Need a Last-Minute Gift Near Flats 130? Shop the Downtown Holiday Market!

The Downtown Holiday Market is always a great place to find gifts and support local businesses, but this year, there’s an added perk. If you’re not comfortable going to a traditional mall or retail store right now, this outdoor shopping village provides the perfect alternative! Since it’s all done in the fresh air with social-distancing and a one-way flow of traffic, you’ll be able to feel totally comfortable getting into the holiday spirit and doing some spending.

Wear a face covering and come out to the Downtown Holiday Market before it closes on December 23rd. It’s open daily from 12 to 8 p.m. (with the exception of December 14th) along F Street NW from 7th to 9th Streets NW. To limit the crowd, you’ll have to check in at the only entrance in front of the National Portrait Gallery before you browse the many giftable goodies crafted by local artisans and small businesses. Grab some food and hot chocolate while you’re there and enjoy musical acts projected on the large Market Screen!
