Lexington Market launches make-over survey

Lexington Market wants residents and customers to share their impressions of the historic venue via a survey posted on its website and Facebook page.

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and will be collecting responses through March 16.

“Lexington Market and the city of Baltimore are exploring options for making substantial investments in the facility in order to better serve the people of Baltimore. Your answers will help ensure that the Market’s redevelopment plan meets the needs of area residents,” the survey reads.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake took to Twitter on Thursday to encourage people to participate in the survey.

“A team of architects, food retail experts & urban planners need your help to transform Lexington Market. #BetterBaltimore,” Rawlings-Blake tweeted.

The survey asks questions about where residents shop for food, the last time they visited the market and the reasons for not visiting the market.

Recently the city developed a capital improvement plan designed to help bring new life to the market, which has struggled to attract customers. Late last year Market Ventures Inc., of Portland, Maine, was chosen to perform a market study of Lexington Market and is expected to produce a report by this fall.
