Where to Shop - Capital City Market

Capital City Market, Washington's wholesale and retail warehouse hub for fruits, vegetables, meat and poultry, is a time-worn commercial area with constantly moving trucks, forklifts and automobiles. Prices are low. The mix of cultures and diversity of food stuffs is aesthetically stimulating. Still, it might not be the best place to bring the kids. Included in the following list of wholesale and retail operations is a handful of carryout shops where workers as well as shoppers can grab a bite to eat. Many of the businesses are closed on Sunday. A flea market for new and used household items at Sixth Street and Neal Place NE, opposite the D.C. Farmers Market, is open on Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Several concessions sell hot food such as crab cakes with french fries and halal or kosher turkey sausage and half-smokes.
