Walking in the city this beautiful Saturday, Amy and I wandered over to Eastern Market, which is just beyond our 1/2 mile radius, but a lovely walk nonetheless. The historic market, which burned last spring, is being restored at a good pace, and the temporary market, open since last August across the street, is booming.
Since the old market is being restored and the temporary market is across the street, officials have closed 7th Street, and a slew of stalls has sprung up – mostly crafts, but today we got some amazing locally made salsa and chips for our pre-dinner snack.
Adjacent to the temporary market is the flea market, which runs on weekends. Some real nuggets…
Yum! Cities are great, and should always be tasty in as many ways as possible.
