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.

The market is very old for US buildings, it says 1782 outside. The market is large and has an array of cooked and fresh foods, many fried chicken outlets with inviting aromas, soul food and sushi stalls. There’s plenty of meat, fish and vegetable stalls also. It seems Faildley's is popular. The day we were there a blues band played... More

Frankly, I wouldn't enter Lexington Market if it weren't for Faidley's Seafood where the crab cake is at. When our family were driving from Philadelphia to DC, we decided to grab a crab cake lunch at Baltimore so we stopped at Lexington Market. Honestly, I was really shocked how dirty and sketchy the exterior looked and the interior was even... More

This is a real, 200 year old, city market; it is not prettified for tourists. Hundreds of food stalls cover 2 square city blocks. This is "ROADFOOD" central for Baltimore. Come here to find excellent crab cakes (appropriately priced), fresh fruit salad, freshly baked cookies, ice cream, superb fried chicken. Noisy, dirty, dimly lit, no water view; I'm in love.... More

Have seen some less favorable reviews of the Market, but we enjoyed our visit. We have lived in Asia, so wet markets are nothing new, and this is similar to those. Fresh fruits & vegetables are available, as well as bakery items and cooked food. Malay & Chinese foods looked great and the people were so friendly! Of course our... More

All the food was excellent and a great bargain. If your not comfortable being in an inner city environment where there are homeless people, some mental disease, alcoholism, drugs then definitely don't come. There is security here and my wife and I felt safe and had many friendly conversations with the locals and merchants. I would definitely go back for... More

Baltimore needs to advertise this place more,it is only a few blocks from Camden Yards and may house some of the best food at reasonable prices in the country.Scary--not at all,park in their parking lot or take the light rail which stops right in front of the place.Presidents of the United States have visited here as well as many other...

I grew up outside of Baltimore and as a family we went to Lexington market quite often - it definitely has changed quite a bit as anything in an inner city would. We were staying in the inner harbor area this past weekend and wanted to grab lunch at faidleys. When I asked the bellman for the best route he... More

The prospect of going to a long established food court while visiting Baltimore sounded like fun and a place to pick up some interesting foods. When I arrived there were at least 8 security persons patrolling the area with a lot of scary looking people milling about, some were yelling back and forth and I did not feel safe at... More

It isn't located in the best part of baltimore. It has many options for lunch. It has one of the better spots for crab cakes. I probably won't come back again.
