Cleveland has more visitors than ever these days, and often these out-of-towners are in need of a little local direction. We could list thousands of places to take a Cleveland rookie — and we have — but if you don’t make the West Side Market your first stop, you’re doing it wrong. It’s a wholly unique experience, combining the best of the old and new worlds on the North Shore. And while many of us around here stop in to pick up produce for the week or a good cut of meat for an evening meal, the place is also a feast for the eyes and a good place to grab a snack before hitting all the other necessary Cleveland stops.
