The Petworth Community Market (PCM) will hold a fundraiser to support the hiring of a market manager for the 2011 season and efforts to expand market accessibility to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly Food Stamps) recipients through the purchase of an Electronic Benefits Machine (EBT) and creation of a benefits matching fund program. The fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, May 11, 2011 from 6:30-8:30pm at Domku Bar & Café at 821 Upshur St. NW. The fundraiser will feature a silent auction, raffle, drink specials, photo portrait booth, and DJ. Suggested entry donation is $10. To purchase tickets or to make a general donation to the cause, please visit: here.

Located along the 4100 block of Ninth Street, NW, at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Upshur Street, PCM will open for its second season on May 20, 2011, and will run every Friday from 4 PM to 8 PM through September 30, 2011.

PCM is still recruiting farm vendors, artists and crafters for the weekly markets. For additional details or to download a vendor application, visit

  • It’s a great event but I would just like to point out to whomever designed this poster that carrots are root vegetables, so the taproot would not be likely to stick out out the ground like a tree trunk.

  • What if this captures that moment when the carrots are being pulled from the soil? Cmon, use your imagination, live a little 🙂 and of course support the market, it rocks.

  • Anonymous. Thank you. I was aware when designing that this is in fact a root vegetable. However, I made an artistic decision (a good one I might add) to use the carrot in an imaginative way. Some of the best art out there doesn’t necessarily ‘make sense.’ It doesn’t have to in a literal sense, it simply has to convey an emotion and a feeling for the Petworth Market, which it does 🙂
