Redevelopment & Renovation Project

UPDATE: March 2018

While construction has begun throughout the market, the following vendors are open and operating during the market's operating hours:

  • Nick’s Inner Harbor Seafood
  • The Sweet Shoppe
  • Cheese Galore & More
  • Pretzel Twist
  • Smoke BBQ
  • Nunnally Bros. Choice Meats.

As of March 21, 2018, several tenants will be temporarily closed due to the construction of their new spaces. These vendors include:

  • Fenwick Meats
  • Steve’s Lunch
  • Prescription Chicken
  • Sundays


The design aesthetic will harken back to the early 1950s when the Market was first reborn in its current configuration after a fire burned down the original facility. We look forward to bringing this vision to reality over the course of the following year and a half, and we hope that you will visit the Market throughout the phased construction process to support our merchants and to see the progress as it unfolds.

Cross Street Market Rendering

about cross street market

Cross Street Market is located at the heart of historic South Baltimore and serves a wide range of proud and long-established neighborhoods. The Market building itself is nestled between the north and south sides of East Cross Street and runs the entire length of the block between Charles and Light Streets.

about the developer

The project is being led by Caves Valley Partners, a Baltimore-based development company ‎that has been active in South Baltimore since its inception.

The company's largest active development project in the immediate area is Stadium Square, a nearly $300M mixed-use development located a block and a half west of Cross Street Market, between Federal Hill and M&T Bank Stadium. That project will revitalize three formerly industrial blocks in the historic Sharp-Leadenhall community, with market-rate apartments, affordable veterans housing, technology-focused offices, retail, a new community center, and major infrastructure upgrades, including a refreshed Solo Gibbs Park. CVP also developed 1111 Light Street the home of the acclaimed tech incubator Betamore, Riverside Wharf, home of the MedStar Federal Hill health facility, and 17-21 E. Cross Street, the former M&T Bank branch, which is now home to The Local Fry and former Market favorite Pop Tacos. Elsewhere in Baltimore City, CVP developed the Hilltop Shopping Center in Northwest Baltimore and it is tackling the 1.1M sf redevelopment of Metro West, the vacated former Social Security headquarters between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Greene Street on the Westside of downtown.
