This photo shows a vantage point towards Baltimore’s harbor. From behind, is a busy thoroughfare that connects neighborhoods along the harbor. Looking towards the harbor, there is a promenade that also connects neighborhoods with a more scenic route. The port and Fort McHenry are across the water. This photo displays one of Baltimore City’s strengths – its connection on a local as well as a global level.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
