Seasonal food, live entertainment, 150 vendors. 60 rotating booths — why do your holiday shopping anywhere else? The Downtown Holiday Market has returned for its 15th season and promises to be a collection of the best crafters, boutique businesses, and artists selling ethically produced goods. You can grab jewelry for the women in your life, pottery and art for the hard-to-shop-for folks, and interesting textiles that will please even the toughest critic. Plus, the Downtown Holiday Market is so beautifully decorated and offers some of the flavors of the holidays, so you can’t help but be filled with cheer as you enjoy the warm, seasonal atmosphere.
Find the Downtown Holiday Market along the sidewalks on F Street, between Seventh and Ninth streets through Dec. 23. You’ll be right in the heart of downtown for dining and museum visits before or after your shopping. Vendors open daily at noon, and close at 8 p.m.
