Where

Another local experience with plenty of history is the Eastern Market. The market was started in 1873 and was based off the 1791 plans by Pierre L’Enfant to have a space in Washington for local markets. Since then, it has carried on the tradition of being a community hub for the Capitol Hill neighborhood, where vendors offer local food, produce, and handmade arts and crafts. There is even dedicated space for community events.

The Eastern Market includes the South Hall Market (indoor vendors offering fresh produce, flowers, baked goods, cheese, meats and more), the Fresh Tuesdays Farmers Market (taking place 3 pm to 7 pm on Tuesdays with traditional farmers market fare), The Weekend Farmers Line (open-air, year-round market on weekends for local farmer offerings), The Weekend Outdoor Market (featuring local crafts and art), and the North Hall Event Space (community center that can be rented for events, weddings, meetings and more).

To find a complete list of all of the vendors that participate in the offering, check out the vendor list.

      Wonderful market

      5/ 5

      Tuesday through Sunday – stop by Eastern Market and truly get a flavor for the people of the city. You’ll find everything from homemade arts and jewelry to the finest meats, cheeses, jellies, and snacks. Given its historic nature, it’s amazing just how wonderful a market it is!
