Several months ago I visited the market writting a review that wasn't very complementary.
In an attempt to be fair I thought another visit was in order to see if my experience was an arbitration or standard operations.
Sadly the place was worst then before....More
Went up to Lexington Market and was surprised that they had a band playing which was cool. I found Dancing Potato and got an overstuffed potato to take back to the hotel. When in Baltimore go visit esp on a Saturday.
Other then Faidley Seafood, many stands were closed. If you want fresh seafood, seems like the place. Parking was a bit confusing but the parking garage was next to the market. You need to go to a pay machine on a second floor unless you...More
Shopping, food and a great place to catch the bus or train, this area has some of the best crab cakes anywhere, and I've lived near. My sister came up from VA and agreed. Great stop to get away from touristy stuff.
Best crab cakes ever - I will remember them on my deathbed. Yes, the street looks like they're filming The Wire, but if you park at the Four Seasons and walk over and back, it's fine. Just don't talk to anyone.
Scary neighborhood and the inside was not much better. Was hoping to find a place to sit and eat but nothing at all. looks mostly for carry out and I wouldn't try that in that neighborhood. Felt like was an extra in the show The...More
I wouldn't call this a tourist attraction. It is a very old market and I appreciate it's history. There are a number of vendors with fresh fish/seafood, meats, sandwiches, baked goods, etc. I did see two security staff inside the building and felt reasonably safe...More
Lexington market is a nice place to grab local inexpensive food. The hours are 9-6, so make sure you get there if planning to grab dinner. There is no where to sit down but you can stand at tables provided. Look forward to visiting again.

There are some lame vendors...as far as "sketch part of town"...depends on who you are. Myself, I felt comfortable. Yes, use common sense, you are in a city known for it's crime, but don't short change yourself from the... More
There are some lame vendors...as far as "sketch part of town"...depends on who you are. Myself, I felt comfortable. Yes, use common sense, you are in a city known for it's crime, but don't short change yourself from the delicious food vendors and incredible fresh seafood. If your up for an authentic Baltimore experience and have no problems being in neighborhoods that aren't predominantly white then go for it. I'm a white female from a small town and it didn't intimidate me.In fact, it was awesome!

In my opinion it is totally not worth seeing at all.... so many other places to go eat in downtown Baltimore. The internet really hypes this place up as a great place to eat, and there may very well be some good food there.... but we didn't stick around long enough to even give it a shot. The market itself is dirty and looks like it badly needs a renovation or some kind of cosmetic upgrade to it. Many of the stalls that we saw were empty or closed up. Additionally, the part of town was literally referred to as "the ghetto" by our hotel desk clerk and it sure wasn't a very inviting atmosphere. The myriad of people roaming the streets just didn't have the "welcome to our neighborhood" vibe, and boy was the language tough to hear as you walked down the street or happened to stop at a corner to wait to cross the street. As I indicated in my review - the choice F-word was used about every 3rd word; and it was loud and crude. I can't really even think of a good reason to even go over there at all. Read several of the reviews that have been written about it and you'll see that many others agree with this assessment.
