The Emporiyum, a two-day food market, coming to Fells Point in April

Food vendors and producers from the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond, along with notable chefs like Bryan Voltaggio, will gather in Baltimore in April for a two-day food market called The Emporiyum.

Joining Baltimore-based companies like Kinderhook Snacks, Woodberry Pantry, Mouth Party Caramels and Hex Ferments at The Emporiyum are specialty food vendors from Washington like Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, Gordy’s Pickle Jar and Luke’s Lobster.

Some vendors are coming from farther away. Bittermilk, a maker of “hand-crafted cocktail mixer compounds” is based in Charleston, S.C., and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is the pride of Columbus, Ohio. Momofuko Milk Bar is the rage in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The Emporiyum, which is scheduled for April 26 and 27, is inspired by the popularity of New York-based events like Smorgasburg, a weekly market held in Brooklyn, and Paper magazine’s annual Super(Duper)Market. Such events not only provide a marketplace for established vendors but act as proving grounds for newcomers and for restaurant-based chefs like Voltaggio.

“When I heard of The Emporiyum, I knew I wanted to participate,” Voltaggio said. “The lineup is great and I am really looking forward to this great spring food event. Baltimore is where I spent a lot of time growing up as a child and where I spend a lot of time with my family on days off.”

The Emporiyum is 11 a.m.-6 p.m. April 26-27 at the Thames Street Wharf building, 1300 Thames St. General admission tickets are $15. For information go to theemporiyum.com.
