Mom’s Organic Market: My favorite organic grocery store in Baltimore. 

Belvedere Square Market: A wide variety of vendors like Plantbar, Atwaters, Hex Ferments and more. A fun spot no matter what time of day!

R. House: Similar to Belvedere Square, but a larger, more open space. Great vendors and an awesome bar! 

32nd St. Farmer’s Market: The smaller of the two more popular farmers markets in Baltimore. I prefer this one! 

Baltimore Farmer’s Market: The larger of the two more popular farmers markets in Baltimore. Great produce selection in the Summer. 


Plantbar Belvedere: Located in Belvedere Square, this is my favorite juice bar in Baltimore.

Zia’s: The sister juice bar to Plantbar, located in Towson.

Pure Raw JuiceGreat selection of smoothie and acai bowls as well as pre-made juices. 

Liquid Earth: A funky juice bar and cafe in Fells Point

|| COFFEE ||

Atwater’s Bakery: Unreal treats, coffee and CHICKEN SALAD.  Also try their vegan brownie. Locations all over Baltimore.

Order & Chaos Coffee: A cool space located in Federal hill. Bulletproof coffee fiends, get yours here. 

Ceremony Coffee Roasters: Delicious coffee in Mt. Vernon, a quaint, historic Baltimore neighborhood. 

 Artifact Coffee: Such a cool space in Hampden, and obviously, delicious coffee.

|| FOOD ||

 Atwater’s Bakery: ($$) Get the chicken salad. Or soup. No get the chicken salad (either on the Field Greens salad or the chicken salad sandwich). 

The Bluebird: ($$) This cocktail room is our absolute favorite place to grab a drink in Baltimore. Cool space and a great drink menu.

Verde Pizza: ($$) Our second favorite pizza in Baltimore. 

Paulie Gee's: ($$) Honestly, Paulie Gee's is giving Verde a run for it's money in my book. It may take the spot for #1 pizza in my heart in Baltimore. The Mo Cheeks pizza is TO DIE FOR with those pickled onions omg. UPDATE: Paulie Gee’s stole my heart for pizza in Baltimore. But it’s better in the winter, because their AC is not great, and those two brick ovens sure do keep the restaurant warm.

Barcocina: ($$) Great nightlife and good brunch food! Located in Baltimore's historic Fells Point neighborhood

Lee’s Pint & Shell: ($$) Our favorite restaurant/bar spot. The food is good, but it's also a fun place to grab a drink! 

Clavel: ($$) Best tacos and margaritas I’ve ever had (and I don’t even like margs, yet drink these…k.). I refuse to eat tacos anywhere else because Clavel’s are so good. They don’t take reservations, and it can be hard to get a table, so go early or late and be patient…it’s worth it!

The Food Market: ($$$) GREAT food and drinks! I am always happy to eat here. Be sure to get a reservation. Everything is absolutely delicious. 

Birroteca: ($$$) I LOVE Birroteca. The food is fresh and always tasty. Yale and I like to sit at the bar for dinner. 

Woodberry Kitchen: ($$$) Hands down my favorite restaurant in Baltimore. Incredible food and the ambiance is awesome. 

Gunther and Co.: ($$$) Our Canton spot. Gunther is a quick walk from our old house, which obviously makes it a fav. Plus, the food is UNREAL. 

Azumi: ($$$) My favorite sushi restaurant in Baltimore. Definitely expensive, but well worth the price for fresh sushi. 

R. House: ($-$$) A trendy food hall in Remington. Not like a mall food hall, let’s not get confused! We love going here to try new vendors’ goodies! Fun atmosphere.

|| Shopping ||

Trohv: Trohv is one of my favorite stores in Baltimore. They have stunning window displays which easily draw you into the store. They have awesome cards, home decor and gifts for all.

In Watermelon Sugar: This is one of my favorite gift boutiques. It is the perfect place to go and grab a house warming gift or an ornament for the holidays. 

Crystals, Candles and CauldronsThis is where I get all of my crystals in Baltimore. It can be difficult to find, but they have a beautiful variety of crystals and other woo-woo goods.
