Located in Baltimore, Maryland in the United States, the Lexington market is a historical market in the downtown. Two huge buildings situated on the northern corners where Paca and the Lexington streets intersect, house the main Lexington Market. The Lexington market is inclusive of the main market as well as all the small shops from the Greene Street till the Liberty Street which is all on the Lexington street itself.
This wonderful market is also the world's largest running market. It has been continuously growing from the year 1782, which is the year of its foundation. The market still continues to operate from the same site that it had been established in years ago. The land on which this market stands today, was actually donated by General John Eager Howard. However, the market did not have sheds or stalls originally.
The major attraction other than its primary function is the extremely delicious food which is one of its kind, that you find only here and nowhere else. There are a number of shops on the street that feature food items like pizza, Chinese food, fried chicken, deli sandwiches. It is actually the Gyros because of which, the Lexington Market is the most popular spot for lunch among the working people of Baltimore as well as the student who belong to the nearby campuses like the Maryland University, Baltimore and the University of Baltimore.
The Lexington street best eatery is perhaps the Faidley's. This is majorly known for its delicious crabcakes as well as the Polock Johny's hot dogs.
The food market remains closed on all Sundays.
