Off to shop - the market has everything - jewelry, furniture, antique linens, vintage maps, pottery, original art, and on and on. The Booda Boutique stall had these marvelous beaded ikat clutches - love! These (and the clutch and bracelets below) are also available online.
Elsewhere in the market, piles of straw bags and baskets...
Typeset, so you can create your own custom artwork.
Many DC-area artists and photographers have their own booths.
The Antiochia stall sells traditional Turkish bath towels (imported), and they're marvelous. I have the hand towels, and I can attest that they're the real deal. When I shopped in the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul earlier this year, I found the same towels, and the prices at Antiochia were slightly better!
This delicate little carved bamboo piece was only $40. If only I had more unfilled corners in my apartment - if only.
Did I mention the produce? VA and MD farmers truck in everything from fresh flowers, fruits, and veggies, to their own home-made jams, cakes, and pies.
And handmade soaps!
A number of stalls also sell children's toys, like these traditional pull-alongs.
