Cleveland’s West Side Market Tenants Association reports at least three popular stands at the market will close by the end of the year.

Association President Vince Bertonaschi told News 5 growing vendor rent costs imposed by the City of Cleveland and parking problems are partly to blame.

Bertonaschi said sales at the West Side Market are down by some 50% in some cases, and without a rent reduction he expects more stands to close in 2017.

“They are ruining a Cleveland icon, they’re ruining it,” said Bertonaschi.

“You’re going to lose more than four stands.  It’s a domino effect. I had that at the Central Market, I know.”
