  • Voted Best Place to be Offered Drugs by City Paper for Best of Baltimore 2011
  • For absolutely no money, you can enter the Market, walk around, watch butchers and fishmongers at work, and smell wonderful food cooking. You'll get a feel for how we used to go food shopping.
  • Leland I think you mean crackhead watching
  • Come in with an open mind and cautious eye. The food is good but there is some seedy stuff going down
  • Faidley's crabcakes are REEEE-Dic!
  • Don't leave home without your bullet proof vest if you visit this place.
  • Good food... Historical landmark, but has some disturbed individuals hanging around
  • Get a nice fresh batch of Utz Potato Chips with purchase of illegal firearm!
  • Bring cash. The only card they except is Independence....
  • These tips are ridiculous. It's perfectly safe when open and the food is amazing.
  • Lexington Market is the world's largest continuously running market started in 1782 on land donated by General John Eager Howard, a hero of the American Revolution.
  • Parks fried chicken, best in baltimore
  • Find the longest line and order what the person front of you gets.
  • Cash only ugh
  • Operational since 1782, the world's largest, continuously running market is home to produce, deli, fish, poultry and candy stalls.
  • Gteat place to people watch, lol
  • What E. Faye Butler loves about Baltimore: "Some of the best food in Baltimore, from produce to fish, fresh meats and oysters. You can also pick up a purse, some socks, vitamins... one-stop shopping."
  • My advice would be to avoid the bathroom, but don't miss Faidley's, for their great seafood/oyster bar.
  • Be aware: the area is really bad. Even my taxi driver warned me not to use the bathroom. Glad I kept his number - NO cab in the area. You will be waiting for a taxi next to crack whores looong time.
