This place is no ordinary farmers market. Eastern Market is a notable must-see — it landed in the number 3 position on the 2010 AOL Travel News of Washington’s top attractions! That's even ahead of the Smithsonian!
This awesome, historic market has been in continuous operation ever since 1873. From Tuesday through Sunday, over a dozen indoor merchants regularly sell their produce, meat and poultry, baked goods, seafood, deli fare, sweets, and flowers, and depending on the day, more than 100 jewelry makers, crafters, potters, photographers, artists, and antique dealers set up camp too. On Saturdays and Sundays, and during mild weather, many gourmet, specialty foods and regional farm stalls set up outdoors, adding even more too see at this must-see attraction! And, to top it off, most weekends, live entertainers contribute to the festivities as well.
