Where to Eat in Baltimore:
Baltimore Farmer’s Market & Bazaar
What’s better than fresh fruits and veggies? We can’t think of anything either. When it comes to organic we all know it’s best to go straight to the source—your local farmers and vendors. Known for being a producers only market (vendors only sell what they make) the Baltimore Farmer’s Market and Bazaar has the best of all things organic with everything from baked goods to soups to herbs. This robust and flavorful market is the perfect way to spend your Sunday morning after a great night’s sleep.
The ultimate farm to table restaurant Woodberry Kitchen touts close relationships with local farmers to ensure that they promote sustainable, organic food. With only the best local ingredients on hand, it is no surprise that their menu is packed full of a number of organic dishes that taste as good as they look. Utilizing the freshest seasonal ingredients it’s hard to imagine not having an amazing meal here. Did we mention they have an Instagram-worthy brunch menu?
With seasonal menus that play to the season’s freshest ingredients, Cava Mezze brings a modern twist to traditional Mediterranean food. With creative, fun dishes and plenty of gluten free and vegan options it’s easy to see why the restaurant is always abuzz with diners eager to get the full experience. Order a number of small plates and their renowned dips or indulge in a delicious steak—you really can’t go wrong at this neighborhood staple.
