Big Plans for Capital City Market

Capital City Market is located at 6th and Florida Ave, NE. This huge news came from the Washington Post yesterday:

Richard Brandenburg, 37, has been hired by Edens & Avant, the giant East Coast real estate development company, to serve as its first director of culinary strategy.

Much of the chef’s focus will be on rethinking Capital City Market in Washington. Brandenburg hopes to stock the wholesale-retail center with multiple restaurants, a culinary school, even a USDA hub — “a fun mix,” he says. One of the models for the complex, which will bring together restaurants and distributors, is the esteemed, community-minded Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco.
