  • I have to admit, I expected this market to be bigger. Maybe it is in the summer. We picked up some good fresh produce here, and also some meat. It's very close to a Metro stop. 
  • We were here on a sunny autumn day and spent a good two hours here enjoying the variety of vendors selling their wares and great food stands as well. The prices were good and there were a lot of uniqu...  more »
  • If you have the time this is fun, we did on Saturday with street market, don't think I'd recommend trip if week day as not much variety indoors. We skipped the pancake queue as too long and can get br...  more »

  • Great little market open seven days a week. Hornet, they have their weekly farmers market on Saturdays. Yoy can find art, food and jewelry and different items you might not find somewhere else. The Amish cheeses and meat in so yummy. Go inside the building, they have a great variety of international foods, flowers and fresh sea food. On the end of the market they have pastries that make you mouth melt.
  • Going to the Eastern Market is more than just doing my groceries. It's a place where people talk to each other, enjoy themselves with colors, smells, textures and tastes of local produce, flowers, arts and crafts. You will find people from Mali to Poland bringing their cultures, local design companies with great ideas and the artists that bring life to the place. Can't go without drinking the lemonade from the Amish family from PA that sells goat cheese and curds.
  • Amazing selection of meats and vegetables. Got smoked mozzarella ravioli and Italian sausage to make for a dinner party. One of the best meals I've had in a while.
  • Small farmers market of fresh fruit, vegetables and some crafts. Inside are about a dozen deli places with fresh meats, smoked goods and ready-to-eat savoury foods. On the exterior are coffee shops and speciality stores (including a chocolate shop). Can get busy around brunch (2pm) especially the shops near Penn Av. A great gem for the area.
  • One of DC's remnants from its past that gives it uniqueness and charm. The flea market on Sunday is a must for anyone looking for interesting and eclectic finds.
