BALTIMORE — As part of its ongoing redevelopment, Lexington Market is opening its second and final round of vendor applications.
The first round closed last October and drew more than 160 applications.
In this latest round, the market is looking for between 20 and 30 more vendors.
Slated to open in early 2022, the transformed Lexington Market will be home to approximately 50 vendors.
The new Market is also offering space for 10 kiosks on short-and medium-term rental agreements.
Some foods and businesses the market's in search of include vegetarian or vegan, produce, creole, soul food, snacks, candies, bakers, butchers, Jewish and Italian delis, Asian cuisine, BBQ pit beef, and Latin American food.
Now the vendor selection process is a two-step one involving a first look from more than 30 Community Reviewers, and a final interview and decision stage from a selection committee made up of community members, industry leaders, and small business professionals.
The process aims to boost representation of black, women, and city resident-owned businesses.
New applications are due by March 19 and should be submitted here.
Vendors selected from the first round are expected to be announce over the next few months.
