America's Best Christmas Markets: Downtown Holiday Market

Kevin Koski/ Downtown DC BID

Downtown Holiday Market, Washington, D.C.

From ice cream made with liquid nitrogen to piping-hot donuts, this annual market goes beyond European food traditions, taking the kind of worldly approach you’d expect in D.C. Located on F Street in front of the Smithsonian American Art Museum and National Portrait Gallery, this festive market counts more than 150 artists and crafters selling handmade goods like pottery, paintings, photo prints, and textiles. downtownholidaymarket.com

What to Try: Spice up your Christmas outing with a savory Peruvian-style empanada from Alexa’s, and finish it off with hot cinnamon-dusted, cream-filled churros.
