Faidley's Seafood & Fresh Fish Market
203 N Paca St
Baltimore, MD 21201
Faidley's handmade crab cakes typically draw a crowd that spills out into the halls of Lexington Market. The Market itself is one of the country's largest daily indoor food markets, while Faidley's real estate consists only of a singular kiosk. This does not, however, seem to deter customers. Found in 1886, the sea-food purveyor has become a serious Baltimore staple, serving tall orders of over-the-counter fresh fish, in addition to catering all across Baltimore. The seafood mainstay offers everything from shrimp and trout to oysters and calamari, and all fresh fish can be cleaned, cut, and cooked to-order. And while all the fish Faidley sells is of the highest quality, the crab cakes are so incomparably good, the local fish-mongers were hired to develop a crab cake for the crew of the United States Space Shuttle. You might even say they're out of this world (sorry).
