Hampden: The Food Market

In April, I went to the Food Market for brunch and I loved it. The Food Market is located right off the avenue in Hampden and they serve upscale comfort food. A friend and I were recently celebrating some exciting news and went to The Food Market for dinner.

After looking over the menu, we decided to share the Amish Soft Pretzels which I loved when I visited for brunch. They came with beer cheese fondue for dipping. The pretzels were soft and fluffy like pretzels should be. But the beer cheese fondue was awesome, it was made with pepper jack cheese and had a wonderful spiciness to it.

We also decided to share the Pan Roasted Pop Corn. It was topped with basil, grated cheese and truffle oil. The popcorn was good, but I wish the topping was more evenly spread throughout the dish.

For our main course, my friend ordered the Steak Frites. She chose the roseda sirloin cut which came with 3 onion butter, truffle parmesan fries, all the local veggies, w 36 st steak sauce. The steak was delicious and PACKED with flavor!

The Truffle Parmesan Fries that came with the dish were also delicious. They were thin, crispy and had an amazing flavor to them.

For my main course, I ordered the Chargrilled Lamb Rack. It came with whipped potatoes, grilled asparagus, and avenue 1 sauce. The lamb was delicious but I wasn’t a huge fan of the sauce, it was too tomato-y. The portion was also huge and the mashed potatoes were nice and creamy.

The food at The Food Market is easily some of the best in Baltimore and a perfect place to celebrate any special occasion.

The Food Market is located at 1017 W 36th St. in Hampden.
