CLEVELAND — Cleveland’s beloved and iconic West Side Market has been nominated for the title of the Best Public Market by USA Today's 10Best panel.

Opening to shoppers on Nov. 2, 1912, the West Side Market is Cleveland’s oldest continuously operated locally-owned market. Built to replace the Pearl Street Market, located on the opposite corner since 1840, it was one of three public markets in Cleveland that served the city’s growing immigrant populations in the early 20th century.

Voting for the Best Public Market ends on Monday, April 12 at noon ET. The top 10 winners, determined by the most votes, will be announced on Friday, April 23.
