This cavernous addition to the environs of the Patapsco Arena and Patapsco Flea market features (at last count) 15 vendors with a bewildering amount of Pennsylvania Dutch-style offerings, along with a sit-down restaurant, fully operational seafood stand (as in, not just lake trout), and a Caribbean food stand. As far as vendors, we’re talking fresh baked goods (we’ve never seen a “Long John” eclair before, yikes), candy, bulk food, dried fruit, nuts, baking staples, a salad bar, all kinds of prepared foods like barbecued chicken, beef, and pork, and an outstanding assortment of cold cuts and fresh meats. How fresh? The Esh’s meat counter offers a 20 percent discount on anything they had to freeze. Also: cheese curds.
