The Shopping Experience

Setting the Stage for Inclusive Prosperity

Union Market District is defined by people, passion and possibility. An urban village borne from the diversity of the dreams and energy of the nation’s capital, it serves as a true melting pot of old world heritage and new world opportunities.

From its roots as Centre Market, a fresh food venue established more than 200 years ago, Union Market has been a great unifier for DC. An authentic district that expands beyond its culinary origins to include an events space at Dock5, local and national retail, and hotel and residential use— creating a welcoming space that inspires engagement and conversation.

The Market at Union Market District is a host to more than 40 local artisans, as well as an energizing incubator space for aspiring entrepreneurs. It has become a living laboratory where creativity is inspired and ideas can launch into scalable businesses.  

As one of the most vibrant, diverse and thriving neighborhoods, Union Market District continues to develop as a place for creative minds and businesses to connect.

  • The Market proper features 40 local, regional and international vendors, including DC Empanadas, TaKorean, Rappahannock River Oysters, Lyon Bakery, Red Apron Butcher, Trickling Springs Creamery, Righteous Cheese and Buffalo & Bergen soda shop
  • Located approximately 1 mile from U.S. Capitol and a few blocks from New York Ave./Florida Ave. Gallaudet Metro Station
