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

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
