The Eastern Market is in a lovely section of Capitol Hill and quite accessible by Metro. A Saturday bonus is that there are stalls outside for porduce and crafts. There is a large room which focuses on foods to take home for cooking--not so vast as Reading Terminal Market or Ferry Market (and, in truth, both of those are better.) But the one place serving food is a treat. We went for the fabled Saturday a.m. breakfast and like the other reviewers found the line long. It moved swiftly,hwoever. There is ample seating int he adjacent room. We also had the blue bucks - yummy- free warm syrup availalbe. and the cheese grits with green chilis are amazingly creamy-not enough kick for anyone from New Mexico. There are 5 rule sposted--nothing compared tot hose Shopsin's used to post in NY. Prices gentle.
