The Petworth Community Market opens today! Join us from 4 PM to 8 PM every Friday starting today, May 20, through September 30 for this popular neighborhood gathering. Pick up fresh fruits and vegetables, egss, locally roasted coffee beans, pastries, aromatic teas, grass-fed meats, artisanal breads; linger to hear the weekly music.

The Petworth Community Market runs Fridays, 4 PM to 8 PM, through September 30, along Ninth Street at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Upshur Street, NW. Special events will occur throughout the summer, including chef demonstrations, artist appearances and local musicians. On the last Friday of each month, the market will feature live music from a variety of local bands.

Fresh off last week’s successful fundraiser at Domku Bar & Café, this year’s market builds on the successes of our inaugural year by welcoming SNAP benefits recipients with an EBT Machine and an “Extra Cash” program, accepting credit card transactions, hiring a new market manager, and ensuring more convenient hours for our customers.

North Capitol Main Street is heating it up at the old firehouse!

Join us this Saturday, May 21st, from 7 to 10 PM, 1626 North Capitol Street, NW.

$25 bucks (in advance, $30 at the door) gets you awesome live jazz, wine and beer, good eats, and door prizes from some of the hot businesses in this cool part of town.

Saturday, May 21, from 12 to 4p.m, 25 vendors will test their product at an almost risk free environment during the second Grey Market held at Local 16.

Grey DC, like many renegade markets popping up in cities, is an organization dedicated to building a stronger community in Washington DC. Grey DC allows vendors an outlet who lack the commercial kitchens and licenses needed to operate elsewhere. “The goal is for people to come into the program with an idea and come out a functioning business with a strong customer base,” explains founder Maya Robinson . “I’m hoping eventually people will go on to start filling empty retail spaces in DC.”

To enter the market, patrons must sign a waiver and pay a $5 fee. Specific vendor information can be found
