CLEVELAND, OH — There’s nothing like visiting a market filled with skilled local folks and scanning their stalls for the freshest and most exceptional local products.

These three Cleveland markets are summer fun for everyone, whether you’re out for shopping or just browsing around.

West Side Market

Located at 1979 W 25th St, this 100-year market has been Cleveland’s oldest continuously functioning municipally-owned market, has anchored the historic Ohio City neighborhood, and a favorite not only for locals but also tourists from out of town.

It was one of three public markets in Cleveland that were built to replace the Pearl Street Market, which had been located on the opposite corner since 1840. The American Planning Association designated the West Side Market as one of the “10 Great Public Places in America” in 2008.

This indoor European-style market has a wide array of vendors where you can buy plenty of foods such as bratwurst sandwiches, handmade pierogi, or Parisian-style savory crepe.

Asia Plaza

Located at 2999 Payne Ave, Asia Plaza is the heart of Cleveland’s Chinatown. This place houses 20 tenants who offer a wide range of products and services to the Asian community as well as tourists. This plaza was created in 1988 by John Louie, who believed that Greater Cleveland could support an Asian Market.

North Union Farmers Market

North Union Farmers Market is a weekly market where every item is produced or grown by local farmers. Find them at Shaker Square or Crocker Park and savor the taste of locally-grown products.
