  • Someplace where stuck up people do not have priority and yes ALL people can conduct proper business. I love that Asian gift shop there. Love them in General. The place has great food cooked or fresh and ready to cook and the sturdy building has many retail stores that fit each crowd.
  • Good market for fresh meat and produce. There was a good mix of everything here for both eating and shopping. However it did not live up to reputation in my opinion. It just seemed like there was not a lot of unique vendora in here
  • It was cool. Would love to see it full. Some of the stalls were empty, but even so it had a vibrant community feel to it. I felt fine walking around by myself, neighborhood looks a little gritty but I felt safe and hotel staff told me it's fine to walk around alone.
  • Food great service excellent and they are really cleaning it up outside most dealers across street now. Love the history and to share it with my kids and we all have a favorite item at the market. Burger cookies,smoothies we call dinosaur juice ( taken from peppa pig) constants coffee fried vegetables and cakes.
  • I found a strand of hair in my food, after informing a security guard, we went back and after words back and forth I got my money. My stomach is sick as a result!

Where to stay in Baltimore

For quick and easy access to practically all of Baltimore's major attractionswhile on holiday, follow the example of most tourists and stay near the Inner Harbor neighborhood. Few cities boast such a well-defined tourist district, it shouldn't come as a surprise that all the major chain hotels in the city are located right in this busy neighborhood. If you prefer to stay in a quieter area offering a bit more local character, consider one of the city's outlying districts, offering affordable accommodations and plenty of dining and shopping options.
