Join us and experience one of the most spectacular outdoor shopping environments in the region. Featuring more than 100 regional artisans, crafters and boutique businesses of ethically-produced goods, the market brings a unique and festive shopping “village” to the heart of downtown DC, plus great snacks and festive treats.
Hundreds of diverse gift items, such as jewelry, pottery, paintings, and textiles will be offered by 60 exhibitors each day.

Without a doubt, this year’s market will be entirely different, but we can all look forward to the 16th annual festival returning. The biggest change and greatest news; we are moving the market to the street. It is necessary and in everyone’s interest (the City, customers, participants, staff and others) to close the entire 2 blocks of F Street from 7th to 9th for the entirety of the market. Thus, in addition to having ample space to accommodate vendors and customers, we would be able to abide by the strict guidelines and protocols to operate safely during the pandemic. All precautions and regulations will be followed, and we will be hyper vigilant concerning everyone’s safety. Other changes we intend to implement, due to pandemic operating procedures, will be a fenced in market that will have one entrance and one exit. There will be a limited number of customers who can enter the market area, only 250 or up to 500 at a time depending on what stage DC is in at the time. We will queue up customers at the entrance. Masks will be required for customers, staff and exhibitors. Preliminary, a stage or entertainment is not allowed. Advanced timed entry may occur.
