REVIEWS OF West Side Market IN Ohio

Tina Blankenship

Good fresh foods. Friendly vendors. Good variety.

todd schulz

Wow! You can't imagine the selection of meats and cheeses available at the West Side Market! Anything and everything pertaining to the meat lovers pallet can be found under one roof. Even if you're not shopping it's worth visiting just to see the throng of meat loving mayhem that goes on here. Some of the coolest architecture you'll see in the area too.

Roni Keller

I always enjoy coming here! We live in Arizona and every now and then we visit our children and their children! This is one of my favorite places to go! Everything is fresh! We went on a weekday and it wasn't so busy! You should really check it out! Fresh meats, veggies and fruits, candies and bakery, and so much more! I would give them a thousand stars, if I could!

Justin Thirion

Lots of food from all over the world. It's just a fun atmosphere. Free parking for 90min right next to it.

Michelle Tridico

If you have never been here, you should definitely go! You will not regret this visit! Friendly vendors let you try samples before you buy. Atmosphere is awesome. We met lots of awesome vendors and shoppers. Spent the whole day here. Everything from homemade fudge, pastry, donuts, cookies to fresh meats, cheeses, pasta dishes, fruits and vegetables galore. Even fresh ground coffee and fresh fish. Very family friendly. Some craft vendors and homemade wares even on display for purchasing also! LOVED IT AND WILL BE BACK!


Its pretty cool. Quite a few vendors(Meat, bakeries, pastas, traditional foods) parking is free for 1hr and $10 after that.

Melissa Incorvia

I love this place! But where are the deals? I could walk out of that place with armfuls of food for less than what I would pay at a store. Still love it though. Note to self: Haggle more! And bring cash for Steve's Gyros! Yumm!

Jennifer Pallone

Went at 930am on a saturday. Good selection. A lot of produce vendors gave free samples. Meat and bakery inside looked fresh. No problem parking in the lot.

Brandon Cooke

Really liked the options but although the neighborhood is open well into the evening the market closes around 3-4. Good food though

Bob Orwig

It was great. They have every kind meat, poultry, seafood, vegetables and sweets that you can imagine. All very fresh.

Bob Z

Wife and I went on Saturday 6/8, 1130 am and it seemed dead. A lot of produce vendors are gone. Noticed not too much in the way of chicken and pork. Don't let the parking scare you. Park for free for the first 90 minutes. You should be able to look and get what you need in 90 minutes.

Dawn Flanigan-Bryson

So much FRESH EVERYTHING. We picked up some great delicious produce and meat here at a terrific price. Will be visiting this place Everytime we come up.

Ian English

Always a great time. Great variety of foods great prices and very friendly people working there

Brittany Demeter

Always fun to come here! Great options that you won't find anywhere else

Worth the drive. Parking was easy and cheap. Tried a creepe called banana monkey a bit too sweet but good. Bought some Frozen jalapeno and potato pierogies. 5 stars! (After cooking of course!)

Misty Cochren

First time hear was really cool and alot of selections. Some food was good and some didn't care for. But had a good time

This place blew my mind! If you like food, you will love this place. There is so much to choose from. You really just have to go there and see for yourself.

Dawn McDermott

Always fresh. They have all the "hard to find" items you could possibly need. Vendors are friendly and helpful.

Tricia Bernhard

Fun place, could easily grocery shop here any day of the week! Great meat selection and Italian pastries.

Jeremy Kinton

Great place to visit! Take family and spend a few hours shopping for fresh meats, seafood, veggies, desserts, and more!

Robert Fultz

Better take your credit card or lots of cash cuz this place was awesome! great deals on food and meats! You'll find anything you like

Case Beau

Always a great sight & tasting experience. Fun to nibble through the interior & exterior stands. Beautiful prepared foods, meat, fish, fruits, & vegetables. Cleveland is LUCKY to have such an iconic place. Most cities would give anything to have such a year round place.

Fonda Nadege

Check out Vera pastry when you get to this Market. She is gifted. I loved every pastry I bought from her.

Areal Jones

Amazing place to go on a nice Saturday morning. It gets pretty busy but you will find really good prices on meats and produce!

Roberto Rivera

Ohio City street festival. Good time. I like that they only had local vendors there. Not just a bunch of carnival trucks that go from place to place to place. You got to actually sample food from businesses in the area.

