Eastern Market Main Street Market Week and the Small Business Administration's Small Business Week are going virtual in 2020! Follow us on social media as we celebrate small businesses and offer a daily virtual tour of the diverse businesses that make up our community. 



Third Thursdays, a monthly event series, connects people to place through engaging activities, classes, games, entertainment and more. Centered on C Street Plaza, between 7th and 8th Streets SE, EMMS will bring outdoor seating and live entertainment to the corridor each event, and partner with organizations to offer activities organized around themes of movement such as biking, dancing, playing, and walking.

A one-of-a-kind walking and beverage tasting tour, Constitutional(n) highlights the history and businesses that make this corridor so unique. Guests can taste themed libations from local restaurants and drinkeries, and experience history in a way designed to satisfy curiosity and quench thirst.




The Holly Days are an EMMS initiative to promote small, local businesses in the corridor during the holiday season. From weekend markets, Cyber Mondays and Small Business Saturday to festive lighting, Holiday-themed online concerts, Christmas tree sales and more, 'tis the season to #ShopSmall and #ShopLocal!
