Tidbits of tasty treats, gourmet gifts, and premium spirits —a food and drink festival/marketplace like no other! The Empori-yum is coming to Baltimore for its fourth season on April 1st-2nd. Featuring over 90 specialty vendors for pay-as-you-go lunch, dessert, beverages, and more, this is one event the foodie in you does not want to miss!

Experience Ceremony Coffee’s exquisite espresso, Cream Cruiser’s homemade ice cream sandwiches (both pictured above), and Buredo’s unique burrito-style sushi rolls. It’s the perfect combination of breakfast, lunch and dessert!


If you are on a diet it’s the perfect time to indulge in a cheat day—you definitely won’t want to miss out on Egglo, a Manhattan-based “waffle cone” that will make your wildest childhood dessert dreams come true. If you’re not in the mood for dessert and want something more savory, Luke’s Lobster is a concierge favorite that specializes in seafood rolls and chowders.


While the food is the main highlight of this event, the shopping destinations and vendors are not to be missed. Baltimore in a Box curates locally loved crab-flag goodies for the “hon” in your life. Another hot spot is The Capital Candy Jar, which features hand-crafted goodies like festively (and monumentally) decorated candies.

There are three ticket options for Saturday and Sunday: General Admission ($15) opens at 1:30pm; Early General Admission starts at 11:00am; VIP Admission begins at 10:00am and comes with an exclusive gift and access to special sips and bites as the doors open. Children 12 and under are free! While the event is suited for all ages, a 21+ wristband at the door ensures you’re eligible for high quality spirits, custom cocktails, and the best brews on the harbor.