Tiffanee Warner

Quick stop on a Monday. A few kiosks closed, but the necessities were available.

Carol G

Neat place! Foster's meat was great! It sat in my yeti all day and meat was still fresh(no meat smell). Macaron was not edible(can't remember which stall I bought it from), bread stall was really nice, vegetable/fruit vender were engaging, and lots of variety in cheese shops.

Muhammad Shahid

Follow on Twitter @WestSideMarket Cleveland’s public oldest market is home to 100 vendors offering meats, seafood, fruits, vegetables, baked goods, dairy, flowers, ready-to-eat foods, spices and nuts. Must visit place in the #Cleveland (Ohio). Fresh and healthy stuff. Well behaved shopkeepers.

Angi Scudder

Lots of high quality stands and food to choice from. The diner is a great place for breakfast

Manuel Jimenez

Great places for a foodie to enjoy! Try a Peruvian stuffed potato with cheese and walk around. Get some popcorn when you leave and a juice to feel great.

Jerry Vanhulle

Fresh Produce, butchers, cheeses, baked goods, mostly indoors and truly elegant architecture makes the west side market a MUST see for tourists and natives alike. The quality of the available products is top notch and if you go in around 3 or 4 you will get produce sellers making some great deals. We walked out with 4 pounds of fresh strawberries for under 8 dollars! Fresh makes food fantastic and the West Side Market is bursting with freshness.

Skylar Wooden

This market made me fall in love with Cleveland. I will definitely be back. We got such good hummus and treats.

Tequila Answers Always

Take a walk thru an amazing market. Such beautiful fruits to choose from. Dont forget to see the meats and fresh baked goods .

Ammar Nahari

I go there at least once a month. You can find local food and products, including fruits and vegetables, meat, seafood, cheese, nuts, bakeries, sweets etc . It is an active place and it is usually busy. I Would advice you to cach out some money before hand, so that you can control your spending. Learn from my mistakes!

Jackie Cotman

LOVE this place. Anyone in the area should be visiting often. We live near Wooster and make the drive at least once a month. We buy bread and cheeses you can’t get anywhere else, and some of the meat vendors are really great too. The imported goods vendor is the only one of its kind around that I know of and it’s irreplaceable if you have an adventurous palette.

Derek Rosecrans

This place was pretty cool. Lots of different foods. Some places have food ready to eat others need to taken home and cooked. Either way, check it out and I bet you will at least buy a dessert.

Benjamin Grim

A must to visit. Great produce, meats and everything else. Unfortunately we are from out of town and limited on enjoying some of the wonderful products. Great market.... wish we had one like it.


The market was absolutely fantastic, tons of stuff that you'll want to take home. Pretty good place to actually grab lunch covering all the food types with an insane amount of vegetarian options. If you have a sweet tooth there is also a crazy amount of dessert options. Well climate controlled and mostly located inside.

Katnis District

This is an amazing experience! There are so many different vendors to choose from! On the outside there are fruit and vegetables vendors as well as honey, maple syrup and flowers. On the inside of the market you will find everything from Mexican to crepes, from fresh nut butters to fresh milk and lots of jerky and meats to quaint middle Eastern cuisine. I love the organic vegetable stand just outside to the left near the honey stand. I can't wait to go back again! We'll bring a cooler to take stuff home!

Alicia Smith

Got to taste some real good grapes and bought some delish passion fruit tea and sprouted bread....

Kelly Ann Johnson

Fun market with tons of bakeries and butchers. Most places required a min. purchase of $10 if you use a card and I was just visiting for the day so didn't want to buy tons of produce and baked goods that would melt and spoil in a hot car while exploring the rest of the city. The honey sticks are delicious!

Tamra Upton

Cleveland staple! I love this place for the nostalgia ofmy childhood going there and the fact they STILL provide EXCELLENT meats and produce that feels like your neighborhood market and butcher shop!

Hope Soto

This is the greatest place ever. Fresh food from local vendors. Always busy

Robin Griffin

This place is sooo cool very historic great food. Butchers are authentic family owned.

J Ritchie

Love, love, love this place for breakfast, brunch, lunch or an early dinner. The servers are fantastic, the daily specials and standard menu items leave very little to be desired. The fact that it is attached to the West Side Market means fresh meat, bacon, and produce daily.

