From Too Many Chefs -

Eastern Market, Washington DC 2/29/04

Apples at Washington D.C.'s Eastern MarketThe Eastern Market in Washington, D.C. is the last traditional market in the city where people come together to sell all sorts of things, from old campaign buttons, to flowers, to art, to furniture. Of course the aspect of the market that most interest the Too Many Chefs is the food market. Outside the old South Hall you can find produce vendors, selling fruit, fungus and more. Inside is where the butchers join the fruit and vegetable sellers. The place is bustling and smells great.

On Saturday, February 28th, 2004, I was able to visit the market with friends. Here are the best of the photos I took. It all starts with bacon -

I love Eastern Market and used to go there quite often when I lived in D.C. Inside they have a great sandwich place and some wonderful dessert spots, plus a cheese stand that reminds me of the ones here in Italy.

Nice pictures!

Thanks so much. I hope to do more "field trips" in the future, and will post the pics here.
