Small Businesses to Shop near H-Street

by Nov 10, 2020

Living on H-Street makes it easy to shop small

As the holiday season approaches, residents of Avec on H Apartments have a special opportunity to support local DC businesses. As a community, we want to echo the national effort and encourage our residents to shop small in these still uncertain times. Fortunately, living on H Street puts you blocks away from some great local grocery stores. These local stores offer delicious produce, poultry, and other food items needed for a tasty holiday season. 

Why should you shop small?

When you shop small this holiday season, you’re putting your dollars right back into the community you live in. You’re also helping to ensure that some of your favorite local businesses can keep their doors open for a long time. 

How do I help encourage others to shop small?

The best way to spread awareness about shopping small is simply telling others about the experience you had shopping small. Positive customer reviews are the best way to encourage others to follow in your footsteps!

Below is a list of local businesses near H Street that you should keep in mind as you begin collecting food supplies for the ladder part of the year. 

 

Fresh Farm Market

Located in a fast-changing and dynamic DC neighborhood, the FRESHFARM H Street NE Market has become a quintessential community gathering spot where friends and neighbors meet to shop and socialize. We welcome market visitors with chairs and tables to come for the produce and stay for the vibe! This market offers a bit of everything, including conventional and certified organic fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meats, pastured eggs, sweet and savory baked goods, locally roasted coffee, fermented pickles and krauts, sandwiches and flatbreads, fresh flowers, plants, and more.

Almaala Farms @ Union Market

The freshest local produce can be found at Almaala farms. Tomatoes, peaches, okra, grapes, and more are harvested on Abedalelah Almaala’s Eastern Shore farms. The business has been a vibrant part of Union Market since 1996.