Deborah Flaherty

It's been awhile since visiting the market I found that parking was better and the market was cleaner. It is still a feast for the eyes and stomach! As usual I hit up the falafel stand on the way out.

Tammy Dodge

Great place for some unique eats. Plan to spend some serious cash on food. Mostly overpriced.

Mariah Dawson

Shop local! At most stalls, the staff projected politeness and eagerness to make a sale. However, if you're short in statue you might have to raise your hand or peek around the corner to get the stalls attention.

Amber Bigley

Came to the area from West Virginia with my mother. We had an absolute blast walking through this Farmer's Market. I was honestly in awe because our markets back home are nothing like this. I had an amazing time. Bought several pieces of homemade breads, fruits, and meats. I LOVE this place and will 100% return when in the area

Jeff Johnston

You don't get the old style Market like this back in the Northwest. Great selection of meats, fruits, veggies and bakeries old world.

Amy Hewis

Tons of variety, easy parking and there are plenty of places to grab something warm to eat. Make sure to bring a good shopping bag and don't be afraid to price around in there. Don't come hungry or expect to spend double!

Michael Walsh

Number of different produce vendors was lower than in past, but the selection and prices were very good. Inside was clean and atmosphere nice. Wasn't looking for anything specific but found some bakery items worth purchasing. Should make more clear cash is not accepted when leaving the parking lot.

Stephanie Carlson

This place is amazing! Make sure you get there early if you want a good parking spot, no matter what time of year it is! It's easier to get to enjoy it if you give yourself a lot of time. There are many many vendors so you can usually get something at a decent price and negotiation. Everything is great! There is a bathroom in one of the buildings that is easily accessible by a stairway. That is where most of the meat and cheese and delicious dessert vendors is located. So you don't have to worry about having to go to the bathroom and not knowing how to get to one! This is a great time and my husband and son and family visit each year!

Joann Holman

Love it. Been going since I was little with parents. Now I go with my children and grandchildren. Can always find the best vegetables,fruit, and meat.

Monica Harris

Always love it here! Always fresh fruit and veggies. The vendor are very nice

Ray Ribaric

A very nice Market with a good selection of meat poultry and fish as well as vegetables in season. The market also has a good variety of ethnic foods available at reasonable prices and a fair selection of baked goods. Several vendors offer fast food options. A seating area is also available. Wish we had a market like this in our town.

Me Matthias

Used to adore this place years ago, sadly it has changed. Produce section was almost empty. Was ripped off by barkers selling selling their wares. Brought my own bags, but they insised on putting Items in black bags. Was pick-pocketed by two men lost $45.00. Slight of hand by barkers , of course.Got home to find moldy balckberries and yellowed broccoli. I will never go to this place again. Sometimes iconic places die.

Daniel Quill

Great place to relax and have a drink. We sat outside on the patio which was delightful. The staff wad friendly, the food was tasty and beer was flowing. Stop in take a load off. It worth our time and I recommend at least giving it try.

Joseph Powell

A cornucopia of fresh fruits, veggies, and meats! Love it! Wish I lived closer and it would be my go to!

Rachael Munzz

awesome place. We came to Cleveland to pick up a car and didn't know what to do for the weekend. I love cooking and markets and dealership recommended we come here. Very glad we did, very cool place


Liked the selection of vendors. Went on a Saturday and it was very crowded so we did not stay long. Parking rates are reasonable also.

Adam Piwarski

The west side market is not only a Cleveland landmark but it is an excellent place to bring your family for fresh foods. Their layout is a bit crammed but it is completely worth the experience. Their food ranges from steak to fish cupcakes to noodles. They have a world renown gyro place called Steve's Gyro. They also have a world renown beef jerky place called JJ's meats. Both places have been on the food Network and have won awards several times. Both places are completely reasonable in cost. A jumbo gyro is only around 11 bucks (4/26/2019). Just be weary of the fact that some places accept cash only. They do have an ATM there if needed. Parking is free for the first 90 minutes. Then about 2 bucks an hour. Also when you're here don't forget to stop at Great Lakes brewery and Mitchel's Ice Cream for beer and dessert.

