WSM sits across the river from downtown and in a very lively neighborhood. Definitely check the hours before going, but it must be a part of any trip or stay in Cleveland. It has a great choice of meats, cheeses, bakery, spices, and desserts (all in the larger building). And they have a long line of produce vendors who are... More

We were taken to the West side market. It was rainy, cold and overcast, but all of the stalls were alight with treasures, food, flowers, meats, cheeses, spices. It was a foodies dream. I would shop here for beautiful meats and cheeses every week if I lived less than a 1000 mile away Good going Cleveland!

This place has an UNBELIEVABLE selection of everything imaginable. Meat, cheese, fruit, pastries, etc...We weren't able to try any meats (which all looked fantastic) but we did try cheesecake from one of the bakeries and it was sublime. I highly recommend walking through here. One small note, they close at 4. All the vendors start packing up around 3:45 and... More

Within walking distance from J Paleness House properties. Spent a few hours & bought bread, lamb, produce, cheese, pastries. Enjoyed the vast variety available. Be sure to find the Mediterranean store off to the side of the main market!

We loved our visit and tramped up and down every aisle, wanting to buy gorgeous fresh fruits and vegetables and meats to take home. Definitely worth a visit, but maybe not very interesting for kids. We went Saturday afternoon, and parking was horrendous!

The West Side Market is one of the icons of Cleveland. People from all over come for fresh meat, seafood, fruits and vegetables. Young and old are comfortable here. Personally I find the meat selection to be the main attraction. I find that the fruit and vegetable selections are at the end of their shelf life. The various meat vendors... More

It's crowded, but the amount and quality of food are spectacular. You need something you can't find every day? This is the place. Exotic cuts of meat, great bakeries, and really fresh produce. Wish we had something like this in Indy. I'd be a regular.
