Vendors at the West Side Market have been working around the clock getting ready for their big opening on Monday.
The West Side Market opened its doors Monday morning for business.
The Market had been closed for weeks after a fire on Jan. 30th.
Happy customers filled the aisles of the West Side Market looking for their favorite breads or meats or pick up a hearty breakfast.
Customers are thrilled the market is back open and missed everything about it.
"All of the different people and cultures and all the different foods, the variety, the camaraderie of everybody. I just like it this way," said customer, Tina Bates.
Yael Timock came in from Independence. She's been coming to the market since she was a young girl and now considers it a family tradition.
"I was here at 7 a.m. we came when the doors opened. This is my favorite stand. I come here all the time every Saturday," said Timock.
It was a long wait to get back in.
"I am so excited these are my two favorite stations. I was hoping they were here this morning and me and my daughter got up early to get here," said customer, Debbie Matthews.
Vendors are hoping for a big crowd to help recover some of their losses.
