Welcome to Eastern Market, Washington DC’s original and premier food & arts market!

We look forward to seeing you this weekend! Farmers’ Market hours are from 9am-1pm.

(and remember that the indoor market is 9:00am – 5:00pm Tuesday – Sunday!)



On April 8, 2020, Mayor Muriel Bowser issued Mayoral Order 2020-058. The order
stipulates new requirements for Farmers’ Markets to operate during a Public Health
Emergency. The order incorporates findings related to coronavirus (COVID-19) and
its spread. The order also requires implementation of social distancing protocols for
indoor retail food sellers.

Eastern Market indoor merchants will have new hours of 9:00 a.m. – 5:00
p.m., Tuesday-Sunday, and closed on Monday. Eastern Market will be closed April 16 (DC Emancipation Day), and on all other DC Government holidays.

The Department of General Services (DGS) has obtained a waiver to re-open the
Eastern Market Farmer’s Market during the following hours:

  • Tuesdays: 12:00pm to 4:00pm
  • Saturdays and Sundays: 9:00am to 1:00pm

Several of our farmers accept pre-orders:

  • Dunham’s Farms accepts orders for the Saturday market from Tuesday to Thursday at 8:00pm. Please pre-order here.
  • For Ravenhook Bakehouse, go to their website and click the pre-order button.

In addition, Eastern Market indoor merchants will now operate with new hours
during the public health emergency: Tuesday – Sunday: 9:00am to 5:00pm

To ensure everyone’s safety, customers will be required to follow social distancing

As a reminder, the DC Government is urging residents to stay home unless you

  • Essential healthcare
