This market is a must see in downtown Baltimore. Our uber driver told us to not go . that it was a dangerous place. BS! We didn't listen and it was one of the most amazing places we have ever been. If you want to...More

Loved this place, had wonderful crab cakes, go if you want real life, not that boring harbour area. Get the metro there, easy peasy

Agree with below reviews. Visited last Saturday during one of Baltimore's signature events, the marathon. Large cup full of urine sitting on curb at entrance. Inside were people smoking crack. Accosted twice outside to buy drugs. Complete disgrace and embarrassment for Baltimore

Several months ago I visited the market writting a review that wasn't very complementary. In an attempt to be fair I thought another visit was in order to see if my experience was an arbitration or standard operations. Sadly the place was worst then before....More

Went up to Lexington Market and was surprised that they had a band playing which was cool. I found Dancing Potato and got an overstuffed potato to take back to the hotel. When in Baltimore go visit esp on a Saturday.

Other then Faidley Seafood, many stands were closed. If you want fresh seafood, seems like the place. Parking was a bit confusing but the parking garage was next to the market. You need to go to a pay machine on a second floor unless you...More

Forget the fried chicken which was greasy bland and under done. The best thing there by far is Knauss' fresh turkey sandwich plus some fresh fruit for dessert. Reasonably priced an near the B&O museum

There's one called Faidley's at the back of the Lexington Market. It's the best crabcake ever, but I don't know about crab legs. Why not' search them on goggle or e-mail them and ask. Hope this helps.
