This is one of the oldest city markets in the country. Open 6 days until 6 pm it is a favorite of the people who work close by. Ordering a sandwich to go or eat there only takes minutes. You can also find entertainment on the center stage. If you look hard enough you'll find food you probably wont find... More

RIPPED OFF!! Charged for a full day, we were only there for 1/2 hour!!! AVOID. There is plenty of street parking in the area, on the side streets or park a block away and walk. The crab cakes were fabulous at Frieley's in the market though!!

I live in NYC and have traveled all over the world. My husband wanted to go here for Berger Cookies, supposedly the best in the city. We started walking as it is only about a 10-15 mn walk from Inner Harbor, the scenery changed drastically. My husband kept commenting how clean Baltimore was, well not over there, it was filthy-...

Fiadleys has some of the best crab cakes I've ever had (I've had a lot including fresh caught homemade). I'm really not into fried chicken parts (every part) or cheese steak so I don't eat all the other stuff at the market. I do enjoy watching the folks and looking at Asians selling fried chicken to Black folks. It's easy... More

We visit this place every time on vacation. The best take out food available when you have a hotel room in the area. Great fried chicken and pastries. The place to eat when on a budget.

I am an average middle class white guy and we have travelled several places in the US that have ethnic or African American populations such as New Orleans, New York City and the Bronx, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Atlanta and several other cities in Georgia. But I have never felt more out of place and uncomfortable than the 30 minutes... More

This is set up like a mall of small counter restaurants Chinese, soul, fruit stand, deli, fish etc. We had the soul food and it was ok. The portions were large and the price was cheap ($7.99) entree and two sides. The best part was the desserts. Wonderful cakes, cookies and pies all freshly made. Huge portions and cheap, A... More

Almost any type of food you want they have it. Most of the stalls I saw was you order and stand at bistro type table to eat. You can also buy fresh poultry, fish, seafood and veggies. Lexington Marker is considered a Baltimore landmark. Although it is not in the best area of town...you can feel safe with it's onsite... More

The market itself is rather interesting with all the different vendors and variety of foods. I would think one could find whatever they needed there. Faidley's is well known for their crab cakes and they truly are delish.
