Let’s Do Lunch

April 10, 2013

No one does lunch quite like our publisher, Sonya Bernhardt. With years on D.C.’s restaurant scene under her belt, she is quick with any recommendation for a hungry foodie. Our new column, “Let’s Do Lunch” takes us to new venues for tastes and culinary experiences. For our first installment, oUur office went to Union Market in Northeast Washington, D.C.

Union Market is the newest space for an authentic marketplace experience in the nation’s capital. Featuring over 40 different venders, the market is sure to have some- thing for everyone.

Drawing from the market’s history, dating back to 1931, development firm EDENS renovated the market and reopened it in September 2012.

Shoppers can choose from many different organic and artisan wares, from fresh pickles to handsoap, which our publisher’s husband, Wally, proudly endorses. Not married yet? We think Union Market would be a fun place to go on a date. You can choose from flowers, chocolate, or many dessert choices to treat your special someone.

Eaters can please their palates with a variety of cuisines, including quality treats at D.C Mediterranean Corner and eco-conscious oys- ters from Rappahannock Oyster Co. In addition, many of D.C.’s food truck favorites are offering their food indoors, like D.C. Empanadas, Curbside Cupcakes and TaKorean.

The operative word of Union Market’s offerings is “fresh.” If you like everything fresh, including your milk, this is the place to be.
Located at 1309 5th Street, NE, near Florida Avenue, the market is open Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visit UnionMarketDC.com for more information.?
