Eastern Market has long been an anchor of its neighborhood. As the neighborhood has rebounded in the last decade or so, the market has as well. It includes a seafood vendor, several meat purveyors, and some prepared foods. The space is small (it was designed...More

What was advertised as bustling vibrant marketplace with various vendors selling varied products, is actually just a few vendors selling foodstuff inside an old building. Pathetic really. You are better off going to a Trader Joe’s. Was it the day? We visited on a Thursday....More

It sounded like an amazing market... Maybe something along the lines of Pike Place or something similar. We walked in, looked at maybe 10 stands selling some fresh produce, meat, fish.... And that was it. In and out within 5 or 10 minutes. At one...More

I live close to the market but find little of interest inside other than the deli and the cheese shop. The produce vendors outside make a visit worthwhile on the weekend. There are some interesting restaurants and stores on the same street and in the...More

We visited with a large group on a Saturday morning. The market was busy, and very vibrant. There are several merchants from a lunch counter to fish market, meat market, flower stand, cheese shop, pasta place, produce markets and a bakery. It was a neat...More

I had one of the best soups ever from a vendor, and great dumplings from another vendor. Also, there was a tiny seating area for the eight of us.

We always enjoy coming here when visiting DC to pick up fresh meat or seafood and produce for dinner. Unfortunately, the outdoor stalls were not open when we came, but the indoor vendors had plenty to choose from. Great market experience, and convenient to the...More
