Get Out! Go to AT LEAST one holiday market on Saturday, Dec 2!

 by Peggy Robin

Saturday is Market Day....Holiday or Winter Market, that is! Or should I say Markt??!

That would be the John Eaton Elementary School Winter Markt and Tree Sale. Here's your invite:

Please join us in celebrating the holiday season at our annual Christmas Tree Sale and Wintermarkt this Friday, Saturday and Sunday!
There will be a huge selection of frasers, firs, and spruces as well as tabletops, wreaths, garlands - and just in time, according to forecasts of heavy snow this season - an array of SLEDS! 
Our Wintermarkt will have an arts and crafts table for kids (make snow globes and ornaments), a raffle, used children's books, freshly popped popcorn, hot apple cider, hot chocolate, and new this year - a white elephant, bingo, and a table of gourmet treats from many of our local embassies!
Also, don't miss a special visit by firemen in a fire truck at 11AM on Saturday at the front of Eaton. 
We hope to see you there!
WHERE: Eaton Elementary playground
WHEN: Tree Sale: Friday, December 1st, 3:30-8 | Saturday and Sunday, December 2nd and 3rd, 9am - 5pm
***The Wintermarkt is only on Saturday, 10-2*** 

The Cleveland Park Main Street Winter Market puts the "e" back in Market....and you also get music!!!

Saturday December 2nd, 2:30-7:30pm in the 3400 block of Connecticut Avenue.
Shop local at the third annual Cleveland Park Winter Market.
Hear holiday tunes by saxophonist Nathaniel Gillian starting around 3pm.

For more information please visit: 
The Winter Market is brought to you by Cleveland Park Main Street and is part of Holiday Lights. 


At City Ridge they're calling it an URBNmarket. Not sure why they landed on that term with that funny spelling, but if you go, you'll get live music, PLUS a ride on a holiday train AND a tree lighting!

Hi everyone -

We are excited to announce the tree lighting and weekend market at City Ridge. We will have activities for all ages. Join in the fun with pictures with Santa, ride our holiday train around Ridge Square, enjoy live music and so much more on Dec. 2.

Get some holiday shopping done early too. There will be a URBNmarket pop up market from 3-8pm on Saturday and 11am - 4 pm Sunday on The Great Lawn.

The Tree lighting is at 7pm on Saturday Dec. 2nd.
