There's no better way to spend a Saturday morning in D.C. than wandering through the stalls of Eastern Market on Capitol Hill. In operation since 1873, the market has long been a gathering place for locals looking for fresh produce, tasty pastries, and gourmet meats and cheeses. These days, purveyors of food and artisanal snacks (hand-twisted pretzels, locally made pickles) are joined by vendors and craftsmen selling vintage furniture, architectural salvage, art, and jewelry, as well as street musicians playing original folk and bluegrass music. The central brick building is where you'll find the queue for star tenant Market Lunch, a no-frills stand that cooks up the city's best pancakes (try the blueberry buckwheat) and perfect Maryland-style crab cakes for the hungry masses.—Colleen Clark

Indoor food stalls open Tuesdays through Fridays 7 am to 7 pm, Saturdays 7 am to 6 pm, and Sundays 9 am to 5 pm. Full market (indoor and outdoor vendors) open Saturdays 7 am to 6 pm, Sundays 9 am to 5 pm.
