Best Public Market

Cross Street Market

1065 S. Charles St.,

Baltimore’s five public markets—Avenue, Broadway, Cross Street, Hollins, and Northeast—each have their own merits and demerits, but Cross Street is the heaviest on the former and the lightest on the latter. It couples the basic market fare—the green grocer, the fishmonger, the meat-and-poultry stall—with plenty of prepared-food offerings, other amenities (such as flowers, sweets, and cell phones), and a busy, jovial, welcoming atmosphere. Plus, it’s a genuine neighborhood gathering spot. For the life of us, we don’t understand why all of the public markets can’t be like this.
