eastern market, d.c.

Sharing some photos from a recent visit to D.C.’s Eastern Market. I love a good outdoor market and this visit did not disappoint with plenty of great crafts, food, fine art and flowers. Fun fact: Eastern Market is one of America’s oldest outdoor market at 136 years running. Enjoy!

SoWa holiday market.

On Sunday I visited the SoWa Holiday Market for the first time. Although I’d heard good things I arrived with pretty low expectations. I’ve been to other holiday craft markets and was envisioning a collection of kind ofย chotchkie ornaments and snow globes. I have to say that I was SO pleasantly surprised by the quality of really everything at this market. I was actually overwhelmed by how many things I loved and wanted. I kept myself in check and onlyย made two purchases but the damage could have been much worse. Here are just a sampling of the photos I took.