Cleveland Contractors

Always a great experience!! Watch out for the fruits, take then home and cut them up, separate them and refrigerate them quickly. They tend to go bad very fast (what do you expect for a buck)

Robert Sanz

My family has been shopping here for more than 50 years. I visit once a week with my son. Love the people, love the selections.

Natalie Wallenberg

Wow, what an awesome spread of vendors, from sweet treats (macaroons, cakes, cannolis), hummus, bagels, meats, fish, crepes, coffee. Along with a solid section of crazy affordable fruits and veggies. The building is gorgeous as well, & theres a parking lot near by. Be aware of their hours though.

Alton McCruel

Nice selection of meat vendors and reasonable prices. Free parking for the first 60 or 90 minutes. Quality of items are superior to grocery stores. Produce was great, too.

Casey Meyer

Iconic marketplace. It's hard to find stuff here that isn't absolutely delicious. Even if you're not buying anything, the experience of just being here is awesome.

Gabby Giannuzzi

Great place to shop for local food. It is a fun experience to explore the kiosks to see what's available. The produce was fresh and pretty. It was a little warm inside but I don't think there's really anything they could do about that.

cubo harris

This was a nice experience. I haven't been here in years. Great selection of seeded watermelons. Very sweet. Cantelopes are very sweet.

Julie Stresing

Love going here. Always stop at Steve's Gyros located inside the market, for the best gyro you will ever have! Always makes the trip to Cleveland worth it!

Sam Young

One of Cleveland's best attractions- I personally go for their Macaroons

Rebecca Bigley

A bit overwhelming for my 1st time. Not very organized but clean. Take cash for some places and a cooler. We will go back! (Too crowded for strollers and toddlers though-we learned our lesson). Foods are a bit pricy but the produce people will flex their pricing. Plan a couple trips to the car. Parking is close and very reasonable.

Elijah Matthias

First off a pickpocket stole everything my mother had out of her purse, The produce side of the market had hardly any vendors, the main building had nothing but meat delis 1 Baker and a few dotted confectionery and sweet shops.

Micheal Bugeja

Fresh produce that's very cheap and affordable. Lots of selection, well worth th visit.

Hannah Stein

A true gem in the heart of Cleveland's west side. Go during the week to avoid massive crowds, or brave the rush during the weekend for a truly unique experience. Local meats, baked goods, cheeses, deli and lunch and breakfast choices. Connected to a great produce market and walking distance to Ohio City's shopping district.

Jennifer Ruzicka

This is such a great farmer's market. I also love the international foods that can be found here. If you are a fan of cheese as I am check out the Specialty Foods store inside the Market. They have some outstanding Feta cheeses!

Melissa In Oregon

Liked the market place inside... Lots of cool and unique items. Not impressed with the vegetable area... Calling out at me when I am walking by is a huge turn off!

Patricia McClenton

Iconic, that's the word for the West Side Market. We are very lucky to have such a great market here in Cleveland. I haven't been in awhile, but everything was clean and the purveyors are friendly. Love it here

Billy Ray Cyrus

I think it's a fire hazard as there is way to many people in such a narrow walkway but it's a great place to buy fresh and high quality goods like fish, and meat

Trevor Rood

Need some food? They've got it, probably in 15 different varieties. Don't make it up there as much as I'd like but always find something delicious and new to try.

Latoya MzCeo2u

My first time experiencing a market like this.. there are so many options and a plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables

jo-lene szapowal

RANT: I've helped my cousin-in-law out at his stand on multiple holidays...let me just tell y'all...there's no heat and no ac in that 100+ yr old building. How are the vendors/employees supposed to get warm or cool...M,W,F,S&Sun from 7am til 6pm (most days), without pluging in a heater or fan...especially in the extreme Ohio 80°-90° + summer heat and -0° frigid winter temps?! Because let me tell you how many customers you are pulling in while they have to throw on an extra coat, scarf, gloves and winter cap or wear a neck fan and the lightest tank top known to man, AND after 90 min pay for parking just to have the privilege of shopping at a city market....0. Hell...the vendors are lucky if the 90+ yr old elevators are all even working for them to bring their product up from the basement cooling units to the sales floor! The venders pay rent, and rightfully expect their CITY OWNED stands to be brought up to code as codes change, for FREE! It's sad that it had to come to someone being hurt this bad before the city and city inspectors FINALLY GOT THE POINT! I know multiple vendors, personally, that have complained both verbally and in writing! Most vendors are having a hard enough time selling their raw (meat, dairy, produce...) product all while the city is selling the Westside Market as a tourist attraction... and now they have to deal with this as well. And the City wonders why the West Side Market is losing vendors, regular clientele and the charm of our WSM! Its a farmer's market... not a place for the tourist to traipse around and take social media pictures while eating candy and drinking smoothies.

