Somehow controversial, the Cleveland Park farmers market is a go!!! [Ed. Note: Service lane, you’re next!!!]

The Cleveland Park Business Association shares the good news:

“We are very happy to announce the long-awaited launch of the Cleveland Park Farmers Market! Permit applications have been submitted and we anticipate opening on Saturday, June 3. The Farmers Market will operate outdoors every Saturday morning from 8:30 AM- 12:30 PM, in the heart of the Cleveland Park on the West Side Sidewalk of Connecticut Avenue between Newark Street and the Uptown Theater.

This year’s launch of the Farmers Market is in direct response to a survey conducted in the Community. We were delighted to learn from the survey that an overwhelming 88% of respondents supported the Farmers Market and 80% of respondents intend to shop at the neighborhood businesses when they came to the Farmers Market. “We are hoping that the Farmers Market will remind and encourage the community to shop at and support their local bricks and mortar businesses all week. ” says Susan Lihn, owner of Wake Up Little Suzie, and CPBA’s Board Co-Chair.

Hold on to your hats Cleveland Park, after some recent retail sadness, something to celebrate! From the owner of the Uptown Tap House (formerly 4Ps):

“We are working to keep the space active after being vacant for so long to bring something fresh and relevant for the neighborhood. We are talking with event space managers and a farmer’s market to go in after the People’s Movement vacates and in place until we break ground on the Uptown Market (which is a working name for now) which will be a high end market and food hall and are actively talking with established local restaurants and unique concepts from all over the US & abroad.

Stay tuned for many updates on both the Farmers Market and the future Uptown Market.


There had been rumors of a chicken prowling the streets of Cleveland Park but never before had she be caught on film. Thanks to a reader for sending from 36th and Macomb: “Backyard Chicken on the lam?”
