Eastern Market, Capitol Hill, Washington, DC

Eastern Market is an anchor of the Capitol Hill neighborhood, and after suffering a devastating fire a couple of years ago, the mayor was out front the next day promising to rebuild.To be honest, I bought a lot of fruit that looked good the day I bought it there, and the next day it would be rotten. And while it's a traditional market so desired by urbanists, much of the produce was trucked in from other countries.The new Eastern Market is nice and clean, and overpriced. I am sure residents of Capitol Hill still either love or hate their local institution.Here is the interior, completely restored to its previous appearance, with a lot of the grime gone.
