Shop More Than Just Food at Eastern Market in DC

Eastern Market describes itself as more than a market, but rather “a community hub for the Capitol Hill neighborhood and a cultural destination for visitors from around the world.” Indoors or outside, for an event or just for some groceries, you know you’re in for a treat when you visit any of the plentiful vendors offering food and other goods at this longtime Capitol Hill hotspot. 

You might head to the indoor merchants of The South Hall Market, where you can pick up produce and pasta for tonight’s dinner, enjoy a bbq sandwich with homemade coleslaw, or choose a bouquet of fresh flowers to surprise a loved one. Or perhaps you’ll stop by the Fresh Tuesdays Farmers Market, treating yourself to roasted nuts, gourmet salsa, or your favorite fresh fruits and vegetables. You might not be in the market for food items at all, opting instead to stop by The Weekend Outdoor Market to seek out the perfect antique, choose a gift for an upcoming special event, or simply support local artists. 

However you enjoy it, Eastern Market truly is more than just a market. Each facet of this hub offers something a bit different than the last so that, no matter what it is you’re looking for, you’ll have an experience here that you won’t soon forget.
