  • I’m all for little markets but won’t this be two blocks from the already existing farmer’s market at 14 and U on Saturday’s? Doesn’t it seem redundant?

    • Well, not on Sunday. And not if they’re their later into the winter. But yeah, still pretty darn close.

  • Also, isn’t the Lancaster County farmer’s market place, Smucker Farms, going in just below 14th and W? Is this the same guy?

  • andy

    DC Vice Squad will be on hand to check out the rubs.

  • If they want to be “upscale” they need to learn how to use apostrophes. (“Weekends – Saturday’s & Sunday’s (10:00am to 4:00pm)Beginning August 20th, 2011”)


  • This is coming from the same market operator (Chef Kenac) that failed rather miserably with a 2+ month run at 5th & I Streets NW.

  • I’m glad there will be a farmers market on Sunday nearby! I live in Park View, and I find it disappointing that both the Columbia Heights and the Mount Pleasant markets happen on Saturdays, That doesn’t make sense to me.
