More on Crepes at the Market.

By Anna Ditkoff | Posted 6/18/2008

Going to the Baltimore Farmers' Market always makes us feel virtuous. Look at us buying fresh fruits and veggies from local farmers and toting them about in our reusable cloth bags. So what if we spend the majority of our time at the market stuffing our faces with free samples. And we simply do not go to the market without getting a crêpe at the Crepes at the Market stand, even if that means waiting in a line that goes all the way back to the smoothie table--which are damn fine as well. Fortunately, the crêpe stand has its system down with one person taking orders and money as another creates beautiful, golden, impossibly thin, sweet-but-not-too-sweet crêpes filled with a wide variety of ingredients. You can get a crêpe with your choice of two fillings for just $4 for sweet or $5 for savory. But we always pick off the specials board. On our last visit we had a crêpe with Asiago cheese, peppers, onions, spinach, and cilantro ($8) that was wonderfully fresh, with the cilantro adding just the right touch to the creamy cheese. We also scarfed down a blackberry, peaches, banana, and cinnamon sugar crêpe ($6). We don't know how they dream up these combinations but are glad they do. The peaches and bananas were fresh and wonderfully sweet with the blackberries adding a welcome bit of tartness. You really can't go wrong at Crepes at the Market, but you can get there too late. Remember the market closes at noon (or when the vendors sell out), and things start getting crossed off the specials board earlier than that.
