The Downtown Holiday Market returns this year, featuring a variety of local shop owners, crafters, and other businesses in an outdoor market format centered at 8th & F NW. The market is open daily from noon until 8, and will also have a pretty eclectic range of entertainment, with artists as diverse as the Shakespeare Theater Company’s Candide cast and a Klezmer band as well as a “Jewish a capella” group. It’s worth strolling through on a few different occasions- several booths do change weekly since the market goes on for so long. The market is a fine way to support local businesses and crafters while checking out some vendors that you may not run into at Eastern Market or your other usual haunts.

Edited to add: WLDC author Erin McCann would like to make sure you know that the Market has what she believes to be the best donuts ever.
