Day at the Market

The Northeast Market is where Johns Hopkins meets the community. EHE's Community Outreach and Engagement program provides access to Johns Hopkins expertise and care to communities throughout Baltimore and Maryland. Our goal is to improve the ability of everyone to have access to health education and screenings, learn disease prevention, early detection, and treatment. 

Market Day gives our faculty, staff, students, and researchers an opportunity to share their expertise, learn from community members, and deepen their connection with community partners.

    Why The Markets?  

    Baltimore Public Markets have a long history in Baltimore and they remain central points for commerce and gathering. Our presence in the market allows us to engage with the community in a personal and meaningful way.  

    In 2018, we expanded our Day at the Market Program to Lexington Market in partnership with the University of Maryland Medical Center. Together, we bring health, nutrition, and exercise resources to the patrons at Lexington Market.
