University of Akron Press
In Seattle, people swear by Pike Place Market. In the Big Apple, native New Yorkers trek to Zabar's. In Northeast Ohio, everyone salivates at the thought of West Point Market's killer brownies. West Point Market, a market like no other, packs 350 varieties of cheese, 3,000 different wines, and 8,200 international gourmet items into 25,000 square feet of sheer culinary heaven. Family-owned since 1936, the Market's national reputation for quality and panache attracts professional chefs, party planners, gastronomic connoisseurs, and anyone who savors a dish that adds spice to life, literally.
Russ Vernon began working at his fathers West Point Market at the age of eight. He retired as chairman in 2006, but has continued to play an active role in the store. Among his many honors, the Small Business Administration named him Small Business Person of the year.
