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.

Even if you're in town visiting, it's still worth a trip. Grab some jerky at Czuchraj or a gyro from the Gyro Lady and enjoy. more »

All the hustle and bustle of an old world market nestled in the lively Ohio city neighborhood. I love coming here to get my spices or some niche food items that may be harder to find in the area. You'll definitely find great cuts of fresh meat and some dishes. The vegetable and fruit offering are too notch in the summer (and even through the winter months). Be prepared to battle through crowds on the weekend though as this is a popular shopping spot for everyone in the area.
Came to the area from West Virginia with my mother. We had an absolute blast walking through this Farmer's Market. I was honestly in awe because our markets back home are nothing like this. I had an amazing time. Bought several pieces of homemade breads, fruits, and meats. I LOVE this place and will 100% return when in the area
