Donate and Become a Friend Today

Your donation makes Eastern Market the most dynamic and diverse public market in the country! Your support of our work helps us support those in our community who have limited access to fresh food. Becoming a Friend of Eastern Market helps ensure these programs continue to thrive while supporting our programs and initiatives and our mission. Also, you are eligible for many great perks including our special cooking classes!
