Here are some of the best markets to visit when you’re in Baltimore.

1. Wegmans


Wegmans is a supermarket that can make you lose yourself inside it for hours. Not only does it contain everyday foods and products that people can purchase, but it has a Burger Bar, hot foods section, and freshly made sushi that’s prepared daily.
