Lexington Market will give vegan customers more options for plant-based cuisine in their updated facility.
Garden Produce and BMore Vegan Joint will be part of the slate of vendors at the historic public market, which is scheduled to open this fall after undergoing a restoration and reconstruction.
Father-and-son-owned Garden Produce, which operates inside the existing market building, has sold fresh produce and fruit/veggie smoothies since 2014 with a “mission to meet the nutrition needs” of Baltimore City.
“We’re proud to continue our operation as Lexington Market’s produce vendor because offering nutritious staple foods to the community is so important,” said Green Produce co-owner Steve Hyon in a statement. “We’ve made so many memories with people over the past eight years, and we look forward to making more with everyone at the new building.”
The public market will also be the new home of a Vegan Juiceology subsidiary BMore Vegan Joint. The vegan eatery’s plant-based menu will pay homage to Baltimore culture with menu names and themes reminiscent of the city’s traditions, music and lifestyle.
Names of food items will be inspired by popular Baltimore club music, such as “Hey You Knuckle Head” and “The Percolator.”
The menu will feature all plant-based options, such as vegan alternatives to burgers, fish, meatball subs, Philly cheesesteaks, milkshakes made from oat milk, and chicken wing boxes covered in Old Bay seasoning.
“We are excited to expand the Vegan Juiceology brand with our first subsidiary, BMore Vegan Joint, at Lexington Market,” said Dominique Allen, owner and executive chef of BMore Vegan Joint, in a statement. “Over the past year, our plant-based burgers and hand-cut fries have become a popular request from the community. We are thrilled to fulfill this request, provide more access to healthy food options, and expand our menu to more than just burgers and fries. We know the people want burgers, and we will deliver them, and so much more, daily. We hope you’re ready, Baltimore!”
With the addition of Garden Produce and BMore Vegan Joint, Lexington Market has so far announced 36 vendors in their new building, with more to come.
The new facility is still under construction, but the East Market building is open to the public Monday through Saturday.
