Tourism Tuesday: Lexington Market

October 19th, 2010 by WLOY Staff

Looking to get away from the touristy side of Baltimore and into the heart and soul of it? Then Lexington Market is the place to go. With over 140 merchant stands and small eateries, you’re sure to find a variety of food to satisfy any Baltimore appetite.

With the Market nearing its 225th anniversary, you can taste the tradition in the Market, as merchants have passed down their stalls from generation to generation. From meat to fruit, seafood to baked goods, and even candy, you can find many famed foods like crab cakes from Faidley’s Seafood, Polock Johnny’s Hot Dogs, and those shortbread cookies covered in fudge we’ve come to know as Berger Cookies.

Food galore, annual events like the Chocolate Festival and Literacy week, and music every Friday and Saturday at noon… why wouldn’t you want to taste this part of Baltimore?

Lexington Market is located at:
400 W Lexington Street
Baltimore, MD 21201

Lexington Market’s Hours are:
Monday through Saturday, 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM
Closed Sunday
