It is a great historical marketplace. My family has gone there many times throughout the years. Gramps worked there as a boy and young man. All the venders are top shelf but family priced. A wonderful place to mingle and smell that smell!

I wish I lived closer, this was always so fun to go to when I lived in Cleveland heights and wanted to cook a random dinner, or just have some of the freshest veggies around!! Everyone is so nice, and it smells so wonderful! HIGHLY recommend

Fresh fruits and veggies XXL ! Prices were so cheap. Everyone is friendly. Bought some peirogis and they were braided at the top like a Michigan pasty. Bread so soft it melts it your mouth. Was not a fan of the cake pops/truffles. Raw dough... wish they told me before I bought them.

“At least 5 generations of shopping at West Side Market”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Steeped in Cleveland tradition, I shop here with my family as my grandparents & great-grandparents did. Meats, cheeses, pasta, seafood, baked goods, produce, deli, spices & sauces - all fresh! I like to go to my regular vendors and also try something new from others. There is so very much diverse offerings to choose from. You can dash in for something specific or you can browse leisurely. You can spend a little money or you can spend a lot here and always come away with the satisfaction of getting exactly what you want, the amount that you want and not worry about the quality of the items. The vendors are always pleasant and knowledgeable of their goods. The fruit / vegetable vendors are always offering deals - this is the ideal place to stock up on fresh produce. There are places to eat within the West Side Market so no worries about shopping on an empty stomach. Behind the market there are large parking lots, free, with easy access to the main building and the vegetable building. This is the perfect place for shopping for dinner or shopping for a big occasion. While you're there - look for the steps up to the balcony for a full view of the market and to take in the architecture. If you live outside of Cleveland, the West Side Market is easily accessible from the 25th Street exit of the highway.
