Because the addition of the electron into the products cause the ions to aggregate into solids, which will accumulate on the electrode that's in the solution- so you're making more of the inert substance.
Ions will form at the electrode where the ion concentration is lower in order to reach equilibrium. In a concentration cell, the reactants and products are the same ions except their concentrations; hence, the product ions form at the side with the lower ion concentration.
