WASHINGTON -- We've highlighted musical performances at the Downtown Holiday Market, but there's more to the market than music -- there's the actual market, too.

This year's Downtown Holiday Market features everything you'd expect from outdoor urban bazaar. Knit scarves, paintings, photographs and jewelry make up a good percentage of goods sold, but there's more. There are enough options to shop for all aspects of your holiday gift list.

Click through the slideshow to see some of our favorite vendors and items at this year's market.
