The Fresh Market Package at The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland

CLEVELAND, OHIO – May 7, 2019 – Celebrating the city’s unique culinary scene, The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland invites travelers and locals to enjoy an unforgettable foodie experience through its Fresh Market package. The interactive experience features a chef-guided exploration of the city’s spectacular West Side Market, followed by the ultimate adventure in cooking-with-the-chef. This limited-time seasonal culinary offering is available from May to November 2019.

The Fresh Market package at The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland allows guests the opportunity to enjoy a private breakfast with the hotel chef, collaborating in the creation of a lunchtime menu and farmers’ market shopping list. Guests then will join the chef at Cleveland’s legendary West Side Market to select meal provisions from a blocks-long showcase of the region’s finest fresh produce, meats, spices and ethnic specialties. Strolling from vendor to vendor alongside the chef, guests will survey fresh seasonal flavors, examine diverse cuts of meat, sample foods that pique their interest, talk one-on-one with purveyors, and discuss their finalized lunch plans with the chef.

After the market tour, guests can send their culinary acquisitions back to the hotel, while they continue to explore the market’s fascinating surrounding neighborhood. Their hand-selected food purchases will be washed, trimmed, prepped and waiting for them at the hotel, in time for lunch preparation. Upon their mid-morning return to the hotel, guests will suit up in Ritz-Carlton aprons and join the chef and his team in preparing their dream lunch together in the hotel kitchen – to be followed by presentation of the finalized meal in TURN Bar + Kitchen. Prior to departing, guests also can have any remaining market purchases washed, wrapped and ready to take home for further enjoyment.

Priced from $599 USD per night, the Fresh Market package at The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland is presented through November 3, 2019 and includes:
