Savor the diversity and possibility of the historic Union Market district. Here, a wide variety of ethnic and socio-economic groups converge in the spirit of creativity, entrepreneurship, and love of food. Union Market is quickly returning to its roots as a powerful economic engine and culinary destination, and in the process transforming the flourishing, creative urban fabric of D.C. The newly revamped Union Market features a year-round indoor market of local artisans and vendors as varied as local farmers, bakers, old-school meat butchers, a cheese monger, and a mixologist. In a short span of time, Union Market has become the culinary epicenter of the District hosting famous chef-stars and foodies from around the country. The Union Market building was restored by EDENS and is sited within the larger 44-acre Florida Avenue Market, which historically has been the District’s center for industrial wholesale and specialized retail food distribution. The co-existence and mutual reinforcement of the two markets is emblematic of the District’s vision to transform the market and the larger industrial areas around it into a 21st century hub for food production and sale, and for the burgeoning creative economy, tech startups and local businesses—all set within a vibrant mix of uses including retail, restaurants, hotel, residential and entertainment. Located at the strategic intersection of two main city thoroughfares—New York and Florida Avenues—served by a Metrorail station, and set between Gallaudet University, NoMa and H Street NE, the Market offers easy access to local residents and regional consumers. Connected, historic, and newly vibrant, Union Market is a catalyst for the creative economy blossoming in D.C.
