Union Market

Yesterday, Meyer and I went on an adventure to Union Market in Northeastern DC.  This little over a year old indoor vendor market is revitalization of the 1931 Union Terminal Market. I love wandering around markets. This one certainly excites me not only for the growing food culture but also learning about artisans vendors in DC.

Bidwell Restaurant, one of the newest additions to the market, was a delicious place to stop for lunch.  After reviewing the menu and asking a few questions about gluten free possibilities, I ate roasted oysters with lardons and parmesan and an onion soup with irish cheddar.  Meyer’s selections included a sausage with pickled vegetables and grilled flatbread.

I have a feeling we’ll be making frequent trips to Union Market in the coming months with the area outdoor markets closed until May.  I also can’t resist shopping at Salt & Sundry for great hostess gifts, drooling of knives at DC Sharp, or sipping a great cappuccino from Peregrine Espresso.

Here’s a few photos from our outing.


A few of the other markets across the country that I dream about: Columbus’ North Market, San Francisco’s Ferry Building Market; Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market, and the Nashville Farmer’s Market.  I’m always on the lookout to add another to my collection of favorites!
