Got Crab? If not Gaffney's has a steady supply ready to eat. Pick some up to take home, or eat them right at the market in our cafe area!
At Gaffney's, we've been in business for over 35 years. Since we started back in 1971 our Chesapeake watermen have been crabbin' the bay every day to bring out the best God-given seafood a person can find. The crab don't just jump onto your plate, ya hear me? Our watermen are up with the sun and off to find where the crab are moving, using all their years of crabbin' skill and their knowledge of water and weather. We pride ourselves on being independant of any conglomerate and work to get the freshest crab back to our docks every day. Throughout the year we travel miles of water to cover the vast harvesting grounds of the bay. Over these miles we check our hundreds of pots daily for the jimmies and sooks that make Gaffney's the freshest crabs you'll find.

 Under the guidance of Rebecca Green, Kursten Pickup, and Jess Wyatt, refugee youths created a mural at the market. The mural was installed on the IRC building and tells the story of the journey of the refugee from their homeland to their new home in Baltimore.


The IRC hosts a drum circle every week.
Fruits, vegetables, art, music, prepared food,  badminton, chalk drawing, EBT, Debit service and more. With so much going on at the Highlandtown Farmers Market we understand you may be a little overwhelmed by the amount of things  to do on Thursday evenings from 4 to 8pm. So check back here weekly to learn the who's who of the market as we introduce our supporting vendors, merchants artists, and organizations.

Featured Organization: The International Rescue Committee in Baltimore.
The IRC provides opportunities for refugees to thrive in America. Each year, thousands of refugees are invited by the U.S. government to seek safety and freedom.  Forced to flee conflict or persecution, many have survived for years against incredible odds. They step off the plane with next to nothing but their dignity, hope and determination.  In Baltimore and many other regional offices across the country, the IRC helps them rebuild their lives.
