Our Outdoor Vendors

Each Saturday and Sunday, hundreds of DC’s best local artists and crafters set up tents in the street and plazas surrounding the market. Eastern Market’s arts and craft vendors are made up of painters, sculptors, independent designers, woodworkers, jewelers, potters, and photographers! The weekend market is open each Saturday and Sunday from 9am-3pm.

Below is the directory of our outdoor vendors:

Adiante Franszoon Custom Wood Carving & Furniture

Adiante Franszoon’s goal is to incorporate the Saramacca Maroon style of wood carving into the contemporary style of western furniture making. When clients speak of his work, they can explain how each object was crafted because of the close collaboration with Adiante in the decision making process… creating the design, selecting the wood, and considering the form and function of each object. Only the finest woods such as walnut, teak, mahogany, and tropical cedar are used because of their strength and beauty. Each object becomes as unique to the desires of the individual. Commissions are welcomed!

“If we had anything so hackneyed as a mission statement at Archelaus, it would probably revolve around the idea of keeping ourselves well amused by producing smart, sophisticated, pleasantly peculiar cards that will delight our many fine customers.

But since we don’t have anything like that, the less said about the matter, the better, really.”

For years I have created my own line of artistically created aromatherapy soaps, fragrant candles adorned with herbs and flowers, fizzy bath bombs, luxurious mineral bath salts, massage oils and more, featuring my uniquely DC line of Capitol Cherry Blossom products, perfect gifts from DC! I also feature a large array of headbands and hair accessories for young and old alike and hand select an eclectic assortment of fun, funky fashion jewelry at affordable prices. Holidays are my specialties, so come on by and join in the excitement, positive vibes and healing!”

Avner Ofer Photography

Traveling to many remote and off the beaten path locations, I attempt to capture intimate moments, and glimpses into other cultures. Studying the languages, customs, and geography of the places I visit enables me to explore deeper into that culture, and try to revel some of the essence of the place. Using this philosophy allows me to photograph any location from exotic Tibet to my back yard in Washington D.C. with the same insight and view.

. . .

I was fortunate to intern at National Geographic back in 2000, which was an amazing experience. That is what brought me to DC, and I am still here. I travel every year for 2-3 months, during the winter, and sell the rest of the year at markets and festivals around the area. The reward of sharing parts of the world, and my vision of it, with other people, is beyond words. When my images receive both an emotional and intellectual response, I feel I have done my job.

Barbara Chowney, Potter

My work consists of oxidation-fired functional and decorative pottery. I am interested in both form and surface decoration and try to achieve, in a painterly way, a spontaneous decoration which harmonizes with the form. My pottery is food- safe, dishwasher-safe and microwave-safe.
