Photos From Sunday Supper at Union Market
Edens, which owns multiple parcels in the Union Market/Florida Market/Capital City Market, held a massive family style dinner last night to launch their new Union Market. Union Market (the building is called Union Market, but Edens also uses the name to refer to the entire 24 acre market) is housed in the former DC Farmers Market. The DC Farmers Market was gutted after it suffered a fire last fall. Edens has renovated the building into a high end food market and dining space. It's quite different from its former incarnation, which was often viewed as down market.
I was able to attend last night's Sunday Supper, and the experience was nothing short of stunning. The four course meal was very impressive. Union Market is a much fancier space than the DC Farmers Market, and the vendors who have signed on to sell there match that appearance. I will write more about this in the future, but please enjoy this photo set in the mean time.
