The West Side Market is a wonderful place to get great bargains on fresh produce, meats, bakery items, cheese, and anything else you can think of. Be aware that it's very crowded on Saturday, and there are many people who think it's acceptable to elbow their way through the tightly-packed crowd. The weekend is not a time to take small children or strollers. I wish we had something like this in Dayton! And don't say "we do - the Second Street Market!", 'cuz it's not even close!

From Texas, I've never seen anything like it. Basicly it's a large indoor farmers and meet market with all independent vendors. from fresh fruits and veggies to meet and bread. Its a huge market with lots of choices and vendors

There are two adjacent buildings; one for just fruits, nuts and vegetables; and the other that has wonderful meats, cheeses, ethnic snacks (meat pies, spinach pies & fafelle wraps). The quality of fresh meat, sausage and snacks are a picture in this beautiful old building. One can buy and eat on their overhead balcony great luncheon or snack items.

its the happening place in cleveland. real people hawking their products like the old days. so refreshing after shopping at grocery stores at malls. the people alone are worth the trip. they are wonderful. they are so nice and real. and the food!!!! it is awesome. you cannot describe it in words. it must be experienced. have fun just watching the action from the balcony. that is truly a downhome experience.

Anyone visiting or living in cleveland needs to visit the West Side Market. I recommend dropping by during the work day, not at lunch time. Literally everything is good. from traditional cured and smoked meat stands, fresh produce, baked goods, gyros, butchers, this is the place to go for real food.
