Maker's Market & Spring Festival on Wisconsin Avenue

he Friendship Heights Makers Market is returning this summer, bringing together two dozen creative vendors, prepared foods and neighborhood small businesses. Mark your calendars for May 20 to knock out your summer gift shopping while supporting local artisans and makers. Come early for giveaways for kids, and don’t miss the dance lessons and interactive fun. Stop by and shop from your favorite woman-owned local vendors, or stay the entire afternoon and hang out.
