I haven't been in quite a few years but when I drive by, it seems like they've taken good care of it. The market always had a plethora of food options & so many interesting things to look at .

If you want to know an old and well dept market this is the right place. Baltimore is a port nearby Washington which has its own history. This place is very interesting.

After reviewing other peoples' reviews, we were curious to explore this place while visiting Baltimore. We enjoyed seeing the motivation that is hidden behind some of the most creative business owners in Baltimore. TONS OF FOOD AND FLEE MARKET ITEMS. It can be pretty crowded on the weekend, however, you will enjoy the site seeing part. Out front resides various... More

if you are loooking for a fancy place, forget it! this is a popular market that it seemed to us, showed 'real baltimore'. If that is what you are looking in a city, then visit this place. Take precautions since it is not a touristic area at all. If you like seafoof DO NOT MISS IT! it is not expensive... More

I was skeptical about going to the Lexington market because of all the reviews!. This is my first trip to bmore so I asked my son about it before we decided to go. By him being a resident of bmore, he assured us that it was not as bad as the reviews were saying. So I must say, first of... More

After visiting Poe and Westminster church we continued on the Lexington market. I wish we hadn't, but one never knows until we see for ourselves. It was was just not a great feel. The people at Fadley's (?) (supposed best crab cakes) were less than friendly and the crab cakes less than best and cold at that. Id say it... More

My most recent visit was back in January. Lexington Market is one of the oldest public markets in the country, and Faidley' s Crab Cakes is it's cornerstone. The franchises are huge balls (not flat) of choice lump crab meat. They are a little pricey, but definitely worth it. Having said that, you need to keep in mind that Lexington... More

So, I stayed at the Ronald McDonald house down the street for a week or two, and I do love it there. That being said, it is known as a dangerous spot. The crab cakes at Faidley's in particular are out of this world, and they have an amazing pastrami shop towards the back. Plus, the shops on the block... More

My daughter and I walked here from our hotel near Camden Yards as all the tourist literature said it was a must stop. This is an urban neighborhood, and caters to those in the neighborhood. There is nothing here even remotely appealing to an outsider. I've been fortunate enough to have visited some rough neighborhoods around the country in DC,... More
