Holidays in Washington: Alliance Française to present French-style Christmas market


The Alliance Française de Washington DC will present “Marché de Noël à la Française,” a French-style Christmas market, on Saturday to celebrate the holidays and local artisans.

Vendors at the market will speak both French and English and will include businesses such as Mediterranean Way Gourmet Shop, Mindy Lam Jewelry, Bonjour Mama and others, according to a release from the organizers.

Funds from the Dec. 2 market will go toward the artisans themselves, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the cultural programs for the Alliance Française. The group provides French language classes and hosts more than 80 cultural events each year.

The event will last from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 2142 Wyoming Ave. NW. Event organizers recommend that participants register for the event at, but tickets are free.
