The Art of Shopping
Washingtonians have another crafty alternative for holiday shopping again this year. The outdoor DC Holiday Market has opened for the season at corner of F Street NW and 7th Street in Penn Quarter. The open air market, open daily from 12 noon – 8:00pm through December 23, features an array of local and regional artisans and exhibitors selling high-quality clothing, jewelry, crafts, fine art and pottery. After you have finished shopping, slip inside the National Portrait Gallery and Smithsonian American Art Museum adjacent to the market.
