Five generations later, Dave’s Supermarket is still feeding the needs of Cleveland
Need soda and tonic? Those are located on Aisle Carnegie. Granola bars? Walk on over to Aisle St. Clair. Foil pans? You can snag those on Aisle Prospect. On the surface, a Cleveland-area supermarket naming their aisles after local streets is a smile-inducing novelty. But this isn’t your run-of-the-mill supermarket. This is the newly opened Dave’s Market & Eatery on E. 61st St. and Chester Ave. in Midtown—an ambitious venture that simultaneously honors a storied past, addresses the current needs of the community, and lays the groundwork for a vibrant future.
7 things to know about Dave’s Market and Eatery opening in Midtown
CLEVELAND, Ohio – The family brain trust behind Dave’s Markets looked carefully for years for a new East Side location. They mulled half a dozen spots before deciding on E. 61st Street and Chester Avenue. The long-standing, family-owned Cleveland grocery's Midtown location opens 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27. Walk in to Dave's Market and Eatery, and it's clear the company didn’t just build utilitarian shelves, toss up a couple of signs, and call it a day. It's the latest in the evolution of Dave's, which began with Alex Saltzman's fruit stand almost 100 years ago.

This Dave's is different. CLEVELAND — Dave's Market, the local staple in small grocery shopping, is ready for its Midtown debut. But this one isn't your standard grocery store. It's not even the Dave's you've come to know as a Northeast Ohioan. You won't find the same checkered store signs, and fried chicken is no longer your main option when it comes to prepared foods.
