One thing is for sure; the city offers some amazing spaces, great architecture and interesting places. We live only 40 miles away from Cleveland and manage to go downtown every once in a while. When we do, discovering the food it has to offer has to be top on our list.
The food doesn't have to just come from a restaurant either. As a matter of fact, visiting its city market is one of my favorite places to go. With roots going back to the 1840's - this market boasts of not only great food, but is full of history as well. I end up feasting with my eyes as well as my appetite.
A city market does so much for the local economy. It provides small businesses great opportunities to thrive and grow. It provides an outlet for small farmers and gardeners who need to sell produce. It encourages artisanal foods and recaptures old world methods of growing, baking, cooking and eating.
It really is a center and a gathering place for young and old alike to celebrate ethnic heritages, great food and learn new traditions.
What's your favorite town or city market space? Blessings!
