Cleveland's West Side Market: 100 Years & Still CookingCleveland's West Side Market: 100 Years & Still Cooking

by Dame Marilou Suszko and Laura Taxel
The West Side Market is a rare culinary and cultural resource, a nationally significant architectural treasure, and part of Cleveland's distinctive urban landscape. In continuous use since it opened in 1912, it's among the oldest municipally owned and operated retail food arcades and one of only a handful of such places left in the country. This book chronicles the history of this notable Cleveland landmark and all it offers consumers and culinary aficionados. 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 market. 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. Many of the stories and memories captured in this book include personal family histories told here for the first time. The volume is rich with many never before published vintage and contemporary photographs and images that create an delightful armchair tour of this magnificent landmark and a must see destination for food lovers no matter where they live.
