Downtown Holiday Market Opens Today

Today is the first day of the Downtown Holiday Market, featuring more than 180 local artisans and crafters exhibiting over the next 20 days. The market is located on the sidewalk on F Street between 7th and 9th Streets, NW and will be open daily from 12 noon – 8 pm through December 23.

The online schedule and map features a listing of vendors and their locations.

Opening day features the following entertainment:

12:00 – 2:00pm Dave Chappell duo (swing & blues)
3:30 – 5:30pm Denny Buck (resophonic blues)
6:00 – 8:00pm Bad Hair Day duo (classic rock)

Live performers will be at the market daily; the entertainment schedule is available here.

In years past I’ve enjoyed perusing artwork, sampling food, and shopping for decorative items for my home, as well as a variety of gifts.

The market is produced by the Downtown DC Business Improvement District (BID)and Diverse Markets Management (DMM), which also manages the Liberty Market on Tuesday evenings.
