I was told the best place to get crab cakes was Faidleys in Lexington market so we went. We didn't stay because we felt very out of place and unsafe. Definitely do not recommend it for white tourists.

There was a time, you could pick up everything you needed to make a great dinner party here, in a one stop shop ...from flowers to candles to salad to filet ....not anymore. Actually, your fruit and vegetable choices were severely lacking. It does not feel like it is in the safest of neighborhoods, but I had no problems and... More

We went on the one single weekend ever that Faidley's was closed so walked around the food area looking for alternatives. We finally decided on going somewhere else. There must have been 30 food places and everyone of them looked the similar to others of the same food type (Greek, seafood, burgers, etc). Beyond that, there was NO CHAIRS ANYWHERE.... More

Yes, this place has Faidley's, but Lexington Market has got much more than that. There's a good selection of foods, meats, groceries, desserts, and even non-edible goods. Yes, it's not located in the best area in the city, but it's always lively.

My husband and I travel often both in the U.S. and abroad. We love a new experience and are not easily deterred by questionable people or geography. Markets are some of our favorite places to visit in any city or culture. Lexington Market was concerning from the moment we entered the street from the parking garage! There were transient people...

This was the first time I have been here and won't be the last. The smells of fresh seafood and other scrumptious food become the navigation, as you travel through this beautiful market. A great place for 3 meals, snacking and a nice sizable doggie bag for home. Go and let you nose navigate you for a day of great... More

It was my first time visiting Baltimore last month and I had to come back because of the story that was told to me about this place--it's where they auctioned off the African Americans back in 1782. To know that a place still stood like this, I just wanted to be in the building. When you enter the one story... More

My friend and I (African-American professionals) visited the market on yesterday. After reading the reviews about the market from what appear to be non-African-Americans, I decided to write this review. I'd like to note that your experience in Lexington Market is what those of us in the minority feel every time we visit majority white venues. That being said, I... More
