Let some up this entire story for you: if you haven’t been to Union Market in Washington, D.C., you
This past weekend, my roommates and I took a trip into our nation’s capital with one goal in mind: to check out the artisan food market that I have heard so much about. We arrived with empty stomachs and uncertainty, and left with stuffed bellies and “when are we going back?” etched across our lips.
But this brings me to two other important points: what I wore and what I ate at Union Market.
My (awesome) lace-up top (though it’s not actually lace-up) is from Missguided and high-waisted shorts are from Urban Outfitters. The leopard-print slip-ons are from G.H. Bass & Co. As always, my bag is from Rebecca Minkoff.
As you can see, Union Market has an amazing mural on one side of it. It’s pretty out-of-the-way, meaning that not everyone knows of its existence (you’re welcome for letting you in on this secret).
And inside is chalk-full of artisan food vendors, each with their own, flavorful stand. I went for a pulled pork sandwich from The BBQ Joint, while my roommates went for an acai bowl from South Block Juice Co. and a dosa from DC Dosa (an Indian crepe, essentially).
Soon, I found myself in a post-pulled pork food coma and was in desperate need of a pick-me-up. That being said, I made a beeline to the Peregrine Espresso station, which happens to be a coffee company that has won numerous accolades and is considered to be one of the best in the DC area.
