is amazing, oh and strawberries, nutella and coconut are delicious.
