Alesci’s embraces family traditions. If it’s not already apparent by the third generation of brothers who co-manage the deli and grocer, it shimmers to the surface in the stories of old regulars and those who remember Grandpa Frank Alesci. Starting with Frank, and now for more than 50 years, the Alesci family has curated a collection of imported products, providing immigrants with the sought-after goods from across the pond. Beyond that, it’s a place for fresh, crusty bread, pizza, a myriad of cheeses, and deli meats sliced by hand. Inside the 7,000-square-foot location, shelves are lined with everything from polenta to biscotti, olives to olive oil, and peppers who share space with their natural enemy: the tomato.

The North Union Farmers Market began in 1995 as a small market—back then, more than 500 hungry customers shopped the stalls of only six local farmers. Today, the market coordinates eight certified-producer farmers’ markets around Cleveland, allowing farmers to sell their products—from fresh, seasonal produce to meat, syrup, eggs, and dairy—directly to residents. The planet-friendly concept reduces the energy used for transportation and maximizes the freshness of the food.

The red brick storefront of Murray Hill Market looks much the same as it did in 1922 when the building started out as a corner store where locals could stock up on snacks and sundries. Today, owner Michele Iacobelli Buckholtz brings that same type of old-fashioned hospitality to her market and sandwich counter, where you can munch on fresh sandwiches stacked with prime rib roast beef, fresh salmon, or the eatery's signature eggplant parmesan. The menu also features meat-free options for vegan and vegetarian diets, including chopped salads tossed with fresh veggies or portobello subs slathered with vegan mayo. You can also grab everyday items like fruit, laundry detergent, and Jeni's ice cream to make sure you never run out of the essentials you need to get through the season or just next week.

Chiro Cleveland's massage therapists have one primary focus for their patients?their' muscles. According to the family-owned and operated clinic, dysfunctional muscles are the most common cause for neck and back pain, which sends a signal to the brain that it should be addressed. To treat muscle tension, Chiro Cleveland often uses effective massage techniques. Each patient is examined by a highly-trained and skilled medical massage therapist to identify potential causes of pain. Once located, the source of pain is administered with targeted massage therapy, ranging from a rigorous deep tissue massage to softer approaches. Aiming to make every patient feel healthy and renewed, therapists also outline post-treatment procedures for quicker pain relief.

When Frank Cangemi first opened Miles Famers Market in 1971, it was a seasonal, open-air market that only sold fresh fruits and vegetables. Frank would arrive at the Northern Ohio Food Terminal at 3 a.m. every day and proceed to hand select his stock of fresh produce, carefully choosing veggies without bruises and punting overly ripe cantaloupes. This hand selection and attention to detail is something he still does to this day, even though Miles Farmers Market has expanded to a 21,000-square-foot shopping space that also houses a deli, a butcher, and a bakery.

Its cheese department hosts more than 400 varieties of cheese, which complement varietals from a wine section that Wine Spectator hailed as “outstanding.” Its bistro not only makes up quick bites but also full dinners to go. Its staffers help foodies navigate the aisles and are on hand to offer tips that range from how to ripen an unfamiliar fruit to how to successfully wash food in the dishwasher.

Yet, even with all of this, it’s the dedication to having the best produce that really draws in shoppers. For more than 40 years, Miles has fostered partnerships with local produce growers such as Burnham, Spiegelberg, and Rittman Orchards, as well as Ohio Fruit Growers. These alliances allow for a vast selection of organic and local produce that may have been ripening on the vine or stalk seven hours before hitting store shelves.
