Union Market now open five days a week

Rappahannock Oyster Co. has been doing bustling business inside Union Market, located at Sixth Street and Florida Ave. NE. ( Jahi Chikwendiu/The Washington Post)
Union Market, the new indoor marketplace for locally produced food and goods, is no longer a place to splurge on oysters and gelato on weekends only.

The Northeast Washington complex, which opened in September with Friday through Sunday hours, is adding Wednesday and Thursday to its schedule. The market’s new hours are Wednesday-Friday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The market’s permanent occupants include Rappahannock Oyster Co., Lyon Bakery and Peregrine Espresso. But many other planned tenants, including outposts for Red Apron Butchery and Gina Chersevani’s old-school soda shop Buffalo and Bergen, have yet to fully take root. Pop-ups have filled some of the gap, but the extension of hours is a good sign that there’s more coming. Through Sunday, in fact, Salt & Sundry’s Amanda McClements will host a holiday pop-up at the market; and Saturday, the longtime Adams Morgan indie craft bonanza Crafty Bastards occupies to the space.
