Some lovey craft items here, and with sensible prices. Nice to wander about, relaxed, and no pressure selling. more »
Go here!! It's adorable, busy for sure, but very cute. There's tons of shops in the area, including a flea market type street.You can spend as little or as long here as you'd like. There's even an aisle with more craft fair type goods too. It does get busy, all the metro signs about walking from other stations are on point.
Expect to pay more for your flowers than any other market. The prices here are high and I felt ripped off. Perhaps it's good for large companies buying 100+ hydrangeas if your not I'd stick to Columbia Rd!
