I spent Thanksgiving in Cleveland this year, and on Wednesday, we paid a visit to one of my favorite spots in the city, the West Side Market. This year the market, with its iconic clock tower, turns 100 years old. While the age of the supermarket may have killed many inner urban markets, the West Side Market, located at the intersection of West 25th Street and Lorain Avenue, is still going strong. Each year over a million visitors come from far and wide to visit the more 100 vendors that set-up shop here. You’ll find everything you need right here to make a fantastic meal. Along with fresh meats, vegetables and seafood, there are also pastries, roasted coffee, and spices.
If you’re ever in the Cleveland area, make sure you take some time to visit here. You’ll be glad you did. Until then, I close out this long holiday weekend with these wonderful pictures.
A special thanks to Nikolas Behncke for providing some of these shots.
