Get Away: Baltimore’s Broadway Market
The Fells Point landmark recently reopened after a $3+ million renovation.
Baltimore’s Fells Point is known for cobblestone streets, hip taverns, eclectic boutiques and a few longtime restaurants. Opened in May after a more than $3 million renovation, Broadway Market has made the waterfront neighborhood better still for foodies. A public market since 1786, Broadway Market’s restaurants and food stalls are in two separate buildings, the North Market and South Market sheds.
Sophia’s Place European Deli, Vikki’s Fells Point Deli and Sal’s Seafood (known for its fish tacos)—all longtime merchants—are now in the renovated north shed, where the indoor and outdoor seating is a mix of large communal and smaller bistro tables. New to the lineup: Thai Street, The Verandah (authentic Indian street food), locally made Taharka Brothers Ice Cream, and Connie’s Chicken and Waffles, which Food Network named as home to the best waffles in Maryland. Fat Tiger serves as a central bar from morning to night, serving everything from specialty coffees and mimosas to craft beer, wine and cocktails, plus modern American cuisine. The south shed includes The Choptank, a crab house and seafood restaurant with harbor views slated for a July opening; fans of Loch Bar, Choptank’s sibling in Atlas Restaurant Group, will find an excellent Maine lobster roll here, too, plus raw bar items such as oysters and shrimp.
