Founded in 2005, the DowntownDC Holiday Market is a program of the DowntownDC Business Improvement District and is produced in partnership with Diverse Markets Management (DMM). With more than 150 small and local businesses selling a diverse array of quality, handmade art and wares over 31 days, the Downtown Holiday Market (DHM) is a one-stop winter wonderland with eclectic gifts for everyone on your shopping list. 

The DHM is proud to commit to environmental sustainability, and as such is powered by generators running on bio-diesel fuel, and its publicity materials are printed on 100% post-consumer recycled materials. Many offer fair trade imports and gifts made from recycled and sustainable resources, and shoppers making purchases will receive recyclable DHM shopping bags.
