In 2012, the historic West Side Market, Cleveland's Public Market, will celebrate its 100th year in its current building, designed by Hubbell and Benes. Today, the West Side Market continues to anchor the historic Ohio City neighborhood and is seen as a regional cultural asset with over 1 million visitors annually. In honor of this Centennial year, the City of Cleveland, United West Side Market Tenants Association and Ohio City Incorporated, along with other civic, cultural and business leaders have joined forces to organize a year-long series of events to commemorate this significant milestone.
Please join us as we call much deserved attention to Cleveland's Public Market and consider committing to our strategic partnership as a Centennial Sponsor or making a donation to the West Side Market Centennial Fund.
