Eastern Market – A Cheap Post-Grad’s Dream!

After spending Friday night recuperating from the week, watching a terrible yet engrossing Lifetime movie, and turning in early (hey, we all need it sometimes), my roommate and I woke up early Saturday and took a trip to Eastern Market, which can be accurately described as Heaven on Earth. Turns out we had SEVERELY underestimated the awesomeness of this place. I guess we were still bitter about having to leave our beloved Rochester Public Market…but from the minute we stepped off the metro (longest. ride. ever.), we suddenly forgot how angry we were and were overcome by delicious smells, beautiful colors, and the sounds of happy people spending their Saturday morning doing a little light shopping.

We were immediately drawn to the shiny jewelry (naturally…we’re girls), where we found all these beautiful, unique, and handmade items for between $5-$15!

so many bangles, felt like I was back in India!

Our other favorite stands included the endless comfy scarves and some Turkish mosaic lamps with intricate designs and vibrant colors.

scarves…my weakness!

All this before we even got to the fruits and veggies sections! And just when we thought the day couldn’t get any better…FREE SAMPLES.

Liana and some delicious apples!

Hot apple cider on a fall morning – is there anything better?

And just to prove that this place was legit – a giant pumpkin:

Wouldn’t be fall without giant pumpkins!

Just before we left, we discovered this beautiful tapestry/rug shop where we decided we definitely need to invest in some decorations and wall art for the apartment.

And the best part is (at least according to me), it’s all just a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol Building and National Mall!

I’ll never get sick of this view!

Needless to say, Liana and I will be working weekly Eastern Market trips into our schedule from now until forever.
