The brand new Petworth Market was a great success this past Friday. It seems like this section of 9th St, NW (between Taylor and Upshur) was tailor made for a Market like this. In my opinion there are two elements to a great market: First, good fruit, vegetables, cheese, bread etc and second is the vibe. I’m happy to say the Petworth market succeeded on both counts. I think you can tell from the photos that this is the case. My only suggestion based on conversations with others would be, if possible, to change or extend the hours from 3 – 7 pm to 3/4 – 8pm (for those that work until 6pm). Thanks to the Petworth Community Market flickr group for the photos and thanks to all who were involved in making this such a great success.
Lots more photos after the jump.
