Day 88 - West Side Market

Since my boys are home this week for Spring Break, I decided that today we'd have a little adventure.

After lunch we hopped on the Rapid (commuter train in Cleveland) and head into the city to the West Side Market

I loved taking the boys on the Rapid and to the Market! 

They were thrilled to ride the train - the whole trip they were reading the "red-line" map, enjoying the scenery, and watching the people - there was not a single whine the entire time!  They were enthralled! 

The West Side Market is Cleveland oldest publicly owned market. There is SO much to ro see...all kinds of meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood, baked goods, cheese, and fresh flowers. And, the Market is filled with a wide variety of cultural and ethnic diversity!  We shopped for some fresh produce, (the boys insisted that we get "baby bananas" and a plum) and got some chicken (from a local farm) for dinner.  They were excited to go the the second floor and see a view of all the "stands" from above, they asked tons of questions!

It was such a great afternoon and so fun to take advantage of the sights and sounds of a local history and traditions!

Happy Spring Cleveland!
