What: A public market that draws customers from the greater Cleveland area.

Why it Works:

Built in 1902, this market’s European ambiance helps draw shoppers from the greater Cleveland area. The market is home to over 120 tenants selling produce, meats, bakery, fish, spices, sauces, and some prepared food. 2002 marks the 90th anniversary of the market. It is the place to shop if you are a new citizen to Cleveland or have lived here for 80 years. Families come to experience the market and children as well as adults enjoy their shopping experience. People get to know their butcher, the man or woman selling their produce, and get quality products. The market is well kept and very clean. It is a safe place to shop and experience a little bit of Europe. Tours are scheduled on a regular basis, especially with local schools and senior/retirement homes.
