Picture 7, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

“This particular picture captures the essence of this summer in Bloomingdale, right out in front of the fantastic Big Bear Cafe. The Bloomingdale Farmers market brought together people from all reaches of the neighborhood to listen to live outdoor music, shop for organic food, and to hang out at the Cafe. The confluence of the events that occurred last summer created a rare atmosphere where people legitimately enjoyed the fruits of new enterprises, ideas and community energy.”

    i’ve heard great things about this farmer’s marked. The Big Bear Cafe is great…even though i live far from it in Petworth I made sure to stop by several times recently to check it out. The combination of the farmer’s market to new businesses is just the type of neighborhood-friendly development we need more of.

    Big Bear Cafe is at the corner of 1st St NW and R St NW, between Shaw and North Capitol St. Check out their website for more info http://bigbearcafe-dc.com

  • it’s great to be educating you all on other parts of the city. i hope that someday everyone knows the city’s neighborhoods well.

    bloomingdale is between 2nd NW and north capitol, from florida ave. north to the mcmillian reservoir.

    I love that picture- It looks so warm, sunny and happy.

    I can’t wait until t-shirt weather :) (and when it arrives, I’m sure I’ll miss winter)
