If you’re not game to get your craft on yourself you can always go buy something someone else has made in on of DC’s many outdoor markets. The new upstart in the bunch is the Downtown DC Holiday Market on the site of the old convention center at NW 11th and H St. The first day is tomorrow, December 1st and will continue on every Thursday through Sunday, from 11am to 7pm till December 21st.
Formerly the whippersnapper of the bunch is Western Market in Adams Morgan at Marie Reed School Plaza. They’re a Saturday-only 10am to 5pm market that will end their second season on December 17th.
The old warhorse of the bunch is Eastern Market which has run a Saturday market since 1978. The Sunday market‘s not quite as old, hailing back to 1983 on the same location but under different direction and with somewhat different vendors.
