Best Public Market

The sidewalk traffic right around Lexington Market tends to raise our blood pressure a little bit, not to mention the traffic-traffic on Eutaw if we’re not on foot, but once we’re inside, Lexington Market just plain makes us happy. So much going on, so much to look at, such great people-watching, and so much to eat. Lord yes, we’ll take some pastrami and maybe some oysters and maybe some cut-up fruit—you know, like a palate cleanser—and then maybe some wings and then, OK, some cookies to take back to the office (better get a few extra for the trip back). Happy and full. And, really, it makes us happy it’s here in Baltimore, and so are we. And we just figured out that Rosa’s, the place with the awesome tamales, didn’t close, it just moved. And now we’re really happy.
