Market Week Starts Sunday for Eastern Market Main Street!

Celebrate With Participating Local Shops, Restaurants and the Festival

Grab your neighbors—this weekend starts the first Eastern Market Main Street Market Week! Running from May 14 to 21, the market week will celebrate local Eastern Market businesses with a series of events all week, culminating in Night at the Market.
