Center Maryland Co-founder Martin Knott, John Bullock of the Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance, and Angela Sweeney of The Peterson Companies, discuss the urban tradition of strong central markets. As you walk through Cross Street Market, you observe the foundation of a community that enjoys its local beer, digs into its hearty crab cakes, and cheers fervently for its home teams. People, whether vendor or customer, are addressed by their first name or 'Hon' -- here people are simply neighbors. As Baltimore grows, the redevelopment of markets must be a priority.
