I went to visit the Baltimore Farmer's Market under the JFX on Sunday after Thanksgiving. It was very rainy and cold and hardly anyone was there, so luckily for us parking was a breeze. We also knew that a lot of the stands would have gone since it is pushing Winter-- but we were still tempted to see what was offered. OK, fine, we were actually tempted by the amazing mini donuts and the crepe stand. Let's first talk about the donut stand because those are THE BEST DONUTS EVER. I love them so incredibly much. A large bag is $4 and they may be one of the best uses of $4 in this city. The dough is fresh and hot, and you can pour your own sugar on it. Oh they just melt in your mouth. The crepes were really delicious too-- you can make your own egg, cheese, meat combination but they are pretty hefty at $6 for one singular crepe. If you get anything fancier, some may cost you $8-9. I don't know about you, but when I go to the Farmer's Market, I expect things to be cheap...but I guess the prepared food isn't. However, the produce IS! I got a quart of turnips for $1! We also got a bag of four huge Organic chocolate chip cookies that were great. Basically, we went there to eat and we were so happy! I would recommend going to the Farmer's markets any day. Everyone there is so helpful and friendly! And the food, both the prepared and produce kind are delicious.
