Q: Where in the city can you find oysters, cheese, pickles, gelato and coffee? (Not all to be eaten in one sitting, let's hope.) A: The much-anticipated Union Market, which opens Saturday and will be open year-round with more than 40 local vendors. To celebrate, the market will host an artisan ice cream competition (and tasting) from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday where the area's best ice cream/gelato/custard/yogurt makers vie for the 2012 DC Scoop title. The market opens Saturday at 11 a.m.
