The star food was Guacamole BLT at Neopol. Market style allows family members to get different foods. DC Dosa was fair. Some great foods, but if you want water that’s not been sitting in a plastic bottle, pack your own. Also, Indoor seating at a...More

If you want to eat, and I mean REALLY eat, you head to Union Market. Bring the kids, let everyone pick something from their favorite vendor (we love Takorean and Peregrine Coffee), and enjoy a beer or cocktail while listening to live music. Stay observant...More

The food offerings are eclectic and delicious, honed through the competitive process of the food hall. Prices are high — but what did you expect? Public transport to this place is not super convenient, but there is a big parking lot for you drivers. There...More

Lots of pop-up retail assembled together with various food stalls (and a permanent restaurant) make this space worthy of a few hours of your DC tourist time.

The selection and variety of food offerings are both excellent —whether you want to eat there or carry out. The parking is much more convenient than Eastern Market. We went there to purchase fresh meat from the butcher for home, but we plan to come...More

As far as I remember, it's mostly food vendors. You can eat at some of them and there's a very nice sit down restaurant at one end.
