Took an afternoon trip here before they closed at 6. Had a famous Berger cookie, very delicious and not expensive. Then I went to Pandora's Box for some beef liver with onion. Weird combo, but it was pretty good. A friend also got from bacon cheese fries to split - yum!

Local tradition at its best. Flavors of Baltimore throughout. Great place for a weekend lunch. Fresh produce, seafood and meats available to take home with you as well.

This place was awesome to walk through. If you're in the area, you've got to go to eat at Faidley's! But the options are seemingly endless, with options for even the pickiest of eaters!

This market is alive. Come on Saturday afternoon to experience the live music and hustle and bustle of a true urban market. Plenty of food options including the famous berger bakery and faidleys seafood.

I came to Baltimore for work and was super excited to check out Lexington Market. I have been to the Reading Terminal Market in Philly and Pike Market Place in Seattle and was hoping this place would be similar. It's old, run down, and dirty! I walked around with my husband and could hardly find anything we wanted. The food... More

This is an old fashioned food booth market. NOTHING ELSE! I lived ion the Wash. DC area for many years and was not surprised by the RAW nature of Lexington Market. Right downtown, parking in nearby lot a must, not cheap. The street are rough, and little police visible. In spite of the raw and rough nature, well worth the... More

Fantastic fresh oysters on the half shell. Best crab cakes ever, with shipping available. Everything is fresh and delicious.

the oysters were good. the place was strange. kinda small but clean. lots of deep fried stuff. the health grade of the food matches the geographical location and the state of the social decay outside of the market building. an interesting trip to be done before dark.
