I went here wondering how bad it could really be. After all, I've been to other markets in other cities like Reading Terminal in Philly, Granville Island in Vancouver, and of course Pike Place in Seattle. How scary could it be? I went at lunchtime...More

"Welcome to the Lexington Market, the best way to taste what Baltimore have to offer." This is what we read in the visitor's guide at our hotel. No disrespect to the vendors, but the venue seems overcrowded and uninviting, and the area a bit unfriendly....More

Lexington Market is apparently world famous but I’ve never actually heard of it and I’m from England. For something that is world famous, I expected it to be a lot better than it actually was. It’s far too hot inside for one but it’s very...More

Like others, I heard this was a must see for Baltimore. It’s dirty, rundown, and in a very sketchy area, complete with aggressive panhandlers. Imagine a food market in a dystopian future. Go in Faidley’s entrance in the back, get your crab cakes (which are...More

What a neat place. All different kinds of food. Isle after isle of different vendors and live music. We enjoyed the sea food, bakery and local culture. Great place to spend a few hours.
