I was visiting Baltimore for a swim meet and decided to visit Lexington Market with my 11-year-old daughter. The bright spot is the crabcakes at Faidley's were absolutely the best I've ever had. The bad thing is it is a pit. We ate at a table on the second floor so we could people watch. The place was filled with shifty, scary people. While we were sitting there, security guards roamed the area. I felt like I was in a prison. We watched two men conduct lengthy negotiations over a drug deal. The security guard took note and radioed someone - after the deal was finished. Nothing happened. If you've watched The Wire, you know exactly what Lexington Market is. It's a shame because it could be a really neat place and some of the vendors are awesome. I won't go back. I will have my crabcakes shipped.
