29. Eastern Market Washington DC
Eastern Market in Washington DC should be re-named “Eastern Impulse”. This place is less a market than it is an impulse buyer’s worst nightmare. You may go there fully planning to get a few veggies and fruit for the week, and end up leaving with a rug, a painting, a set of jewelery, some handmade soap, and a chihuahua.
Okay, you probably won’t find a chihuahua on sale at Eastern Market, not yet at least!
But Eastern Market is serious business I tell ya. I love it! It’s truly a fun thing to do in Capitol Hill DC. I’ll take you on a quick trip of our visit there last saturday.
Eastern Market-Capitol Hill DC
It was a fun day with awesome weather. This is a spot that you’ll definitely need to check the weather before taking the trip.
You can either shop in the indoor market and or head to the outdoor market for all types of nitnacks, jewelery, rugs, and every type of hand-made goods you can imagine.
We loved the amazing art. Some of the stuff was a bit pricey, but you could find a host of different items in almost every imaginable price range.
It was awesome seeing so much fresh fruit in early spring.
We stopped in for a second to check out the flower vendors at the indoor Eastern Market location. It was seriously a great time hanging out in Capitol Hill and checking out everything Eastern Market in DC has to offer.
Eastern Market, Washington DC is close to the metro and in an awesome part of town. From the flower vendors with the most beautiful arrangement of flowers, to the arts and craft and paintings, to the handmade soaps and shea butter you won’t be dissappointed spending a day on the weekend browsing at Eastern Market.
What a fun thing to do in Washington DC.
