  • We were really looking forward to going here but when we went we were surprised by the run down neighborhood, the constant bother of people outside the market trying to sell you something, and the ove...  more »

  • Lexington Market is a excellent place to find a wide variety of food. Its also an excellent place to take your family and enjoy not just the food but, the entertainment that's usually their for all to enjoy while you're eating or just strolling around the huge market and taking in the site. Their are also another part to the market across the street from the much larger one. With everything from burgers to alligator meat to frog legs and everything in between. If you're visiting Baltimore treat your family or just yourself to a few minutes strolling and taking in the sites and all the The World's Famous Lexington Market has to offer.
  • Neighborhood foodie find. Definitely not in the best neighborhood, smells & views can be bothersome but it's still a popular "must visit" here in Baltimore. There's a lot of history at Lexington Market as well as good foodie finds. Pros - A lot of food options/ cuisines, most businesses take credit ($5 & up), a lot of competitive businesses, constant upcoming and new businesses showcased, live bands frequently perform, grocery store... natural skin supply store... fresh meats... fresh bakeries... seafood section all on site. Cons - Unsafe area, limited fee for parking, loitering breathing grounds, could use more security. It takes a shove to get me in there but I'm always happy I went after leaving.
  • Absolutely love this place. It’s not for everybody as some uptight people might not see the true beauty of such an iconic urban experience. Want to come back for Faidley’s crab cakes one day soon. Plenty to soak in and see. Place is ALWAYS packed with the locals and there is often a band playing in the center of the market. Mostly Chinese food and fried chicken spots but the sightseeing and people watching alone is so enjoyable for me.
  • Foods galore! Candies, cakes, cookies, fresh fish, vegetables and fruits, meats, ordinary and exotic. Cooked food, whole meals. A raw bar at Fadley's seafood. Live music, and adult beverages available too. You're hit with a hundred great smells as soon as you enter. Great customer service, reasonable prices for everything. You're bound to buy more than you can handle and it all tastes so good. World Famous Lexington Market in Baltimore.
  • Loved the atmosphere inside the market. A plethora of food choices. It's almost sensory overload. Whatever you are hungry for..this place has it. I would have given it a higher rating but the area of town it sits in may be safe, but doesn't feel safe.
