March 19, 2020 Update – COVID-19 and Baltimore Public Markets
Lexington Market and Baltimore Public Markets will be closing at 5PM on Thursday, March 19th
In accordance with new actions announced by Governor Hogan which include the closure of shopping centers, limiting gatherings, and narrowing the use of transit travel due to COVID-19, Lexington Market and Baltimore Public Markets will close to the public effective at 5:00 PM today and remain closed until further notice.
The Markets Corporation realizes this may be an inconvenience to many, however, the design of our markets limits the feasibility of continued carry-out when our merchants do not have direct exterior access to offer walk-up or drive-through services. By stopping patrons from entering and congregating to make purchases and by keeping our employees from using public transportation to get to work, we are doing our part in slowing the progression of this disease.
We take seriously our roles in ensuring the health and safety of those in our community and will be closing Lexington, Avenue, Broadway, Hollins and Northeast markets.
