These photographs, celebrating Cleveland, Ohio’s West Side Market, were made by Barney Taxel for the book Cleveland’s West Side Market: 100 Years & Still Cooking by Marilou Suszko and Laura Taxel (University of Akron Press, 2012).
The West Side Market is home to over one hundred small businesses and is one of
the oldest continuously operating food markets in the country. The West Side Market is a local,
regional, and national treasure, championing great architectural design, entrepreneurism, cultural diversity, and most of all- fantastic food.
