Georgetown’s signature 8th annual open-air French Market returns to the Book Hill neighborhood this spring with superb shopping at almost 40 local merchants, delicious French cuisine and exciting entertainment along the neighborhood’s quaint cobblestone streets, bringing a bit of Paris to DC.
This unique European-like market will feature two days of incredible deals on the latest trends, the scents of fresh bread and coffee, and the sounds of charming accordion music. Shoppers can score savings of up to 90 percent off designer goods and art and antique home furnishings at almost 40 participating boutiques, antique shops, restaurants and galleries.
The streets will come alive with strolling musicians and mimes, while families can enjoy children’s activities including a caricature artist, balloon sculptor and more with Dumbarton House and Tudor Place. Completing the European experience, several of Georgetown ’s best restaurants and cafés will serve authentic French fare street-side including crepes, grilled merguez sausages, fresh breads, cheeses and more.
In addition to the neighborhood festivities, the Georgetown House Tour will take place on Saturday, April 30.
