La Cosecha and Union Market in Washington, DC

Last September, we were lucky to be part of La Cosecha’s inauguration party in Washington, DC. La Cosecha, or The Harvest is a contemporary marketplace that highlights and celebrates Latin American heritage. From food to clothing to home decor, this trendy and dynamic shopping community truly has something for everyone. The mission of the project has a philanthropic approach to foster business education throughout the Latin American community and to curate partnerships with embassies, eclectic tastemakers and artisan contributors. 

“The harvest, la cosecha, is the natural time of reaping what has been cultivated by a vibrant community.”

Located right next to foodie’s paradise Union Market and beside other trendy, conscious concept shops and restaurants, La Cosecha is in an ideal location for a fun Saturday or Sunday afternoon. The opening party was a huge success, hundreds of people passed by to try some Peruvian Food (shout out to Peruvian Brothers!), listen to fun live latin beats and shop really cool slow fashion design. 

It’s fun to see how so many of these “dodgy warehouse” neighborhoods in big cities around the US are now becoming areas for artsy and innovative small-businesses to call home. We just had to meet some of the store owners in the neighborhood and leave some Andeana Hats with them.


  1. Shelter: Shelter is a concept store by DC jewelry designer Mallory Shelter, featuring a curated selection of jewelry, accessories and natural objects by independent designers. Shelter focuses on female designers and women-owned businesses which is a plus! We currently have a few Andeana Hats in store. They are located in DC's Union Market District, right off of Florida Avenue Northeast and close to the Noma/Galludet metro station. 1258 5th Street NE Washington, DC 20002

  2. Salt & Sundry: We met Salt & Sundry why we were popped up in Union Market. We currently don’t have any hats in stock with them, but we’re looking forward to our next pop up together! Salt & Sundry is a home and lifestyle boutique featuring an eclectic mix of goods from independent makers and designers, both local and from across the globe. Founder Amanda McClements opened Salt & Sundry’s Union Market location in 2012 to share her passion for quality goods and entertaining. Since then, Salt & Sundry has grown with a second location in Logan Circle and a little sister shop, Little Leaf, offering plants, paper goods and gifts. UNION MARKET 1309 5th St. NE, Washington, DC 20002.

La Cosecha wasn’t completely open while we were in town, so our Andeana Hats pop-up was actually held at Union Market and we had the best time there. Since the market already has a lot of foot traffic, we were able to meet so many of you! The best part about doing these in-person pop-ups is to spend time talking to you and sharing our story. It’s also safe to say that we were completely spoiled with our breakfast and lunches being around so many tasty food vendors. I think we spent the most time at Buffalo & Bergen getting a different breakfast bagel sandwich every day and happy hour drinks once we closed up shop. 

Where to Eat

  1. St. Anselm: The soul of St. Anselm, by restaurateurs Joe Carroll and Stephen Starr, is its simply prepared and expertly grilled ingredients, paired with esoteric wines in a quirky laid-back vibe. St. Anselm showcases unconventional butcher cuts {New York Magazine named St. Anselm Brooklyn’s the “Best Steak in New York”}, and specialties from the grill, such as clams with chartreuse butter, whole fish, and beautiful produce.

  2. Buffalo & Bergen - Union Market : Inspired by the classic soda shops of yesteryear, they bring you a new spin on the old classics: egg creams, sodas, & cocktails. We highly recommend all of their bagel sandwiches. Located in Union Market.

  3. Peruvian Brothers - La Cosecha: The Peruvian Brothers, Giuseppe and Mario Lanzone, serve authentic “Comida Criolla”, the tastiest part of their Peruvian heritage rooted in Andean, Spanish, African and Asian influences. The flavors that dominated their childhood in Lima are the tastes they craved most after moving to the United States.
