Cleveland's West Side Market: 100 Years and Still Cooking


Cleveland's West Side Market: 100 Years and Still Cooking Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clevelands West Side Market is a matchless culinary and cultural resource, a nationally significant architectural treasure, and part of the citys distinctive urban landscape. In continuous use since it opened in 1912, the market is among the oldest municipally owned and operated retail food arcades and one of only a handful of such places left in the country. The book chronicles the history of this notable landmark and all it offers consumers and culinary aficionados. Written by two well-known Cleveland food writers, the book takes readers on a nostalgic tour of the market building, outdoor arcades, and into the lives of many vendors and market families who are the true foundation of this historic public space. The volume is rich with many rare, and until now unpublished, vintage and contemporary photographs, and images that provide a delightful armchair tour of this magnificent landmark, which is a must-see destination for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.
