Visited Union Market for the first time for lunch on Saturday while visiting D.C. It's a fantastic experience....lots of vendors with high end choices and variety. We tried several and weren't disappointed. It's one of top 5 food markets in U.S. for a reason!

Rejunivation ongoing for the DC area and NE DC wasn't somewhere I would have thought to visit previously. However, enjoyable visit. many food stands with unique options, bakery, milk, cheeses, etc. Places to sit. A few restaurants as well.

First and foremost, Union Market is a small open air mall with upscale food. A very nice place but in the end it is a mall. Having said that, I love the place. This is an old warehouse re-purposed (or a well disguised new building)...More

The market is on a slight grade, but nothing strenuous. I usually walk over from the nearest Metro and have never noticed the grade, as it is so gradual.

It is like a farmers market. I would think though its more food vendors are here. There is a stall for produce, seafood, and meats, but you can 100 percent eat here.
