The 18th annual Downtown Holiday Market and outdoor shopping village, kicked off the holiday season this past weekend.
The market is open daily from noon to 8pm, and aims to support small businesses and entrepreneurs across the region, welcoming shoppers for a safe, secure and enhanced shopping experience.
This year’s market covers over two entire blocks of F Street NW, from 7th to 9th Streets NW, with a main grand entrance located on the sidewalk in front of the National Portrait Gallery. According to the organizers, the outdoor shopping village’s expansive footprint allows for wide aisles for shopping, food and live entertainment. The retail lineup features more than 70 exhibitors including Black-owned and minority-owned businesses.
This market is one of our favorite traditions. You can see over 70 vendors here, including our Made in D.C. businesses. – Mayor Bowser
