Just because the weather is getting colder doesn’t mean that you have to give up your weekly trips to the farmers market for your fresh produce. Instead head to one of DC’s three indoor farmers markets and stay warm and toasty while you do your shopping.
Located at 1309 5th St NE and tucked behind DC’s wholesale market the recently renovated Union Market offers more than just farm fresh produce and meats. Open five days a week, the market has a variety of small restaurants and cafes to choose from if you are looking for a new place to dine after you finish shopping. In addition to food, the market also offers special events such as drive-in movies, book signings, and food and drink tasting parties.
A stones throw from the US Capitol, Eastern Market resides at 227 7th St SE. Eastern Market is DC’s longest continually open market. First opened in 1873, Eastern Market has become a staple of DC life. Open Tuesday through Sunday, the market offers baked good, fresh produce, and quality meats year round. On the weekends artisans and used goods vendors set up a flea market around the Eastern Market building. So be sure to stop by and pick up a trinket or two along with your hot house tomatoes.
