Baltimore’s public markets, including the famed Lexington Market, have closed until further notice in compliance with a series of executive orders that Gov. Larry Hogan announced Thursday in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Hogan ordered all enclosed shopping centers and entertainment venues to close, effective 5 p.m. Thursday. He also prohibited gatherings of more than 10 people and urged Marylanders who are not “essential workers” to avoid using public transit during the current state of emergency.

Lexington Market, which is undergoing a $40 million reconstruction project, is searching for a developer to take on the East Market building once the new South Market has been built.

The nonprofit operator Lexington Market Inc., issued a request for proposals (RFP) Tuesday asking for plans that fit with the character of the areas surrounding the market, such as the Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District, Market Center National Historic District, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus.

The makeover of Lexington Market began on Tuesday as state and city officials broke ground on the project to reconstruct downtown Baltimore’s 238-year-old public market.

Updating the market will be part of building Baltimore “better and stronger for the future,” said Baltimore Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young, who envisioned a day when tourists from across the country will flock to the city to visit the new Lexington Market.

“Lexington Market’s next chapter represents an incredible opportunity for our city, and it is essential that we support the equitable redevelopment and revitalization of this economic hub for delicious food and homegrown entrepreneurship as we continue to grow Baltimore,” he said.

Featuring a central hip and pent hip roof spanning the length of the pavilion, the new Lexington Market would look a lot like the old sheds that served as the market’s home until a fire destroyed the structure in 1949. Only, it would be newer and sleeker, with slatted metal siding and factory-style windows.

Seawall Development, the firm tasked with designing the next iteration of the 237-year-old market, presented these plans, drawn up by BCT Architects, to the city’s Urban Design and Architecture Advisory Panel today.
