Hi, Well, we went to the Lexington Market because we saw it on the Travel channel. Disappointing. It is really only one floor. We went to Fraiely's Seafood, which was more hype and picture taking than good food. However, we did come across great deli...More

I've heard people talk about it having been nicer in the past. I've been told that there is some petty crime. It probably exists, though if you look at the stats in Baltimore you will find that the pickpockets actually hit the tourist areas. And...More

Like many said, it's downright dangerous to be honest. I've been going for 50 years. Don't walk there... drive or take a cab. Don't wear any jewelry or flash any cash there. Why Baltimore allows that place to be heroin heaven I'll never know. The...More

The market isn't unsafe; I work nearby and go regularly to grab fruit or some lunch. There is also security. Of course you should be smart; like in any American city, be aware of your surroundings. There are paid lots and a... More
