Foodie Fun at Empori-Yum Baltimore

On the weekend of April 16-17, the third installment of Baltimore’s Empori-yum food market hit the city, offering foodies the chance to sip, sample and shop with some of the East Coast’s best artisan food producers. The event, held in a former Best Buy on Pratt Street, showcased food and beverages, with plenty of samples, snacks and meals for purchase and the opportunity to shop for food products from desserts to cocktail mixers and everything in between.

Here are some of my photos from the event:

Empori-yum was awesome. The space was large and accommodating, there were plenty of sample bites to try and all kinds of artisan food vendors from up and down the East Coast, including plenty of vendors local to the DC/Baltimore area. My standouts were Buredo’s sushi burritos, Hex Ferments kombucha, Rujero Singani Bolivian brandy and B’more Tasteful pies and desserts.

After our visit to the Empori-yum, my husband and I walked over to Fells Point, where we stumbled upon the Privateer (“Pirate” in layman’s terms) Festival. We roamed the neighborhood and ended up at at The Wharf Rat pub for beer flights and a dinner of delicious pub fish and chips.


The next day we left Baltimore after a behind-the-scenes tour of Oriole Park at Camden Yards and headed to DC for the Cochon 555 event.  More on that to come!
