The newly renovated Lexington Market still awaits its most famous vendor — Faidley’s Seafood.

The market officially opened in October after a $45 million redo and now hosts 23 food stalls and 10 kiosks that will switch up vendors. It will be at 90% capacity once the remaining vendors, including Faidley’s, move in later this year.
