Another good local excursion – Union Market

If you happen to plan a lovely late afternoon at the Arboretum but arrive at 4:50 only to discover that they lock the gates at 5 pm, you might well land up at Union Market.  It is a rather pretentious but also very pleasant “urban farmer’s market.”  The type of place where you can buy local milk, bread, flowers and vegetables, but also have a glass of wine at the Oyster Bar or enjoy vegetarian Korean barbecue.  It is also the highest concentration of toddlers in the city at around 5:00 pm on a weekend afternoon.   And while most people seem to love the bright, airy part of Union Market, we rather like the fact that it is in fact situated smack dab in the middle of the wholesale restaurant supply district for DC.  Rotting lettuce and all.  Goes well with a Little Lord Fauntleroy outfit.
