This spring, Union Market (1309 5th St. NE, DC) will get in the pink spirit to honor DC’s most prized floral tradition, the National Cherry Blossom Festival. From Friday, March 20 through Sunday, April 12, 2015, the vibrant district in Northeast DC will offer a handful of blossom-inspired perks, including free rosé tastings, unique dinnerware discounts and a deliciously sweet Sakura Black tea blend commemorating the festival’s Japanese origins. These shops will offer specials to correspond with the Tidal Basin’s three-week long treat.
