Why locals love it

Ranked DC's best place for "Picnic Provisions", Union Market hosts all kinds of food artisans and seasonal fairs. The market runs year round, as it is indoors, with outdoor seating for the warmer months. The vibe is open, with floor to ceiling glass at the market's front and an open floorplan where artisans run their food stands.

Why you should visit it

Like many places with a slant in this city, Union Market is meant to bring that entrepreneurial vibe for food artisans and pop-up artists alike. It functions as an incubator for all kinds of artists these days, with seasonal craft fairs and food trucks just outside the market itself. Local artisans include the likes of Dolcezza, Bidwell, and more.

Special tip

The empanadas are great. Keep your eyes open in the fall for one of the best art/craft fairs in town all year.
