    TaKorean and DC Dosa are solid. For sure grab a sweet nibble from CoCo Sala and a container of chickpea chorizo salad from the charcuterie/sandwich spot in the back left corner of the market.

    I love me some Union Market. It's around the block from my house which is uberly convenient. I love the ice cream shop. The best ice cream around. The Korean Taco shop is awesome as well.

    Union Market is a diamond in the rough in Northeast DC. A variety of artisan food and craft vendors, my favorite being Takorean, serving Korean-style tacos. A great place to spend an afternoon.

    Go hungry! So much great food and drink to try in this place! Plus there is lots of parking, so don't be scared away by what appears to be big crowds on the surrounding streets.

    It's far from central DC, but has ample free parking. There isn't a ton of seating if you visit one of the smaller stalls versus one of the bigger "restaurants". Great place to hang out and chill.

    Empanadas, arepas, dosa, ice cream, Korean tacos -- thats just what I was able to try. Wonderful farm to table recipes and a great location for either a date or to bring your friends. 💛💛💛

    Union Market, a year-round communal market, provides fresh produce, freshly squeeze juices and smoothies, and freshly prepared cultural delights to locals and tourists in the Washington DC area.

    Always tons of events going on. Any food here is awesome and delicious. Great place to just walk around but it can get packed when it's nice out.

    Amazing selection of food! Try the bbq stand (brisket + sweet potatoes) and the smoked fish counter (whitefish salad with Asian pears)!

    Everything was delicious. Ate at the locally grown and sustained Bidwell Restaurant (select veggies grown on the roof) and bought some items from a black owned raw vegan vendor, Goshen

    This patio has all the makings of perfection. If you buy libations from Suburbia, you can sit at their designated tables. Otherwise, help yourself to the unreserved tables in the common area. Read more

    The smoked hummus at Neopol is maddeningly good and completely genius. Also keep an eye out for smoked olives and some fantastic varieties of smoked fish. This is happy food.

    It's hard to go wrong with any of the constantly changing options here. DC Empanadas, Red Apron, Mason Dixie, Maketto, and the BBQ Joint are some of my favorites.

    HVig some delish oysters, white wine, and decidig what to follow up with. Some gravlox, more wine... you know, the "youjh". A good way to unwind after an awesome vip tour of the Capitol Building!

    Skip the Truckeroo line, there's no line to Takorean here! Also, walk around and sample from all the vendors. Don't sit down and tie yourself to one place for food.

    Lots of pricey artisan food and drinks. A few times a year they have clothing and furniture vendors in the back. Don't go expecting to find a deal!

    This place has finally grown up. Nearly every stall filled. Try the DC dosa, if you want a quick bite and don't want to queue.

    Had lunch at Bidwell; excellent food and service. Desperately needs more than 1 restroom to support the many, many patrons who visit the venue.
