With La Cosecha, Washington DC will soon have its first contemporary Latin market. A new 20,000-square foot market will head to the Union Market District in June. The market will offer culinary and retail options, a well as entertainment and community space. It is being described as a “central gathering place celebrating Latin American arts, culture, and heritage.”

Shopping center Edens is behind La Cosecha, which will make its debut with 14 partners, including White Envelope Arepa + Ceviche Bar, Peruvian Brothers, plant-based Bolivian restaurant Ali Pacha, and Latin American wine shop Grand Cata.

“We are excited to open the doors of La Cosecha this summer, establishing an international stage for the beautiful, rich cultures of Latin America,” said Jodie W. McLean, Edens CEO. “We’ve been inspired by the support and enthusiasm of both the Latin American embassies and the wider Latin American community who have been instrumental and instructional in guiding our attempt at bringing forth an authentic, sophisticated representation of the rich heritages, cultures and experiences of their home countries. We look forward to inviting everyone to La Cosecha in June and know that, much like us, you’ll be inspired.”
