Historic and bustling local market Aug 08, 2010
Located in the heart of the Capitol Hill neighborhood, Eastern Market is where the locals go to pick up fresh and natural meats, fish, eggs, breads, pastries, fruits, vegetables, flowers, etc. Inside the building, one finds meat, fish bakeries, cheeses, as well as a short order breakfast/lunch counter; outside on the weekends one finds a bustling farmers market and flea market full of fresh vegetables and fruits, as well as vendors hawking everything from natural soaps, jewlery, local art, local clothing lines, historic maps, soccer jerseys, crepes, pickles, olives, and probably many more specialties that just keep going. In addition to being a great market for excellent quality foods (the market has high standards for merchants that get to set up shop), it's also a great place to people watch. Families of all demographics and income levels shop here; dogs are welcome at the outside market, and on weekends it's very happening. If you're visiting DC, and have grown weary of all of the monuments and musuems and want to step into a more local environment, walk about 7 blocks down Penn Ave SE, west of the Capitol, or take the blue or orange metro lines towards New Carollton and exit at Eastern Market. Then when you're done, you have your choice of dozens of eateries and bars to unwind in the neighborhood!

I kind of take Eastern Market for granted, living about eight blocks away.  Almost every Saturday morning, I walk down there, usually with a few of my neighbors.  While there, we usually br…Washington DC guidebooks out.  Then I remembered all of the times I've sought out things like this in other countries and cities.