Lonnie Foland

I have been going to the West Side Market for sixty years. The neighborhood has changed, however, the vendors in the market have not. Same produce, excellent produce and products, just different Generations selling it. The atmosphere is still the hustle and bustle of an Open Air Market. It is always crowded but that is part of the experience. You can grab a cup of coffee, a piece of Italian pastry then find a bench to sit down and enjoy it. The people change but the Market doesn't. I make it a weekly Adventure now.


I love this place and the number of vendor stalls filled with wonderful foods. This is unfortunately the style of shopping many people left behind for the super store. I always find things to try and share whether it is for a holiday, a week night, or a lazy weekend picnic. The open market feel and the old building give a nostalgic feel, as well as lends to the connection between food and the people we get it from.

Marcus Massey

A little pricey but the selection of fresh foods their is amazing

Dale Beck

What an awesome place, in a cool area of town. Such a wide variety of fresh produce, meats, baked goods and more. A must see if you’re visiting the Cleveland area! The building architecture is amazing as well. So much to see and take in. Give yourself plenty of time. Something here for everyone from the novice cook to chiefs. They have a small eatery inside that makes a great breakfast!

Sherm Stevens

Comparable to the North Market in Cbus, but much larger. There are all sorts of food vendors, ranging from bakeries to meat and seafood. There are numerous fresh produce vendors. You could literally walk around here all day. Beware parking is a challenge on weekends. There is a small $1 lot adjacent, and paid on-street parking nearby (with short time limits - not sure how aggressive the Cleveland meter maids are). Great location, just across the viaduct from downtown, with a view of the place where the Cavaliers play. Great place to hang out and enjoy a Sunday!

Cameron Taylor

Ok.....I absolutely have to give this place 5 stars! Why? Well..... everything is fresh right there. All the vendors are great and everything I got tasted like it was straight out of a fresh farmers market! Crowed, but my word, the place is terrific! No wonder it's always busy! Absolutely love coming here.... I'll visit alot more!

William Barnes

Foodie paradise! Bring at least $25 cash and get your favorite taste at each vendor. You will leave happy.

Cassondra Swaffield

Love love love! The food, the vendors, the atmosphere. They will haggle and get you a great price. It's so big with so many options. Always fresh. A must for visitors!!

Kevin RedBear

Ever since I was a little kid we went here for are fresh produce n meats this was are grocery store

Joe Jurec

Overall pretty great. Lots of excellent food and variety. Shady grape vendor w/ neck tat tried to pretend we gave him a $10 bill instead of a $20 though.

Anton Ludvik

All the hustle and bustle of an old world market nestled in the lively Ohio city neighborhood. I love coming here to get my spices or some niche food items that may be harder to find in the area. You'll definitely find great cuts of fresh meat and some dishes. The vegetable and fruit offering are too notch in the summer (and even through the winter months). Be prepared to battle through crowds on the weekend though as this is a popular shopping spot for everyone in the area.

Marianne Hoppel

Very friendly vendors. Wonderful selection of fruits and vegetables outside, and meats, pastries, cheeses and more inside. Best day to go is Wednesday because Friday and Saturday can be busy. Open year round. Been going there for over 40 years.


I've been regularly shopping at the WSM for over 35 years! You cannot beat their prices on vegetables and fruits, regardless of family size! Their meats are a bit pricey, but worth the cost due to the quality. Its best to establish a relationship by visiting the same vendors for food you buy on a regular basis. If you respectfully pick your own fruits and veggies, most vendors will allow you to do so. If you don't, always check your bag/purchase (esp fruits/veggies), before you leave the stand. I love it there! Whatever I plan to spend (budgeted), I always leave with some of that budgeted money in my pocket! Fresh, whole, live food!, and not at whole food prices! You really can't beat it!

