BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Northeast Market voluntarily closed Tuesday after a video of rats running around inside went viral on Facebook.

It’s not even a week after video of rats in a Lexington Market bakery display went viral.

In a statement, the market’s management said, “Baltimore Public Markets is currently working with the Baltimore City Health Department and a third party pest control company to investigate any recent activity that has been reported to us. We are implementing new protocol across all the Public Markets to ensure that we are addressing any issues immediately and in the best interest of all.”

Northeast Market will open as usual on Wednesday.

The market sent our a statement that said they are “continuing to thoroughly treat every area of our premises; and the problem has been contained and resolved.”
