Make your way down the street from Union Place apartments in NoMa to Union Market, for culinary inspiration. The bustling warehouse is chock full of established vendors, pop-up concepts and the people that love and support them.
Since its inception, Union Market has been a showcase for local chefs and foodie entrepreneurs to display their craft, try new things and expose DC residents to new and exciting food trends. This purpose is still at the core of its offerings, with ever-changing “pop-ups” amongst the established and beloved purveyors. For artisanal charcuterie, salumi and more, Red Apron Butcher is one of the best places in town to procure sustainably raised meats. Add to that some freshly made pasta from Cucina Al Volo and you have an easy-to-make meal to impress any guest. The Market lineup ranges from Ethiopian to Indian, kombucha to croissants, empanadas to espresso, and the range almost always has something new because of the ever-changing pop-up shops.
Union Market provides constant change with a revolving assortment of pop-up concepts. From season to season, you don’t know what you’re going to get…doughnuts, matcha tea, ice cream, slushies, ramen and more. Depending on when you visit, you could be in for a life-changing new experience!
Union Market is primarily a stop for food, but there are always other shops that might pique your curiosity. From food-related items like those at District Cutlery, specializing in selling and servicing knives, to jewelry, books, home and lifestyle goods, Union Market is worth a trip to occasionally discover what you didn’t know you desperately needed in your life.
If you happen to have an event coming up that you are planning, Dock 5, the elegant upstairs rental space, is an excellent venue for all sorts of parties and get-togethers. With over 12,000 square feet of space, 22-foot-high ceilings and glass garage doors, this spot will thrill all comers and give a sophisticated and urban edge to any event.
Another of Union Market’s attractions, The Angelika Pop-Up is the DC arm of the film center’s signature mix of specialty film programming and unique events. With multiple screens that combine cutting edge technology with luxurious, stylish and comfortable surroundings, this cinematic offering fits perfectly in the eclectic and creative offerings in Union Market. The Angelika Pop-Up helps to fulfill the area’s need for diverse types of entertainment in the ever-growing NoMa neighborhood.
The best part is that all of this is just a short walk away from Union Place apartments, the perfect home to stay connected to your community.
