Gotta get a crab cake here!!! Pricey but amazing! You can get so many different types of food here. Locals hang out here on Saturdays so it must be good!

Reading previous reviews, my expectation for the crab cakes went up. To my disappointment, it was not well cooked and was below average. It may have been only that day. But I won't spend that much money to get it again. The area did not seem nicest or most safe. I did not feel the market was very clean.

Loved this market! The crab cakes here were the best and the lowest price in all of the Harbor area. It is a walk or bus ride depending on where you are coming from but I thought it was worth it! The variety of dishes and vendors is wide ranging!

If you have a chance to stop by at the market, do try the crab cakes. They are great. Also, be sure to get the oysters if you like them!

Huge varieties of all types of food in 2 separate buildings, not the nicest area of town, walkable from downtown, close by to University of Md Hospital and the VA. Offers parking as well for a fee.

The area surrounding the market did not appear safe enough to walk. We had to turn around and go back to the harbour. The ride there by train was ok, but as soon as we got off the train, we realized we were in a very safe area.

I've visited the Pike St Market in Seattle and the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia so I had high hopes for this historic market, but it was a major disappointment. The whole surrounding neighborhood is "sketchy" to be kind. I grew up in a big city and it takes a lot to make me feel unsafe in the middle of... More

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.
