I try to take out of town visitors here for a real taste of Baltimore. I think most would be drawn by Faidley's crabcakes, but I also suggest venturing out into the market to get a look at the local color. Sometimes there is live music here and that makes for excellent people watching. Personally, I swear by the fries... More

I visited Lexington Market with my daughter and son in law on a freezing January Saturday morning. They had visited before and so I knew what to expect. We really enjoyed our visit despite appearing to be the only tourists around ! The locals were friendly and we felt most welcome! We went for the crab cakes but ended up... More

Ok, so I went to the renowned Lexington Market yesterday with my sister and brother in law and it is well worth the trip if you have never been. There is is a wide variety of places to eat ranging from Chinese food to the classic crab cake and fresh shucked oysters. Its also a great venue to buy specialty... More

Even walking here from downtown was an experience. Seedy part of town, though on a saturday morning it did not feel unsafe. I think most of the reviewers , myself included, went there for Faidleys. There was nothing else that stood out, just an ordinary local market, certainly not catering to tourists. Nonetheless, this was an opportunity to be in... More

Neat place to emerge yourself in the life of the locals. Plenty of stalls to find something tastes to eat. Very interesting market, worth the trip if you don't mind the urban hustle and bustle!!!

I guess we were expecting our experience to be more like the Farmers Market in Philadelphia...It wasn't! Crowded with scary crowds. It was very dirty appearing and frantic. The best part was leaving.

As a foodie I watch travelchannel on a regular base and saw Lexington market on one of the shows. So I had to visit when i was over from europe for work. When we walked from inner harbour to the market we noticed that we were not going to a better part of town. We didnt feel unsafe but we... More

First of all, the market has an interesting history - 230 years worth. The main reason we visited was to eat at Faidley's Seafood, which has excellent crab cakes. They are a bit expensive at $15, but they taste excellent and are of decent size. The nice thing is that they have dozens of other food stalls that you can... More

We were in Baltimore and decided to visit Lexington Market. We're fans of Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia and figured this was similar. It's an indoor market like Reading Terminal, but that's the end of the similarities. Where RT is bright and clean with varied vendors and even the charm of Amish food stalls, Lexington seems dirty and has a... More

Great place to walk around, be at one with nature and art. Art fest 9/20 and 21. Would love to spend more time there.
