Find Beautifully Handcrafted Wares at the Downtown Holiday Market
December 26th, 2018
Situated on the sidewalk on the north side of F Street, stretching from 7th to 9th Streets NW, the Downtown Holiday Market features more than 180 exhibitors throughout its run, and this year’s roster is larger than ever. Through December, there will be around 60 exhibitors each day offering hundreds of diverse gift items, such as jewelry, pottery, paintings, and textiles. Like in previous years, the market rotates exhibitors throughout the event in segmented schedules, allowing for a rich variety of products and businesses to participate. The market is the perfect place to find a special, thoughtful gift that the big retail stores can’t offer.
On top of all the shopping, this year’s market will feature daily performances by bands playing holiday tunes, Latin jazz, acoustic blues, and a whole lot more. There will also be great snacks and festive treats, such as freshly prepared coffee from local roasters and delicious mini-donuts from Migue’s Magnificent Mini Donuts. The Downtown Holiday Market is open daily from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
