To market, to market

By Lavanya Ramanathan

If you think waiting in line for five hours at Walmart to buy an off-brand flat-screen TV (for yourself) is the very antithesis of a holiday tradition, you are not alone.

We have a list of best holiday markets and holiday-themed shopping events that allow you to cross lots off your shopping list without having to sacrifice the spirit of the season.

Beginning today with the annual Downtown Holiday Market and through the weekend in Georgetown and at the House of Sweden, you can buy from local artists, listen to live performances and warm up with hot cocoa (or, perhaps, the Swedish sipper glogg). And there's no need to wrestle someone over an iPad.
