Baltimore's fragrant, gleaming Lexington Market, the world's largest,
continuously running market for more than six generations, marks its 220th
anniversary this year.
Old as the nation itself, Lexington Market has been a wonderful Baltimore
tradition since 1782 at the original site it occupies today, on Lexington Street,
between Eutaw and Greene Streets.
General John Eager Howard, a hero of the American Revolution, donated the
land for the market, named for the Battle of Lexington, on his return from the war. It had been a pasture on his family's vast estate, a tract spreading north and west to where Washington's monument and General Howard's statue now stand.
Without waiting for streets, sheds or stalls, outlying farmers converged on the site as soon as General Howard gave the word. They trundled up 'in great Conestoga wagons, their horses strung with bells, making their own roads . On the rolling green yard, they spread out hams, butter, eggs, turkeys and produce.
Merchants joined the farmers in setting up a purchase and barter exchange for grain, hay, farm staples and livestock. Farmers spent all night loading their wares and traveling the twenty miles from Towson and Reisterstown, with sales beginning at dawn.
Not until 1803 did a shed go up at Eutaw and Lexington Streets. From then on, The Market grew by leaps and bounds until the formal marketplace sprawled over another block to Greene Street. At first, the place was only opened Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 2:00 AM till noon, the starting and closing historic bell ringing for 145 years.
George Washington and Thomas Jefferson passed the vicinity as they rode horseback to and from their Virginia estates and Philadelphia, the nations capital.
Famed statesman Daniel Webster visited the scene in 1785, and later the arts were represented by such visitors as painter James McNeill and novelist William Thackeray. When Ralph Waldo Emerson visited The Market he proclaimed Baltimore the "gastronomic capital of the world."
Perhaps it was the timing, but with its name change from Western Precincts
Market to Lexington Market, Howards Hill became one of the wonders of the 19th century. In 1817, the city finally arrived at its boundaries and took over. Five years later The Market was extolled by the visiting United States Attorney General William Wirt, who wrote to his daughter in Washington that: "You may conceive the vast quantity of provisions that must be brought to this market when you are told that 60,000 people draw their daily supplies from ' which is more than twice as many people as there are 'in Washington, Georgetown,
Alexandria and Richmond, all in one."
Growth of Baltimore Town up and over Howard's Hill had made it the nation's
second largest city. Turnpikes linked it to Harrisburg and Richmond, with lines of wagon teams, rumbling north and south to this bustling junction of bay, canal and turnpike. Lexington Market was the hub. From Pennsylvania, Cumberland and
Virginia countrymen traveled three and four days to hawk their butter, winter
apples, handmade socks, yarn gloves and hams at The Market.
By mid 19th century, Lexington Market has acquired its full growth and was hailed everywhere as the largest and best market on earth. Although commission merchants moved into the picture, nearby farmers, who preferred to keep the huckster's profit, jammed the area with as many as 600 wagons on Saturdays.
After the Civil War, and through the turn of the 20th century, Lexington Market
was a recognized social center for the most democratic traditions. Social
leaders exchanged trade gossip about current news and produce prices.
Atmosphere abounded. Street singers, musicians, fortune tellers and
evangelists competed with soap box economists for shoppers attention.
Gourmet dining took place at oilcloth covered tables set in teeming aisles.
As new tides of immigration swept into the nation, Lexington Market acquired
new blood among it's stall keepers and exotic foods on its counters. In 1916, a Greek-Italian peanut war cut prices 3 cents a quart and prompted a stall sign blasting; " Remember, We Do Not Sell Common Peanuts Here."
By 1925, there were over 1,000 stalls under 3 block-long sheds. In addition,
there were as many stands and carts outside and traffic in the area had become a problem. "Lexington Market must go" declared an exasperated Mayor Preston in 1912. "Whether the tenants desire it or not."
But Lexington Market refused to go, despite many attacks. Though street stalls were banned by Mayor Jackson's Traffic Committee in 1935, they not only survived but seemed to multiply with the publicity. In 1937 the movement to replace the old buildings with something new and modem was well under way, but the plans stayed on the drawing board until 1949.
In that year, what civic leaders seemed unable to do in a decade, happened
overnight in a six-alarm fire that raged in the main buildings, destroyed
