Some of the nice malls to check out are:

Towson Town Center
The Mall in Columbia
White Marsh Mall
Arundel Mills Mall (the largest mall in the area)

In the city of Baltimore itself there is not a lot of retail, however, many neighborhoods such as Canton and Fells Point have lots of neat little shops you may want to take a look at.

I am also looking for a great grocery store. I have no problem with driving but am looking for clean and well stocked with good variety. The Safeway on Boston is not it. Thanks so much!

Default Wegman's

For a decent grocery store in the area, go to Wegman's in Hunt Valley. It's worth the drive for great quality and variety, as well as decent prices compared to grocery stores within the city. Best time to go is later in the evening on a weeknight. Or if you like hundreds of people wondering around aimlessly and blocking the aisles, then go on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

As with all things in Baltimore it really depends on what you're looking for. You asked about Malls, so I'm guessing you're looking for apparel shopping. Towson and Arundel Mills are my favorites. Towson has the best store selction and Arundel has the best deals as it is mostly an outlet mall. But don't discount the abundance of boutiques in the area. From baby, to women, to mens. It takes some research as the price points in these places vary. The boutiques have the best selections if you're looking for something special. Check the local papers (City, B, Urbanite) They all have ads for boutiques. Also paper doll magazine that comes out quarterly is dedicated to shopping in Baltimore. There are also places like Filene's and TJ Maxx in Towson and other nearby areas. Shopping inside the city is still pretty inconvienient. Most boutiques are located in little clusters in different neighborhoods. If you go to check out one, usually there are at least two more right next door. Anyone who says theres no shopping in Baltimore hasn't done their research

If you're looking for a good place to buy food, there is a massive farmer's market under the JFX every Sunday morning.

Default Food, food

We love Sophia's Place, a Polish delicatessen in the north shed of Broadway Market in Fells Point. Whenever we go, we first stop at the H&S baker's factory store on Fleet Street. About every brand of bread you can think of -- Paterakis bakes them all! How does three loaves for a dollar grab you? We freeze them and use when needed.
Another great place is Trinacria's, a Sicilian grocery and delli, on Paca Street, between Franklin and Mulberry. Avoid the lunch hour and much of Saturday (Closed Sunday, Monday). Has great buys on wine.
Northwest Baltimore has Russian stores galore. I like the International Food Market at Reisterstown Road and Seven Mile Lane (Colonial Village shopping center), but there are others. IFM also carrries prepared food, if you want to try cabbage dishes and so on.
The same area has several rock-bottom price fruit and vegetable shops. I usually go to the one on Patterson Avenue, across from Reisterstown Road Plaza.
Across the plaza, on Reisterstown at Clarke's lane, is a pretty good Mexican grocery. Stuff you never knew existed. They also have a lunch counter that seems to do brisk business with Guatemalans.
