Food from Faidley’s Seafood and other iconic market vendors will be available along with local craft brews and specialty cocktails. Live music by The Kelly Bell Band and a Kids Zone full of games, crafts, and other activities will provide fun for the entire family. And, of course, the world famous Lexington Market Crab Derby will be a highlight of the festivities.

Tickets are $5. The event is free for kids 16 and under. Advance ticket purchase on Eventbrite entitles you to a $5 food credit. Proceeds from the festival will fund ongoing activities, programming, and improvements at the market. More information is available on Facebook and at http://www.lexingtonmarket.com or http://www.crabderby.org.
