From Michel Richard’s Citronelle to the newish Café Bonaparte and all the wine stores, antique shops, and boutiques in between, Georgetown has always had a bit of a French flair. This Friday and Saturday, April 29 and 30, the neighborhood will celebrate this joie de vivre with the 8th Annual French Market.
An open-air market on Book Hill, an area along upper Wisconsin Avenue between P Street and Reservoir Road, will feature a selection of clothing, furnishings, and food from a number of Georgetown’s upscale shops and restaurants. Visitors can save up to 70% on pastries, paintings, and pampering for poodles from the likes of Patisserie Poupon, The French Apartment, and The Dog Shop, respectively. In addition to the vendors, the French Market will also provide entertainment, such as balloon sculpture artists, silhouette-making, and live music organized by the Alliance Francaise.
