West Side Market

Market is a building type dated from antiquity. It is basically a shed that covers where the trade happens. In the case of the West Side Market, its main hall is a decorated shed which is enclosed to provide comfort for people using the market throughout the year. When I first saw this beautiful room with the vaulted roof and a giant ornate clock, I actually thought it was the grand lobby for a train station before. While many old building types fail to survive in the modern days, the old markets manage to provide a weekly fun experience to everyone. Shopping at Whole Foods Markets is nothing like shopping here.