Tiffany Oh

I come from a city with one of the most famous "markets" in America, and I feel like West Side Market is SO much better. It surprisingly doesn't stink (literally) at all. The general area around it outside adds to how great this market is. It has all sorts of ethnic cuisines available for sale (mainly European). I feel like this is mainly a meat and cheese market, though, so I would only recommend coming here for meats and/or cheeses. Pasta and baked goods are also common here. There's a produce section of the market, but I believe those vendors are scamming people in order to cover the costs of their deteriorating produce, so I choose not to support it. I can get better tropical fruits at an Asian grocery store. The best part is the view from the top. I don't think there's many markets out there in America that have such a great vantage point of their markets. I didn't see anything available for sampling, but oh well, it was interesting enough seeing all the unique items in the display cases.

Chris Irwin

Great atmosphere and a huge variety of fresh food. Historic place that shouldn't be missed.

Benjamin Bialorucki

The layout in the arcade is amazing. There are so many good shops i cant possibly list them all. The cafe was the bees knees. They had amazing specials and fantastic service!


Variety of items we go every Sunday morning before the Browns game grav some of the Cleveland spirit stop by the jerky stand its amazing the bread is fresh and Always leaving with bags of fresh fruit find your favorite dealer and they will take care of you each week.

rick cannici

This was my first time going to the market. I really enjoyed walking around and seeing all the fresh fruit, vegetables and meat. I do not live in Cleveland but if I did this would be a place I would shop at offten.

Nancy Carroll

Love this place. Great fun. I purchased meat. Great quality.

Kevin Weidrick

Amazing selection at affordable prices. And before you complain about parking, my wife and I had time to get all our shopping done, talk with vendors and a few random people we met about recipes, AND head across the street to the spice shop and browse and shop there at a leisurely pace. 90 minutes is plenty of time, and it's cheap after that anyways!


Every food imaginable!! So many people and cultures. It's a wonderful experience. Pack a cooler and ice to bring home meats and cheeses. The desserts are unlimited.

Hasnat Tareq

Historic site! Similar to Toronto's St Lawrence Market. West Side Market is the oldest operating indoor/outdoor market space in Cleveland. he market began operating in 1840, across the street from its current location. Most residents of the neighborhood, and many Clevelanders in general, still do a large portion of their shopping at the Market. The market is open to customers Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 7:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m., and Sundays from 12 p.m to 6:00 p.m.

Randy Noseworthy

Lots of fun navigating through the crowd, looking at the booths. Great place to find something fresh to cook.

Carol Arroyo

Fresh produce, meats and prepared foods along with all those hard to find spices!

Tim Milligan

It is an amazing place. It makes you hungry walking around the place. The produce looked so fresh. Looks like it cams straight from the garden

Brandon Glover

Awesome place. Anyone in Cleveland arena should check it out. Filled with fresh fruits and vegetables from all over the world. Pastries, deserts, pasta, meats, sausages, fish, candy, syrup, honey, or just about anything you can think of. Prices are marked but can be bartered. 90 minute free parking and $1 an hour after that. Free to enter. This one of my favorite spots in Cleveland

Karen Burns

Love this place, so many options. If you have time eat at the cafe....yummy

Ally G

This is one of my favorite places to go in Cleveland. Lots of different local food and vendors. It is a fun place to get a bite to eat and grab some pastries to enjoy later. Loved the building and atmosphere!

Sara Hoover

Such a cool historic site and fun place to shop. Great selection. Bring cash to go fast.

Caro Barb

I've been here numerous times. I don't see what all of the hype is about. Produce is always on the fringe. Not clean inside. I try to hold my breath the whole time because it smells like someone killed 10 cows before they opened. And the same vendors have the same stuff for the last 20 years. And now they have this fun little parking lot system with gates and tickets. Definitely not appealing.

Logan Lamonica

Such a great variety of fresh produce, meats, seafood, and baked goods. You can easily overspend here but it's worth it for the great food you can get. Sometimes it is a bit crowded which makes it hard to get around, but that just comes from the high demand for this place.


