As a former Clevelander I can honestly say this is the not miss attraction in Cleveland. When you go here you see just how deep Clevelands roots are, the market has been around forever! This place truly shows the MANY different ethnic groups in Cleveland. There's just about every food imaginable & its all FRESH! Some of the best meat... More

First time visiting the market this past weekend. It was great. Lots of great products and I loved being able to haggle with some of the vendors. I was a bit let down the gyro placed closed early, but I did get to pick up some good fruits, veggies and sweets. Definitely worth checking out.

The West Side Market is the place in Cleveland to go for produce, pierogi, stuffed olives, meat, and anything that would sound good for dinner tonight. There are probably over 100 booths where everyone has a specialty. I used to go here often but hadn't for the past 25 years. Not much had changed but change was not needed. It... More

So many vendors to choose from for veggies, fruits, meats, breads or desserts. Come for lunch or dessert (crepes are a great international food to experience) & pick something up for dinner!! Note that though they close at 6 on Saturday's, vendors tend to close up early.

The parking situation is crazy, the crowd inside was terrible, and I loved every second of it. The parking and crowds are bad, because it's such a cool experience that everyone is there. We had kids with us, so were very nervous trying to keep track of them in the crowds and trying to see everything so we are planning... More

This Hungry Detective was really pumped to visit the market but once inside I was disappointed!!! I mean it was just one butcher shop after another. It was a Saturday afternoon and packed jammed with people not enjoyable!!! VERDICT: The West Side Market is guilty of cramming the most meat shops into one small space.

We came on a Monday and the market wasn't too crowded. We grabbed city roasters coffee and walked around. A lot of items seem to sell out early so go early. There is a balcony that you can take great pics. There is free parking behind it and lots of places to visit close by.
