Cleveland’s Westside Market, one of the city’s treasures, suffered a fire about a week ago and has been closed for cleanup and repair since then. It is scheduled to reopen later this week pending the completion of the cleanup and inspection. In January 2012, two friends and I spent a day there shooting photos. My post on January 13, 2012, Faces of the Market, included photos of some of the market’s vendors and booths. I also shot many of the market’s shoppers and today I’ll post photos of some of them.
The market is a model of diversity, both in terms of food variety, ethnic choices and shoppers.
