Mayor Jackson Announces City of Cleveland to Forgive Three Months’ Rent for West Side Market Tenants

In early April 2020 – at the height of the coronavirus pandemic – the City of Cleveland deferred the April, May and June rental payments for West Side Market (WSM) tenants. In an effort to help further mitigate our tenants’ financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic the City has determined it will forgive rental payments for April, May and June.

We value our relationships with our tenants and encourage the public to patronize these small businesses. The West Side Market is fully stocked with food essentials. The West Side Market adjusted its hours of operation to Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.​ During WSM hours, customers can contact individual vendors to place an order and make arrangements for payment and pick up at one of the designated areas. Designated pickup areas are the loading dock behind the main building entrance and on Lorain Avenue, along the North side of the main building. Both areas are available for 15-minute pick-up and drop-off. Arrangements must be made before pickup. Customers must contact each WSM vendor directly to place an order.
