I'm loving going back to see all the pictures from my trip to Cleveland thanks to Positively Cleveland. I love remembering all the fun we had!
West Side Market - which is like Findlay Market but - oh yeah - 10x bigger!!! I've heard about it from other Cleveland-goers but had no idea what I was walking into. It's housed in an old terminal similar to Cinci's Union Terminal Museum Center.
The first walk thru section is FULL of fruits, vegetables and flowers. It's sooooo bright and colorful! The difference here compared to Findlay Market is that all the fruit & vege people are basically selling the same thing all together. You kinda feel like you're walking through Cancun near the people trying to braid your hair - "Hey pretty girl - come see my tomatoes." - um calm down buddy!
Then once you're through this area - you walk into this ginormous building -
This was a friend that I saw at the Pork Chop Shop - I couldn't resist taking his picture - especially since I have a couple of vegetarian friends! haha
I came home with meat sticks and cupcakes - yes!
And seriously - those sunflowers!!!
It's also where two other famous people are laid to rest - first is the James Garfield monument (top middle & right). I had been to William Henry Harrison's tomb fairly recently and it pales in comparison. This was definitely beautiful and stately.
The other was John D. Rockefeller (left & bottom middle) - and there's a legend that if you put a dime on the headstone it will bring you good fortune. Well John - STILL WAITING!
The fun thing about all of these stops was that they were all free. No matter what your budget - you can find something interesting and unique in any city you're in!
Thanks again to Positively Cleveland for the trip - they were amazing all weekend!
