A lot has changed since we last wrote about Union Market three years ago. There are too many vendors to name in one blog (more than 30!), but some of the more popular choices have become Co Co. Sala (chocolatier), Cordial Fine Wine & Spirits, Rappahannock Oyster Company, Red Apron Butchery, and TaKorean (Mexican/Korean fusion). Dock5, located directly above the marketplace, also provides a 12,000 square foot warehouse event venue. There are always pop-up artisans in Union Market, but none have gathered as much attention as the planned Angelika Pop-Up. Opening later this year, it will be a three-screen micro cinema located behind the market at 550 Penn St. NE. Dolcezza, a gelato and coffee shop, is located next to the Angelika and has been receiving rave
August often brings a slight decline in sales activity in Washington, DC. It is a prime vacation month for area residents as they seek to escape the District for cooler climates, beaches, and mountains. Congress is also out of session which means thousands of DC residents have more leisure time to take these vacations.

The good news is that DC is steadily becoming a more pleasant and accessible place to live. The challenge for hopeful buyers is that prices aren’t where they used to be, even a year ago. The process of urban renewal in the nation's capital has become a self-fueling engine. As more people move back to the District, it inevitably leads to increased demand for local businesses and services. The demand encourages the revitalization of commercial corridors and supports a broader base of cultural, dining, and retail options. In a basic sense, more people equals a more vibrant and eclectic city. The city's build out of the Metro and bus systems along with the wild success of the Capital Bikeshare Program has created a more accessible and useful public
