This weekend marks the second Emporiyum, a two-day, food-fueled marketplace that brings together more than 60 acclaimed artisans from around the United States.
To help you stay focused, we’ve put together a list of specific items to keep your eyes peeled for, most of which are making their D.C. debut. Try to spy with your little eyes:
- Crack Pie from Momofuku (New York City). The mix of butter, sugar and eggs is as addicting as the name implies, and probably just as bad for you.
- Baltimore-style pit beef from Woodberry Kitchen (Baltimore). Chef Spike Gjerde has mastered this nuanced style of barbecue.
- Tsukemen buns from East Side King (Austin, Texas). Lemongrass, pork, shrimp and ramen broth combine for a savory treat.
- Cocktail mixers from Bittermilk (Charleston, S.C.). Charred grapefruit tonic, anyone?
And don’t forget about local favorites like Astro Doughnuts, Toki Underground and Runningbyrd Tea Co.
The Maurice Electric Warehouse at Union Market, 500 Penn St. NE; Sat., 11 a.m.-4 p.m. & Sun., 11 a.m.-3 p.m., $20; theemporiyum.com.
