I have a question I thought you might be able to help with. I bought a sweater last fall from a guy in the outdoor portion of Eastern Market who sold mostly vintage/dad-style sweaters and shirts. It ended up being my favorite sweater and I’d love to get another but I haven’t been able to find him since Read More

We are, however, excited to announce that we have found a way to keep the spirit of Acqua al 2 in the neighborhood though the Acqua al 2 Sauce Shop! Read More

Since I have found innumerable places through your site and comments section over the years, I felt I should give one back. There are a group of guys serving breakfast burritos, tacos, and quesadillas under the name “El Piquin” that have been coming to Eastern Market for about the last five years. They have a restaurant in Essex, MD, but they seem to have no presence whatsoever on yelp, social media, etc. outside of a few shout-outs from Eastern Market itself. They took a long hiatus due to COVID but are now back at it on Sundays and Tuesdays and are better than ever. I have been going religiously for years now because the food is really that good (the hot sauce is other-worldly), and I would really like them to survive. Great group of guys, so I wanted to get the word out, even if that means longer lines for me.”
