Washington, D.C. Shopping



Eastern Market Review

Vibrantly colored produce and flowers; freshly caught fish; fragrant cheeses; and tempting sweets are sold by independent vendors at Eastern Market, which first opened its doors in 1873. On weekends a flea market and an arts-and-crafts market add to the fun. After the redbrick building was gutted by fire in 2007, a $22-million reconstruction project restored it to its original Victorian grandeur. Now it is a vibrant and lively gathering place, complete with entertainment, art showings, and a pottery studio.