Walk around, check everything out before you buy. Some vendors offer way better deals than others with similar or better quality. DO NOT PARK ANYWHERE BUT IN WESTSIDE MARKETS PARKING LOT YOU WILL GET TOWED!!! $ 190.00 to get your car back

David Evanoff

I have come here through out the last 45 years of my life. And my experiences from childhood to my adult life have always been positive. The one thing that I can say that is different now versus then is the smell. It's smells better now than it did in the early 70's

alicia lynn

Loved walking through and the smells of the fresh foods shopping was a blast I am going back more often for fresh meats and veggies

Amy Myklebust

Great place to try out a myriad of foods. I got a variety of desserts from Eurosweets and holy moly were they good! The Macron's, cakes and other sweets I tried were out of this world! This is a great place to take the little ones or those visiting Cleveland!

Ravi Yelleswarapu

Lots of different food, samples and things to try. There are two parts to this. The first is a market on the left side with produce. Everyone was super friendly and gave lots of samples without any pressure to buy. The actual market had a ton of options to choose from sweet foods like apple fritters to meats, cheeses, crepes. I got the pita wrap from the back of the market which was kind of hidden. The falafel was really good but could have been spicier. Several of the shops had huge lines and it's a good place to sample and share different foods.

Beth Sherer

Nice indoor market. It can be a little overwhelming your first couple times, especially on a weekend, but I always end up with some delicious finds.

Simon Dickinson

Really good little market, with lots of goodies available. Just one very good coffee stall, so get ready to queue.

Lavonne Fabregas

Beautiful fruits and vegetables... scrumptious pastries... fabulous selection of meats. Wishing I had brought a cooler to transport choices for dinner back to Columbus. Better planning for next visit. Coffee and almond croissants did make the trip!

William Siggers

Love shopping there. Get all my meats. Stock up for one month

Matt Walters

Awesome assortment of many different types of food! Delicious meat of all kinds, bakery items, snacks, desserts, drinks and of course fresh fruit and vegetables. Great prices.

Kathryn Moton

Westside Market is a historic landmark and so beautiful! Food and vendors are amazing!

Thomas Lang

One of my favorite places in Cleveland. Highly reccomend getting fruit by the fruit vendors, apple fritters, bratwurst sandwiches (great for lunch), meat sticks, as well the plethora of fresh food and raw meat selection for cooking. An amazing piece of Cleveland’s history.

Max Couch

Great deals, great selections, everyone was very friendly. The produce people are a little aggressive, but that didn't ruin anything.

Nyte flyte Entertainment

If you want food that is absolutely the freshest this is the place to buy. Lots of varieties of meat vegetables and anything else you would need to make a great meal at home

Jennifer Kay Jeter

Been going since I was a child. Great vendors and foodstuffs. So much to see around the market in Ohio City.

Katherine Angell

I’m allergic to everything however I am able to come here and enjoy just about anything because of the simple ingredients. Thank you from this Texas girl.

Christian Fernandez

Great selection of meats from local Butchers. I also tried the Frank's Bratwurst stand and they were some of the best brats I've had in my life. Definitely recommend checking it out

Izabela Black

The market was great, overall, but insanely hot. The fresh fruit and vegetables were grossely overpriced but there were quite a lot of vendors to choose from. My husband enjoyed all the butchers, I liked the cheese and fish vendors and we both agreed we would probably live at the Latin food vendor. If we lived in Cleveland (we were just visiting), we would probably come here at least biweekly...but not for the fruits or veggies. And for the love of all that is good, get some ventilation into that building.

If you're near downtown Cleveland, West Side Market is a must visit spot. Whether it's for lunch or to find something to make for dinner. It's an amazing place.

MaryLuz Sierra

Great market! Beautiful , vibrant colorful and well organized produce! Great place to try readymade treats or meals! Definitely coming back when we return to Cleveland!

Rebecca Burford

I am giving only three stars due to the produce section. Over priced and was given wrong change twice. Inside is nice, meats and cheeses are good and priced fairly. Probably will not be going back anytime soon. Fresh Thyme has better produce and prices, a wonderful meat section and won't short change you. I will be going there instead.

William Kethman

This place has an excellent array of fresh produce and specialty meats. You can enjoy several appetizing meals while enjoying the unique ambiance. This location has clean public restrooms and parking for the first 90 minutes is free. It is $1 for every hour after 90 minutes. This is a great experience we will be back again!

