Eat Your Way Through Washington D.C.'s Biggest Food Hall
At the booths of Union Market, a massive shopping hall, vendors sell made-from-scratch biscuits, Chesapeake Bay oysters, and reclaimed-wood furniture like that of your favorite boutique hotel. Save time for a rare art ﬁlm at the new Angelika Theater on the top level, too.

Inside Union Market
With a history going back to 1931, Union Market is emerging as one of D.C.'s hot culinary destinations. The marketplace houses local vendors such as Salt & Sundry, Peregrine Espresso, Lyon Bakery, Red Apron Butchery, DC Empanadas, TaKorean, and Rappahannock Oyster Co.
Fresh breads, meats, seafood, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, condiments, spices, yogurt, ice cream, baklava, honey, and seasonal pop-up shops are available.
Am I dreaming...? A dynamic market just 7 minutes by foot from my new Noma flat, fresh organic micro-greens on sale next door to an exquisite artisanal cheese stall. House cured salmon on offer a few steps down the lane from a fresh bread baker. Local Oysters on the half shell served up right across from the hummous/taboulleh/dolma stand. An herbal apothecary just alongside a Tea emporium near a juice bar and a spice bazaar. Pinch me please!
