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.

So much food. Incredible amount of meats, sweets and breads. Cheapest fruits and vegetables i have seen in awhile. We were visiting so it made purchasing anything tough.

Amazing place to shop for great food and deals. Many different types of fresh fruits and vegetables from dealers that you can find some great deals on. I love the selection of meats and cheeses you will find, everything you could want from beef, pork, lamb, veal, chicken, goat, turkey, rabbit, smoked delicacies, and the list goes on. It’s easy to spend an entire day browsing and checking out all the generous offerings at each booth. The building is clean and easy to find, parking is available right across the way for a small fee. Handicap accessible parking and entrance, however the restrooms are located down stairs. The restrooms were clean and functional with a clearly marked location sign.
I love this place for the outside vendors. There are not as many vendors on the inside anymore and it’s really all the same types of items. Honestly more baked goods and sweets than real food. Now if you are going for fresh fruits or vegetables this is the place to go! If you’re looking for a deal go close to closing and you can make out with some great items from those vendors as it’s less they have to pack up for the next day. I spent $100 on fruits and vegetables and I know if I went to an average grocery store it would have easily been over $300.
