West Side Market Continuing With Improvements

(Cleveland) - Improvements are continuing at the iconic West Side Market, despite what the City of Cleveland says are challenges presented this year due to the pandemic.

The City of Cleveland has met with a consultant, and is in the process of finalizing a contract. Currently, a new vendor booth prototype is under construction, new arcade doors are to be installed in 2021, and bids are also expected for electrical upgrades, and design for a meat preparation room.

Tenants, during this time, worked with the city to offer orders by phone or online with curbside pickup.

The city hadn't mentioned this before now. In April, because of the increase in cases of coronavirus, the city deferred rent payments at the West Side Market for April, May, and June. To further help struggling tenants, the city ultimately forgave rent payments for those three months.

This week, the Market will be open Wednesday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., New Year's Eve 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will be closed on New Year's Day.
