Union Market DC

After hearing about it for so many weeks, I finally made my way to Union Market!

Instead of brunch, one of my roommates suggested get some of our fresh air for the day and walk to NoMA with her. After a pit stop for some coffee, we walked from our Dupont home down Florida Ave and arrived at Union Market.

When you first walk up, it’s not entirely what you might expect. There are butchers and wholesale warehouses and it looks as though nothing has been renovated in quite a few years.. but then as you turn the corner you run across an all white building, with orange accents that looks a bit out of place.

You have arrived!

Tada!

Union Market is a DC foodie and gifters paradise. Many of DC’s most loved restaurants have mini outposts inside. You can find empanadas, bagels, a diner, a wine bar, fresh meats and artisan cheeses, a chocolate shop, a tea shop, an oyster bar, a knife shop, a macaroon shop.. to name a few.

There is also a shop section called Sweet and Savory, devoted entirely to home goods and gifts. Here are some of my favorite views from the market:

I think that my favorite part was the artisan cheese section — they have an unbelievable variety and if you can get a spot, you have the option to do a tasting with 3 different types of wines and cheeses.

Who will go with me next time? Perhaps for brunch?

Yes PLEASE

I highly suggest making the trek, if you don’t want to walk like we did there is plenty of parking, or the NoMA metro stop is only a few blocks away. Sample everything you can, and come hungry — you wont be disappointed!

The new DC Meet Market!

Something you should know about me, I love farmers markets and flea markets. It’s one of the reasons I’m so often at Eastern Market on Capital Hill… just something about the atmosphere — food, crafts and jewelry combined with music playing and tons of people strolling about on a warm day? I’m easily sold.

Thanks to my daily roundup emails from Refinery29 (they have DC specific content) I just learned that there is a new pop up market coming to the district!

The DC Meet Market was created around the idea of local vendors showcasing their goods!There will be artwork, crafts, clothes and other handmade goods from DC’s finest as well as food, DJ’s and other live music…sign me up!


When: The first Saturday of every month from April to December 11am-5-pm
Where: 15th and P Street NW in Logan Circle

Here are some pictures of last years Meet Market from their  website:

 

Check out their vendor list for this weekends setup (I know I already fell in love with this bracelet ) , and maybe see you there!
