I like visiting markets. Markets are usually something I see out in every city I visit whether it be a permanent market, a daily one or a pop-up outdoor one. Usually I'm excited to find some amazing food, which I'm sure is in here somewhere, and just people watch and take in a local, non-touristy type of environment. This place however disappointed. It didn't feel like a very safe area of town, it didn't feel like the people loitering around were very interested in shopping, and it didn't feel the sales taking place were all sales of legal nature. The building from the outside is nice and it's easy to get here on the Charm City Circulator, but inside it was a bit dirty/grimy/gritty/dingy - you get the idea. The police and market operators would be needed to help safeguard this historical market and make it a place that leaves a good taste in visitor's mind. I'm sure no local who shops here would mind some improvements either. I don't expect every bit of a city to be like the tourist area the inner harbour is, but there definitely is something in between the inner harbour and Lexington Market in terms of safety and cleanliness.
