CLEVELAND – Shoppers, vendors and employees forced to bundle up at Cleveland’s West Side Market are hoping a solution to cold temperatures inside the market will soon be found.
Cleveland Councilman Joe Cimperman believes he may have found an answer.
Cimperman told NewsChannel5 he believes he found the funding need to improve conditions at the market.
“I’m working with the city finance director to tap into a reserve ‘rainy day fund’ that must be kept in the market’s budget,” explained Cimperman. “It could provide $900,000, if approved in the city budget, [which] could be used to make critical upgrades, and improve heating at the West Side Market.”
West Side Market shoppers like Brian Beuoy reports temperatures inside the market have dropped below 35 degrees, driving away business, and forcing customers and vendors to bundle up.
“People are wearing scarves and hats and winter gloves, just like you’re going outside, said Beuoy. “I mean it’s kind of ridiculous.”

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
