Travel Here: National Geographic's Third Tuesday Courtyard Market

 

 

If you're visiting the metro Washington DC area (aka the #DMV), it's worth a half-day trip to the National Geographic Museum, museum shop, and especially the outdoor Courtyard Market. The Courtyard Market is held every third Tuesday, 11am-2pm, from April through October. NatGeo is located at 1600 M St NW in Washington, D.C.

 

 

While you may find different artists in the Courtyard each month, one mainstay is the Orchard Country Farm Stand. Orchard Country is open every Tuesday from 8:30am-2:30pm.

 

 

Marcelle Fozard brings her awesome Design Your Own Succulent Bar!

 

 

A lovely finished product!

 

 

Liz Hutcheson of Fast Snail Creative Greetings & Design features lovely DC-themed art prints, flasks, tea towels, greeting cards, and more great gifts.

 

 

Anjali Sunderam of Sovereign Treasures creates beautiful henna-inspired designs, and summery trivets.

 

 

 

 

 There are even more artists and designers to visit!

 

Yinibini Baby...

 

 

Kuzeh Pottery...

 

 

... and more!

Sometimes food trucks show up, too.

Westray's Finest Ice Cream...

NatGeo also has a pretty tasty cafeteria.

 

You can visit the next Courtyard Market on Tuesday, August 16th. Have fun!
