From one-of-a-kind local boutiques to national retailers, shopping in Baltimore is as fun and diverse as its hip and historic neighborhoods. Larger retail centers include Harborplace and The Gallery, located on the Inner Harbor. Harbor East is fast becoming the city’s upscale shopping destination (think Under Armour Brand Store, Anthroplogie and Lululemon). A mix of boutiques can be found in Federal Hill, Fell’s Point, Hampden and Cross Keys as well as along the Charles Street Scenic Byway. A walk down Antique Row presents an amazing collection of shops featuring items from the past. You can also find large malls – retail and outlet – in the area.
Public markets abound. The Lexington Market is one of the oldest in the nation, while the Cross Street Market in Federal Hill and the Broadway Market in Fell’s Point attract a mix of locals and visitors. Farmers markets appear in season and offer a wide variety of foods, goods and crafts and are just plain fun to explore.
