Baltimore is home to roughly 200 unique neighborhoods, each with its own story. Tucked away in the heart of the city, between Inner Harbor and Fell's Point, is the charming enclave known as Little Italy.

Besides the undeniable fun of wandering through the fields, the produce you pick yourself is fresher, more nutritious and often tastes better than anything you'd find in a grocery store.
