    For absolutely no money, you can enter the Market, walk around, watch butchers and fishmongers at work, and smell wonderful food cooking. You'll get a feel for how we used to go food shopping.

    What E. Faye Butler loves about Baltimore: "Some of the best food in Baltimore, from produce to fish, fresh meats and oysters. You can also pick up a purse, some socks, vitamins... one-stop shopping." Read more

    Come in with an open mind and cautious eye. The food is good but there is some seedy stuff going down

    Several studies support the hypothesis that economic and racial disparities in obesity and diabetes may be, at least partially, explained by the food environment.

    My advice would be to avoid the bathroom, but don't miss Faidley's, for their great seafood/oyster bar.

    Be aware: the area is really bad. Even my taxi driver warned me not to use the bathroom. Glad I kept his number - NO cab in the area. You will be waiting for a taxi next to crack whores looong time.

    Its like the Ferry Building in SF but located in the Tenderloin District. Brave the rough crowd and get a crabcake from Faidley's.

    I laugh hard at these tips. The option to STAY AWAY is a viable one. Either love it, or leave it alone.

    Always rife with addicts and panhandlers. When benefits are out it is rife with mamas and strollers. But the food is great.