Stan Levenger

Always look forward to visiting this market. Usually visit in conjunction with a visit to neighboring venues like Great Lakes or Market Garden. Always find excellent fresh food including meats, pasta, vegetables, fruits and other items such as coffee/ tea. Great neighborhood with abundant savory foods in numerous close by restaurants.

Valerie Conner

All kinds of foods. Identifies Cleveland as a big city and melting pot. Super interesting. A little pricy and not open every day.

Randy Thatcher

Amazing place! So much offered for everyone. Go and spend the day and hit some of the local breweries within waking distance.

Steve Laird

The Restaurant was so good, the food and service was top notch. The atmosphere was campy and fun. Kathi was saucy, and a good time.

Connie Young

Amazing variety of fresh meats, fish and produce...just about any variety available for reasonable prices

Jordan Nelson

The west side market was a great and unique experience. Parking is extremely convenient. The crowd can get a little overwhelming on the inside but it can be worth it. Fresh meat, produce, baked goods, and much more

Christopher Bucknor

Great historic building and architecture, get there early to beat the crowd, especially on the weekends. Variety is found at each venue however discerning the best quality will take time. Due diligence is suggested, and do visit on a empty stomach.

Andrew Hart

The market was such a cool experience! It was great to see people of a major city come out to support local farmers. Prices were very affordable, and I would return.

West Side Market is definitely going through some changes. The vendors have thinned out and some of my personal favorites are ones that have left. Nonetheless, WSM is a great place to find meats, cheese, and seafood, especially difficult to find items.

What can I say about this fixture of Cleveland that hasn't already been said? I've been coming here since my grandfather used to bring me here many years ago. There's something for everyone! Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, fish, baked goods, specialty items such as stuffed olives and vegetarian burritos. The best place to get kielbasa, jerky, sausage and turkey smokies is Czuchraj Meats at stand#'s B-10 & B-11 and J&J Meats at stand# B-6. They're the same family. :) If you haven't been to the West Side Market yet, you need to add this to your bucket list. It's worth even coming down to check out all of the stands!

It's getting better but do not buy meat or veggies from here at any vendor, it all goes bad very quickly. The restaurants/small shops are good for coffee or small sandwiches

Jim Leo

Always a fun place to go you can find anything you want there

Kimberly Chambers

Anything and everything you can imagine can be found here. Friendly, courteous service.


Wonderful variety of produce, cheeses, meats, desserts and all kinds of other goodies. This place is great for everyone. If you have a nose for cooking, come for a creative experience to draw inspiration for your next dish. If your looking for ready to eat or easy to prepare food, most of the vendors can give helpful tips and suggestions. I love the west side market!

Kimberly Shroyer

Such a fantastic atmosphere! Love getting fresh and delicious meats and food. Highly recommend the Pork Chop Shop. Christmas ale bacon and cinnamon chipotle chops. Mmmmm.

Kevin Hawkins

Great to see so many people there. Great selection of foods. The great thing is you get to discuss your choices with the owners of the stands. Great experience.

Janene Marie

Slightly overwhelming but SO much good stuff! We got amazing scallion hummus. We also got katamala olive and artichoke hummus. We bought pizza bagels, bacon, Chicago hot dogs, fruit and veggies! Wish we had some place like this closer to home.

Nathan Sparks

Great combination of vendors. Could find pretty much anything you could want to cook an amazing meal. But also has a lot of great vendors to get something to nibble on while you peruse.

Rafael Avila

Great market! Lots of fresh foods. And a great little falafel shop tucked away in a corner there!

Domonik Amegashie

Love this place but go to a vendor who let's you see the produce you buy. They get shady with giving you too ripe produce

Sayoni Dutta

It's a beautifully located indoor market! It's in the heart of Cleveland. Although some of their veggies and fruits were a bit overpriced... their meat selection was exquisite. I found goat meat there and it was 'EPIC' !!!! I definitely recommend visiting this place. There are a number of eateries here. I loved a Mediterranean stall inside the market! The chicken schwarma and falafel were some of the best ones I tried!!

Esmeralda Jacobs

I love the vintage feel of the atmosphere. The staff are friendly and amazing. And the food is delicious, filling and comforting. I didn't get a chance to walk the market itself, but I am looking forward to visiting again in the near future!

Scott Gorris

First timer . Wow what can I say. Next time I'll take my cooler. Every thing there is phenomenal. Next trip I'll fill up my freezer.
