I am so glad we decided to check out the Eastern Market over Memorial Day weekend. While as some posters have suggested it is a typical farmers market, there are plenty of other things to check out. Besides the fresh produce available, there was a flea market going on and some very good food available. Since we were travelling we didn't buy anything but the real draw was the lunch in the main building. I wanted to get breakfast but they were not serving that on the weekends. Instead we had the crab cake sandwich and it was fantastic! I would go back over and over just to eat that - and it was very cheap as well. You order at the counter, pick up your sandwich, eat and go. Pretty simple. Keep in mind that it's cash only.
The rest of the market was neat just to walk around and mingle. Well worth it if you are looking for something local to do while in DC.
