Eastern Market

Housing a delicious lunch counter, many butchers and vegetable vendors, and even more outdoor clothing and toiletries vendors, Eastern Market is a DC mainstay.

A fantastic Sunday morning activity – Eastern Market is one of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday or Sunday morning. First off, just browsing all of the shopping stands is a good time; you don't even have to buy anything. Second, if you like unique handmade jewelry and accessories, or have an appreciation for second-hand decor or local photography, then this is an excellent destination.

The indoor part of the market has a plethora of fresh veggies, pastries, meat, and fish to choose from that are exclusive to Eastern Market. For example, the seafood stand sells soft-shell crabs, octopus, and even blowfish. At the pastry stand, you can't go wrong with an apple turnover or carrot cake cupcake, all fresh and fantastic.

Citysearch Editorial Review – Eastern Market is D.C.'s oldest continually operated fresh food public market. Located in the heart of the Capitol Hill neighborhood, it serves as a destination for food, cultural events and handmade goods. At the center is the 19th century, brick-built South Hall, inside of which local merchants sell flowers as well as fresh bread, meat, cheese, poultry and dairy products. The North Hall is used as an events venue and community center, and on weekends the open-air sections surrounding the building feature local farmers and artists selling produce and crafts amid live music and heavy foot traffic. Though a fire destroyed the South Hall's butcher and bakery stalls in 2007, city leaders rallied to restore the building, which was reopened in June 2009.

DC's outdoor shopping experience – Colorful food, colorful people, community atmosphere: D.C. just wouldn't be D.C. without Eastern Market. It is unpretentious and unapologetic and one of the best people-watching places in town on a Saturday morning. Love the "blues," of course, at Market Lunch (if I arrive early enough to miss the crazy lines) but I also love the crepe man who makes some of the best Parisian savory crepes on the planet (I mean, what's not to love about Gruyere, tomatoes, fresh basil wrapped in sublime deliciousness).
