Downtown Holiday Market
This is the 12th year that Chinatown gets a little merrier and brighter with a sprawling holiday market. In addition to jewelry, art, soaps, candles and clothes, you’ll find treats like hot chocolate, doughnuts and empanadas to keep you warm while you search for something for your cousin who already has everything.
F Street between Seventh and Ninth streets NW; through Dec. 23, noon-8 p.m., free.
Heurich House Museum’s annual market is modeled on traditional German Christmas markets. This may be your best bet to find the perfect gift for a foodie, from vendors such as ‘Chups, Element Shrub, Catherine George Cakes and Langdon Wood Maple Syrup. You can also pick up jewelry, pottery, art and hand-dyed clothing.
Heurich House Museum, 1307 New Hampshire Ave. NW; Fri., 4-9 p.m., Sat. & Sun., 11 a.m.-5 p.m., $10-$15.
