Day at the Market

The Day at the Market is a multifaceted program of outreach and engagement sponsored by the Johns Hopkins East Baltimore campus.

The Northeast Market is where Johns Hopkins meets the community and is an important venue where Johns Hopkins can bridge-the-disconnect regarding the lack of access to resources and information. Our hope is that the individuals we interact with will receive pertinent educational materials, answers to questions from experts, and services or resources that will help them make positive behavioral changes for health.

Our Johns Hopkins faculty, staff, students and researchers participate in Market Day and use this program as a learning tool for being a better partner with the community, as a dissemination vehicle to return what they have learned to the community, and as a means to deepen interactions with community partners and community members. Moreover, faculty, staff, students, and researchers in serving the community realize that this is a venue where they too may be educated by the community who will benefit from their work.

Day at the Market is hosted at the Northeast Market at 2101 E Monument Street, Baltimore, MD 21205 on the 2nd and last Wednesday of each month from 10 am to 2 pm. Additional Market Days, centered usually on one topic, occur the 1st Tuesday of each month from Noon to 1:30 pm; and Saturdays from 12 Noon to 2 pm. Each month we focus on two or more national health observances. See our event dates for 2019.
