Ohio City

West Side Market - Photo Bob Perkoski

No Cleveland community, perhaps, is evolving as quickly as Ohio City. In the blink of an eye, residents have watched W. 25th transform from a partially developed neighborhood main street to a bona fide entertainment district filled to the gills with bars, restaurants and shops. Anchored by the 100-year-old West Side Market, this near-west community has always been food-focused, but joining those farm-to-table bistros, urban farm plots and farmers markets are most of the city’s new craft breweries. Epicenter for the so-called hipster movement, Ohio City is walkable, bike-friendly and diverse, making it a natural choice for today’s makers and artisans who are cobbling together a livelihood one flea market at a time.
