Eastern Market Unveils Holiday Wish Trees in Historic North Hall

(Washington, DC) - Eastern Market announces the unveiling of the Holiday Wish Trees in the North Hall. Through January 10, 2010, Eastern Market encourages visitors to bring nonperishable food items to the North Hall. Canned foods may be placed underneath any one of three Fraser Firs on display. On January 11, all food collected from the Holiday Wish Trees will go to the DC Central Kitchen to help feed Washingtonians in need this winter.

While stopping by the North Hall, visitors are also invited to decorate the Holiday Wish Trees by placing hand written notes on the fir trees. Visitors may share a personal wish for the New Year or add a message to a loved one. Paper and pens will be provided next to the display.

Eastern Market is Washington DC’s oldest and continually operated fresh food public market. Located in the heart of the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood, Eastern Market is DC’s destination for fresh food, hand-made arts and crafts, and community events. For over 136 years, Eastern Market has served as a community hub, connecting neighbors, families and visitors.
