29. Eastern Market Washington DC

Posted at February 28, 2011 by 14 Comments

Welcome! Check out our featured DC area business Maids in Black, DC Cleaning Services.

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.

      cannot agree more with your views on property inesmtevnt vs stock inesmtevnt. Property inesmtevnt has an added problem of low liquidity (though the same goes for some stocks with low turnover). I am “stocking” up, just like you. And thanks for your sharing regarding having targets for your portfolio, I’ve just amended my retirement plan with a new sheet on buy-in targets.

      I just received a new copy and my first roactien is that the Figures (Illustrations) are far too small to read without a good magnifying glass.The illustrations should have been at least 50% larger. Why even bother to include them as they are? A sorry defect for a $30 book. I would have been quite happy to have paid $5 more to get a book with figures which are readily accessible.

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked
    hard on. Any recommendations?

  7. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Sekdom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and interesting,
    and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something that too few men annd women are speaking intelligently
    about. Iam very happy that I found this in my search for omething
    relating to this.
