Foster's Meats in Cleveland's West Side Market to reopen after fire

CLEVELAND - A West Side Market vendor will open on Wednesday for the first time since the fire on Jan. 30.

The early morning fire severely damaged Sebastian's Meats and Foster's Meats, and coated other stands in soot. The main building of Cleveland's historic market reopened on Feb. 18 after a thorough cleaning from a disaster recovery company.

"The fire was just hard to even explain with words. I mean, I felt like after seeing my stand, the ground just disappeared under me," said owner of Sebastian's Andrei Ramaso. His stand was back to business at a different location in March.

On Wednesday, Foster's Meats will finally be back open, according to Ohio City Incorporated.

Owner Brian Foster opened the stand, which was known for a mounted steer head, in 2002. It sells beef, lamb and goat.
