Max’s Empanadas (313 S. High St., 410-547-7900, maxempanadas.com) will close on March 22. Owner Max Gonzalez opened his Argentine cafe and coffee shop in early 2010 in a Little Italy storefront. The specialty was, you guessed it, empanadas, which Gonzalez had built up a following for at area farmers' markets.

In a message posted on Facebook on Feb. 28, Gonzalez said that they'll continue to make empanadas for farmers' markets, grocery stores and cafes at a production facility.
