Produce Vendors, 1962

The last names of these West Side Market produce vendors indicate their ethnic background: Palmisano, Tramer, Gentile, Calabrese, Schilla, Marellno, Bondi, Winneman, Guinta, Rini, Fritchie, and Cianciolo. Indeed, many vendors were immigrants who viewed opening a market stand as the best opportunity for creating a lasting family business in Cleveland.
