Nuts, spices, coffee, crepes, flowers, bakery, produce, meat, seafood… The West Side Market’s got it all, a true culinary feast—and a feast for the eyes. From oozy, caramely treats and loaves of crusty, seeded breads to whole pig heads and cow tongues to rows and rows of olives and pickles and salads. The building itself—designed by local architects Benjamin Hubbell and W. Dominick Benes—is beautiful, known especially for its 44-foot high Guastavino tile vaulted ceiling and clock tower.
This Ohio City anchor on the corner of Lorain Ave. and W. 25th St. opened in November 1912. It is Cleveland’s oldest continuously operating public market and houses 100+ vendors.
