Do you want to enjoy a journey back in time?

If so, head to the Lexington Market

It dates back to 1792, and with over 100 vendors, the market is known as Baltimore’s best place for food.

Highlights include:

Country Kitchen

Country Kitchen is known for its classic Southern American soul food. It’s one of the only places that serves chitterlings and hog maw. These dishes used to be considered hard-time foods, and today they are delicacies best enjoyed with vinegar and hot sauce. On the side, try the creamy mac & cheese. 


Established in 1886, Faidley’s is a Baltimore institution with a long, storied history. It is one of the Chesapeake region’s oldest and best-known purveyors of fresh and prepared seafood. The chefs are famous for their crab cakes which many customers call “one of the best things on Earth.” Faidley’s still calls its original location at the market home and features eccentric decor and standing room only seating with communal tables. In addition to the crab cakes, other offerings include flounder, lake trout, and fried clam strips. 

Mary Mervis Delicatessen 

Mary Mervis is one of the finest delis in the United States. In its 103 year history, the deli has only had three owners, and it is where customers enjoy sandwiches made from century-old recipes. The lines are always long, and the staff makes 2,500 pounds of corned beef every week. It sells out daily along with the delicious seafood salad. 

The market is open Monday through Saturday from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
