  • Lexington Market is a thriving central market of deli, fruits and veg, fish, meat and local take out food. Everything there has good prices and very fresh. Go. The neighborhood is a rough one, but I have both walked there from a hotel in the morning for breakfast as well as driven and parked in the pay lot next to the market. It is a great place to learn about Baltimore culture like the three clams on the half shell and a beer at one of the vendor stands. Everyone just stands around, has a few clams and beer, and then heads home on the bus with groceries. Who knew unless you go there. Baltimore is evidently really well known for their Jewish corned beef. It is much milder than it's NY cousin. The fresh corned beef sandwiches and shrimp salad at the Mary Marvin's is not to be missed. Note, however, that in Baltimore Rubin sandwiches are not grilled. FRESH MEAT: GO TO THE BOOTH CALLED AMOS MEATS. I go to their stand every time I am in Baltimore and love their quality, freshness and friendliness. There is often no way to tell apart stand from stand in markets like this. I have been going there several times a year for going on 5 years. buy your meat at AMOS MEATS and tell them you saw Karen's review. I told them I would post this when I was there last.
  • I love Lexington Market it's a one stop shop for everything but clothes plus it's a historic landmark. The only downside is it stay crowed and a lot of people walking around like zombies high bagging. Other then that it's a nice spot to grab something to eat or cook when u get home
  • Incredibly dangerous area- went with my family and there was no way we were getting out of the car. Danger and Drugs everywhere with crazy numbers of junkies and panhandlers! We wanted crab cakes and cookies that this place is famous for but not worth putting yourself and your family in harms way
  • Lots of good eats for carry out. Tables are available. Try Kraus roasted turkey dinners, sandwiches & soups. Andy's for real steak subs(overstuffed), and of course the famed meatball subs. Ronnie's has all day good breakfast, subs and sausages. Faidley's famed crab cakes, also fish, shrimp and oyster bar. Lots of fried chicken stands,, and ethnic eateries. Don't forget the fruit stands, butcher, bakery and seafood shops.
  • Dirty outside everyone selling drugs cops harassing the people who are doing nothing wrong but not doing anything to the ones out there selling and buying drugs! Use to love eating here. But now, between all the people selling drugs like it's legal, and now even the food places are starting to get dirty!! I will never go down there with my son ever again... And the Bakery where they sell the burger cookies got closed down for a day because roaches were found in the cakes!! I don't think I will ever be visiting here again! And I use to spend at least 500$ here monthly!!!

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.
