Sunday at the West Side Market

A couple Sundays ago, my hubby and daughter and I wanted to get out of the house, so we went to the West Side Market.  I could spend a fortune at this place in cheese and olives alone. But, I didn't.  In fact, I think I managed to leave without buying anything this time.  My hubby did buy some different homemade breads.  My daughter bought two apple fritters for herself and my son.  She also bought a huge pink, glittery meringue thing, a honey stick and a beef stick.  My hubby also bought some bacon wrapped mozzarella balls that we ate with dinner that night.  I will soon be on a mission to try to duplicate something like them! Hmmmm. . . . .

I have a friend who routinely buys her bacon at the market and believe me, they have some amazing bacon!  If you've never tried Christmas Ale bacon, you definitely should!

If you are unfamiliar with the West Side Market, it is a market in Cleveland that has been around for over 100 years.  You can find almost anything imaginable there from bulk grains to chicken feet, whole pigs, every type of bacon you can imagine, escargot, fresh fish and sausage to organic veggies, flowers and honey.  There are farm fresh eggs, fresh buttermilk, cheeses from all over the world, a stand that has countless hot sauces, a gyro stand that always has a line that goes around their end of the building.  They are closed on Sundays, though.  There is every type of bakery item and countless other things that I'm not remembering right now.

And of course, no afternoon at the market would be complete without going into one of the breweries or restaurants that surround the market in Ohio City.
