    Having enjoyed all the sights of central DC we wandered to this part of the City on Sat morning to see a bit of the 'norm'. The market is a busy vibrant area with an indoor section offering all manner...  more »

    Escape the tourist crowds and take the Metro to this old fashioned small covered market, located in a charming residential neighborhood. A glimpse of old DC.  more »

    I found this market to be small and dirty especially on the inside and would not recommend coming here. The only stand even slightly worthwhile to visit was the pastry stand inside. However, other tha...  more »

    Eastern Market has a good selection of arts and crafts with a DC vibe and feel. There are also stands with fruits and vegetables which are grown locally when in season. Inside you can find meats and cheeses and handmade salads and pastas and a few places to eat. There are a decent amount of places to eat around the area as well. It's a great place to spend the afternoon or morning on a Saturday or Sunday.

    We bought fresh fish at Southern Maryland seafood, $70.oo worth and all 3 items were very fresh. We bought a multi fruit pie and garlic bread also excellent! We went back today and bought vegetables and rib steaks! Can't wait to grill them! They looked great!

    Interesting place to grab lunch or shop for fresh meats and cheeses. We came a weekend and walked the whole arts and crafts area which was awesome. Got some great handmade and one of a kind jewelry.

    The flea market was awesome and full of local made goods. The covered market was really cool but mostly good for buying uncooked foods you want to prepare yourself later. There was one food vendor in the covered market but multiple outside at the flea market.

    Hands down 'the' farmers market of DC. It's been in operation for over 100 years, survived two fires, and is still going strong. Many of the vendors are family owned and local, and it's still the best place to go on the weekend for that farmers market experience. Lots of stalls, tons of vendors selling literally almost everything you can think of, and great food options.

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
