A tipster sends word that the Adams Morgan Unity Market will be closing tomorrow (Unity Park is located at Columbia/Champlain/Euclid just east of 18th St, NW.) For those not familiar with the market you can read about it here.
Back in July ’11 DCist noted:
“Vendors have agreed to forgo operations on Saturday and instead open only on Thursday, Friday and Sunday as city officials look for a more permanent place to locate them.”
And back in Sept. ’10 City Paper wrote:
“Here’s the problem: Neighboring restaurants that sell similar food say the city-sanctioned market has stolen their lunch traffic on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday—the busiest days of the week.”
I’m hearing that their last day is tomorrow because apparently the DC Dept of Latino Affairs has not reapproved the permit for the market to operate.
So for the Friday Question of the Day – do you think the market should be able to continue to operate in the park? If not, do you think they should be allowed to open up at the triangle park at 14th and Oak St, NW in Columbia Heights? Elsewhere? Any other potential compromises?
