Starting yesterday, for 11 more days until December 22nd, on the sidewalk on F Street between 7th and 8th visit more than 40 local artisans offering diverse and hand-made gifts such as jewelry, pottery, paintings, and textiles, plus great live music, homemade snacks and festive accessories. Adjacent to the Smithsonian American Art Museum and National Portrait Gallery and across from the Verizon Center and Hotel Monaco, it's a creative and convenient way to fulfill all your holiday shopping needs right in the heart of Downtown.
For more information about the exhibitors, the entertainment schedule and ways to enter for daily prizes, please visit the Downtown Holiday Market website.

The hours are from noon to 7 pm each day.
This location is immeasurably better compared to last year's site on the temporary parking lot on the Old Convention Center.
It's one more attraction--layering--in the 7th Street NW corridor, which is become downtown's power corridor for retail, entertainment, and vitality.
