Georgetown French Market April 25-26

March 20, 2014

One of the most anticipated shopping weekends arrives each April when Georgetown's Book Hill neighborhood celebrates the season with the annual Georgetown French Market.

The Book Hill merchants, restaurants, salons and galleries display their wares in an inviting open air market, evoking the outdoor markets of Paris where guests wander between shops and galleries tempted by the aroma of fresh coffee and croissants while enjoying the sounds of strolling musicians.

The 11th Annual Georgetown French Market will be held on Friday, April 25 and on Saturday, April 26, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
