bloomingdale farmers market
1700 1st Street, NW

A reader reported Sunday:

“at the Bloomingdale farmers market this AM a car was parked in the market and was ticketed. When the owner came out she tried to drive out of the market (which would have run over stands and people) so the market director tried to block her. He also claimed she had an open container of alcohol with her. He blocked her, she hit him, people were yelling and cursing. I went over and reminded everyone that there were children present and to calm down especially the hitting. She eventually got in her car and backed out of the market going down the alley that was closed next to big bear. Honestly it was lucky no one was hurt. The cops came too Late but hopefully found her. Silver Mercedes with MD tags.”
