To be honest, Union Market is a bit out of the way as it’s probably eight or nine stops (but all on the red line - we <3 no transfers) but it is totally worth it. With just a short walk when you get off at the NoMa station you already pass an REI with a La Colombe for all your coffee and hiker fans out here (I’m guessing those exists somewhere?)  Just a few blocks farther and you pass the infamous Gallaudet University, a university for the education of the deaf and hard of hearing. Shortly after that, you are walking past a remote Politics and Prose, St. Anselm–a bougie steakhouse–and just a block down, there is a GIANT Trader Joe’s (!!!) Nonetheless, it was freezing, so my friends and I ran into Union Market, the real sight to see out here and we were a bit overwhelmed (in a good way) by all the shops that were offered. There was a rustic homegoods store, an Asian bodega, and sooo much food! My friends and I split up but then rejoiced together each with a different dish at the community table in the back - one had a savory crepe and the rest of us had falafel, each from different market stops, all better than the next. We topped off our lunch with a vanilla bean creme brulee donut that was caramelized in front of you, and coffee from a café that only employed students from Gallaudet University. It was a bit pricey, but definitely a trip to be made, and when it’s nice out, they have a bunch of outdoor activities worth checking out!
