Eastern Market Main Street kicks off its Holly Days season on Saturday, November 24 — also known as Small Business Saturday.

On that day, over 30 of the businesses inside the Capitol Hill historic corridor will begin celebrating the holidays with promotions intended to foster local shopping and encourage investment in the local economy.

Eastern Market Main Street will be set up outside the Eastern Market Metro station on Nov. 24, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The first 200 shoppers to visit will receive a Small Business Saturday goody bag and free hot chocolate will be available throughout the event.

“We hope that by highlighting the variety and unique aspects of our own corridor, we will increase awareness of the importance of investing in your local economy and provide tangible support to our amazing businesses that extends beyond the holiday season,” said Madeleine Odendahl, executive director of EMMS.

The Holly Days is a 37-day extravaganza of events, festivities, restaurant specials and merchandise sales. Shops will be decorated with wreaths and garland, accenting the singular mix of the historic with the modern that makes the neighborhood uniquely distinctive.

The Holly Days celebration continues until December 31. If time is running out on your holiday shopping, get some ideas at the The Holly Days Last Minute Gift Guide.

Dear God was this good!!

From Manos de Maiz’s website:

“For us, corn is much more than just a commodity, for us it means family and tradition. At manos de maíz we source blue (conico) and white (bolita) heritage corn grown and harvested by Purepecha farmers. They have formed a network of 100 farmers whose families have worked the land for centuries and have passed their farming knowledge from one generation to another.

Taste tradition in a new way, try our maizope, a thick open faced tortilla made fresh by hand and served with our original recipes of seasonal toppings made with local ingredients. We have a rotating menu every week, please check our social media for updates.

BRISKET TINGA. Beef brisket, sweet chipotle, avocado, .
CHICKEN MOLE. Chicken breast, house almond mole, black beans, frisee.
BREAKFAST. Eggs, potato hash, green chili.
MUSHROOM. Wild mushrooms, charred poblano, crema.
CEVICHE. Tuna, lemon, habanero, corn, red onions.”


Their Facebook says:

“Making maizopes with Mexican heritage corn. Find us every Saturday at Mt Pleasant Farmers Market and Sunday at Eastern Market.

Ed. Note: I’m pretty sure I was at Eastern Market on a Saturday but I think they said they’ll be switching back to the regular Saturday in Mount Pleasant, Sunday in Eastern Market schedule soon. I plan on stalking them regularly so I’ll be sure to update.
