Washington DC Real Estate Resource Center: Eastern Market Capitol Hill

Imagine a public fresh food market offering everything from local produce to fresh flowers, and everything in between nestled amongst and tree-lined streets and historic row houses in a tight-knit neighborhood atmosphere. Now imagine that same market situated just blocks away from such world-famous sites as the Library of Congress, Capitol Building, and the Supreme Court. Know where you are yet? You're in none other than the renowned Eastern Market in Capitol Hill, one of the oldest residential neighborhoods in Washington, DC. Completed in 1873, Eastern Market is one of the few public markets left in Washington, DC, and the only one retaining its original market function. Eastern Market is home to South Hall, open Tuesday through Sunday and lined with booths of local merchants offering farm-fresh foods, meat, poultry, and dairy products, as well as the North Hall arts and community center.

The old-fashioned Capitol Hill neighborhood is the perfect location for Eastern Market, as residents are known to do their grocery shopping on a daily basis, stopping by local markets and shops on their way home from work. For many Capitol Hill residents, Eastern Market's open-air farmer's market is a weekend tradition. The popular weekend Farmer's Line, Flea Market and Arts and Craft Market offer fresh local produce year round, as well as a diverse mix of arts, crafts, antiques and imports from around the world.

Located at 7th Street and North Carolina Avenue NE, Eastern Market is conveniently located just seven blocks west of the Capitol and one block west of the Eastern Market Metrorail station. Eastern Market's central role within Capitol Hill has not gone unnoticed. The American Planning Association named Capitol Hill's Eastern Market as one of the 10 great neighborhoods through their Great Places in America program, signifying Easter Market's embodiment of Capitol Hill residents' spirit and commitment to their community. Much more than a place to buy groceries and crafts, Eastern Market embodies Washington, DC's diverse culture and brings Capitol Hill residents together. Washington, DC's dedication to the Capitol Hill landmark was never more apparent as it was in June 2009, when the city completed a $22 million rebuilding project to repair Eastern Market's interior after being ravaged by an April 2007 fire. With the market's reopening brought an even firmer recognition that the community gathering place known as Eastern Market is nothing short of a Capitol Hill landmark.
