Hipchickindc Visits Bloomingdale Farmer’s Market Festival Featuring Les Petits Chanteurs

Haitian Singers 09-14-08 021, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

The Bloomingdale Farmer’s Market is located at 1st and R Streets NW on Sundays from 10am to 2pm.

For the second year in a row, the Bloomingdale Farmer’s Market provided an awesome venue for Les Petits Chanteurs from Haiti. Usually my trips to the Sunday market are quick, but the singers and the accompanying pig roast provided good reason to hang around. This year, in addition to the choir, a group of drummers from Uruguay provided an energetic interlude.

Later in the evening, more roasted pig was consumed in honor of the belated one year anniversary celebration for the Big Bear Café, which is located adjacent to the Farmer’s Market.

Anyone else check them out?
