This is a typical inner city market. You can find ton of fresh produce, meats, and bakery items. There was even a free concert on the main floor. It was a great afternoon and we enjoyed our walk through. If you are looking for real life Baltimore, then take a visit, if you are looking for a Wegmans you might... More

The Lexington Market is a great place to spend a leisurely Saturday morning or afternoon to catch some great bakery items and fresh meats and produce. The market is an eclectic mix of vendors selling fresh seafood, meat, bakery items and produce. You can find a wide array of food stands offering a plethora of dining options from Chinese, seafood,... More

I have never felt so unsafe. A woman in the car park was high on drugs and people were filming her for YouTube no doubt. I would recommend avoiding this area.

Lexington is a good, old-fashioned market with some no-nonsense delicious food... if you don't mind standing up and eating your food on paper plates! Although the crab cakes at Faidley's are expensive for their size, they really are as amazing as people say and absolutely must be tried. Soft, tasty and flavorsome. There are plenty of other stalls and eats... More

Like the opportunity to taste many different cultures in one spot. Lots of really good eating spots. Location of the market is handy, a 5 minute walk up from the Inner Harbour

I've been going to Lexington Market since I was in elementary school. It is still a classic market of the old school variety, full of different merchant food stalls. While a lot has changed, many favorites are still to be had there including Faidley's crab cakes and Berger's Cookies and baked goods. It's different than most places you buy food,... More

I had visited Lexington Market many years ago, on my last visit to Baltimore, and had good memories of it. Recently my wife and I visited Baltimore and stayed in the Inner Harbor area. We asked a local in The Gallery for directions to the market, and were dissuaded with the suggestion that we might enjoy the Cross Street Market... More

I went to Baltimore to spend Thanksgiving with my youngest daughter, son-in-law, and Grand daughter. We ended up driving downtown by M & T stadium, and Camden Yard. They had spoken about downtown because I wanted to have Maryland crab cakes. The area of downtown Baltimore was much nicer than expected. As you know the downtown areas of most major... More
