Video: The West Side Market Never Looked So Beautiful




It's easy to take the West Side Market for granted, even if you love it as much as we do. Which is why we loved this short film about Cleveland's grand institution. It brings the majesty and vibrancy of the market into stark view, capturing the landmark's beautiful and lyrical and simple and busy existence. And it's making us hungry.
