D&D Travel's look at Washington, DC's Eastern Market at Capitol Hill...and the United States Botanic Garden!

Eastern Market, Washington DC's original and premier food & arts market, is located in the heart of the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood and literally a few steps from the Metro stop! It offers arts and crafts and area produce in a fabulous mix of color at 225 7th Street SE. Take a look at just a bit of their offerings:

 

The following 14 images are pretty much self-explanatory!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These figures were our favorite "finds!"

 

There are a number of cafes and eateries alongside the market...Here is a link to more details: http://www.easternmarket-dc.org

 

Another free attraction close to the market at Capitol Hill is the United States Botanic Garden. Once again, most of the images really need no explanation...Enjoy!

 

To the right is the US Capitol building, the dome of which is currently under renovation...not as attractive as usual!
