Overview

Cleveland’s West Side Market is a matchless culinary and cultural resource, a nationally significant architectural treasure, and part of the city’s distinctive urban landscape. In continuous use since it opened in 1912, the market is also among the oldest municipally owned and operated retail food arcades. Cleveland’s West Side Market: 100 Years and Still Cooking chronicles the history of this notable landmark and all it offers consumers and culinary aficionados. Readers will discover foods, traditions, and family rituals that were started and nurtured at the Market and enjoy humorous, touching, and sometimes bawdy stories of what it was like to grow up, grow old, and carve out a living at the Market. The volume is rich with many rare, and until now unpublished, vintage and contemporary photographs and images that provide a delightful armchair tour of this magnificent landmark, which is a must-see destination for food lovers, no matter where they live.

    Great history.

    Love all the details that went into the planning of this historic building. The biography of all the vendors were extremely interesting and well written. The pictures through out the book are wonderful and for some of us bring back many memories. Highly recommended!!
