BALTIMORE’S NORTHEAST MARKET REOPENS TO CUSTOMERS MONDAY, JUNE 29
Fresh seafood, meats, produce as well as popular specialty dishes now available indoors
BALTIMORE, MD (June 26, 2020) – Northeast Market, the City’s Public Market serving Eastside residents and workers from The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions and nearby businesses at 2101 E. Monument Street, will reopen Monday, June 29. Hours will be 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. daily, with the exception of Saturday and Sunday, July 4 and 5, when the Market will be closed for its annual July 4th holiday break.
According to Baltimore Public Markets Corporation Executive Director Robert Thomas, the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic resulted in the longest total shutdown in the recent history of the markets.
“The legacy businesses inside of the markets have supported customers and the community for decades,” he notes. “Now, market merchants are energized and ready for the reopening of their businesses so that they can resume selling the signature dishes, fresh meats and seafood, staples and specialties customers have come to rely on. They welcome the return of customers, regular and new.”
For the health and safety of its customers, Northeast Market will operate at 50% capacity under the City’s Phase 2 requirements. Face coverings are strongly encouraged in compliance with recommendations of the Baltimore Health Commissioner.
Additional safety precautions in place at Northeast include new signage, customer counters at the doors, and decals and arrows on the floors showing travel direction and proper distancing. Hand sanitizer stations are now mounted by entryways. The Market will be cleaned and surfaces disinfected regularly throughout the business day as part of an ongoing safety and hygiene program.
Northeast Market is the first Baltimore Public Market to reopen since the start of the pandemic, with the other Public Markets scheduled to resume operations in the coming weeks. Broadway Market is offering curbside carryout and delivery while preparing to reopen at 50% capacity in early July.
Avenue Market is undergoing physical changes to comply with the new operating parameters resulting from the pandemic. Hollins Market will complete its remodel this summer and is slated to reopen with a fresh look. Lexington Market is coordinating with construction activity on the new South Market and is planning the reopening of existing merchant businesses accordingly.
