Sunday night, Eastern Market Main Street kicked off the second annual Market week – April 29 to May 6 – with Night at the Market in Eastern Market’s North Hall. The event featured small bites and beverages from 7th Hill Pizza, Acqua Al 2, Atlas Brew Works, Bowers Fancy Dairy Products, DIAGEO, District Taco, Eastern Market, Hank’s Oyster Bar, Joselito, Mr. Henry’s, Prego Deli, Right Proper Brewing, and Tortilla Café. Music was provided by Kiss & Ride, the popular blues ensemble with vocalist Carly Harvey.
The commercial corridor surrounding Eastern Market represents a unique blend of historic and modern, with shopping, dining, and entertainment for all ages. According to EMMS, Market Week aims to “connect the Capitol Hill and wider DC community to small and local businesses, encouraging customers to invest in their local economy while fostering a walkable, vibrant, and inclusive neighborhood.”
Market Week celebrates restaurants, retailers, and services with a Passport to guide visitors through the corridor and a week of games, events, and activities.
