What an awesome place, in a cool area of town. Such a wide variety of fresh produce, meats, baked goods and more. A must see if you’re visiting the Cleveland area! The building architecture is amazing as well. So much to see and take in. Give yourself plenty of time. Something here for everyone from the novice cook to chiefs.
