As a teenager, Robin Holmes and her best friend would catch the bus from Mervo High School to Lexington Market to grab an after-school snack. On Tuesday, her stall in the new Lexington Market building sold snacks to Lt. Gov. Aruna Miller. Miller and Gov. Wes Moore joined state and city officials Tuesday for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the grand opening of the new market, which has been serving customers since a soft opening in October. More than 20 vendors — about half of the market’s capacity — are now open inside the 60,000-square-foot market building, including Deddle’s Donuts, the first brick-and-mortar location for Holmes, a Baltimore native who spent five years tooling around the D.C./Maryland/Virginia area in a pink food truck before joining Lexington’s vendor lineup.
