Great food and drinks in a friendly community environment. We sat at the community table and met some nice people. Draft beer, nice cocktails and interesting dishes. Fried pickles were great. Many dishes we watched leave the kitchen looked great.

This was my third visit to this wonderful restaurant. Each time seemed to be better than the last. It seems that Hampden and especially 36th Street has become a Baltimore restaurant row with The Food Market as a stand out. The room is handsome, the wait staff is friendly and professional and the menu is extensive but always features fresh... More

We've been to The Food Market in Hampden 5 or 6 times and have always enjoyed it. They have wonderful cocktails and wines by the glass for imbibers. The food selection runs the gamut from warm, salted nuts to the best cut of steak. You choose from small plates, medium and large plates. I love their bronzini, my husband loves... More

I am never able too get the same thing twice at food market with their wide variety of flavors brought to each dish. That said, it's difficult to choose a favorite among them. The service is very good, even when sitting at the bar for your meal. Among the constant motion, the vibe through the dining room is always upbeat... More

I wouldn't say we're regulars at this restaurant, but pretty close. Of all 1,000 restaurants in the Baltimore area this is my #2 spot, and a lot easier to get into than my #1 spot (which as of this writing is also #1 in the city). The menu is frequently changing to accommodate for whatever is fresh and in season,... More

In Baltimore recently for daughter's graduation and tried out a couple of recommended restaurants. The Food Market was in a trendy little area, Hampden, with lots of cute artsy shops. Four of us had lunch on a Sunday and were impressed from start to finish. Food is trendy like the neighborhood, but really tasty. Among us we shared tiny tacos... More

My husband and I were not terribly impressed with our first visit to the Food Market. We felt it didn't quite meet the expectations we had for it based on all the hype. We came back for a second try and left very satisfied. We ordered the asparagus salad and the cauliflower & carrot starter. Both were exceptional. On our... More

What a creative and unique set of offerings at this very fun restaurant! We had wonderful cocktails, great appetizers, delicious meals and yum yum to the desserts!! The service was great, and we loved the free valet parking. Make reservations way ahead of time I hear... (we were guests of our kids). Come hungry and ready for a wonderful dining... More

Oh Hampden, you have so so many great places to eat. Food Market is usually quite solid. I like to go there with a few folks and get a bunch of plates to share, but that’s actually how I prefer all my dining. What I like about their menu is the things are divided by size. I was there for... More
