You can even get a Christmas tree at Union Market this year!

You can even get a Christmas tree at Union Market this year!

Union Market is not exactly on the Hill but it’s too great of a place to not include in our gift guide. Aside from the many food options in the market, you can get gifts for just about everyone on your list. Cheese, meat, spices and more – the regular and temporary pop up stands offer a ton of unique gifts.

Stop by Righteous Cheese for cutting boards, cheese-making kits, wine glasses and more. Their gift display will give you plenty of ideas while you munch on samples and maybe even enjoy a glass of wine while you shop.


Salt & Sundry

Salt & Sundry, which recently opened a second location in Logan Circle, has everything from serving dishes to cocktail mixers…and more in between: cards; artsy temporary tattoos; cook books; decorating books; baby clothes; table runners; dish towels; and much much more.


DC Sharp

Does the cook in your life need a new chef’s knife, or to have their set sharped? DCSharp has you covered. These guys are knowledgable and very passionate about their knives. They will happily give advice or just give your blades a fresh new cut.

Bazaar Spices

Bazaar Spices

You should walk through the Bazaar Spices stand just to enjoy the smell. Once the aroma has you, admire their beautiful containers, dishes and selection as you think of how many people would love some of these goods under the tree.



Speaking of wonderful smells, Teaism has a pop-up shop at Union Market right now where you can buy tea pots, mugs and, of course, tea.


Mess Hall

At the Mess Hall pop-up, you can get wonderful local goods made in one of DC’s culinary incubators. Fruit Cycle, Goldilocks Goodies, Buttercream Bakeshop and more will give you plenty of tasty gift options.


Co Co. Sala

Do you have a chocolate lover on your list? Co Co. Sala, which has a restaurant location downtown, has a shop at Union Market where you can buy their beautiful and tasty chocolates. There is a huge selection of flavors that cannot be missed.


Red Apron

For the meat lover on your list, Red Apron Butchery has a “12 Days of Bacon” basket that made my mouth water. Match that with the brunch basket and the grilling basket and you’ll be eating well for months!


Ah Love Oil & Vinegar

Ah Love Oil & Vinegar is a great spot to pick up dishes, cutting boards, towels, gorgeous pasta, olive oils, jams, sauces and more.

Cordial Fine Wine & Spirits

Cordial Fine Wine & Spirits


Don’t forget the wine and cocktails! Cordial Fine Wine & Spirits has a great selection of wine and liquor, including many from local distillers.

I’m feel like I am only barely scratching the surface on all of the options at Union Market. So pack up your appetite and head over for a snack and shopping trip to see for yourself how many great gifts you can find.
