Resident Recipes from SCA West Side Market Challenge

For more than 100 years, the West Side Market in Ohio City has been providing the Cleveland community with fresh meat and seafood, fruits and vegetables, baked goods, dairy and cheese products, and so much more. Vendors offer local and global ingredients, some of which can be difficult to find elsewhere in the city.

This year, we wanted to create an opportunity for residents to explore the market, and to share recipes and meals together. We also wanted to support the market itself and the vendors that work so hard to provide the city with these goods. We launched our West Side Market Challenge in November, asking a number of residents at Fairmont Creamery, Wagner Awning, Mueller Lofts, and The Tappan to take a $25 gift certificate, provided by Team SCA, and to shop the market for local ingredients that they could use to create their favorite dish.

This week and next, we will be sharing the residents' recipes here and on our Instagram. We hope you'll follow along, try some of these at home yourself, and help us select the best dish. The winner of our West Side Market Challenge will win a $100 gift certificate for the market!
