The Union Market building on 6th street across from Gallaudet University in NoMa is just about ready to kick things off, and this weekend’s Union Market Picnic is shaping up to be a real nice kickoff for the newly renovated market space.  Running from 12 to 6 on Sunday, there will be some incredible food by local places like Hill Country and Jeff Black (of recent RAMMY fame) and Red Apron and Pitango Gelato. In addition, Christylez Bacon and DJ Tariq will be keeping the tunes flowing at the new space.

Tickets in advance (until tomorrow at noon) are just $5. After that, tickets are $7.

The building will open this fall for good, with anchor tenants including Peregrine Espresso, Red Apron Butchery, Dolcezza, Lyon Bakery and Tricking Springs Creamery, plus the site is the final resting place for the Avoca railcar restaurant that was Capital City Diner. 

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
