Cleveland Park Looking to Launch a Farmers Market

Thanks to a reader for sending from the CP Listserv:

The Cleveland Park Citizens Association (CPCA) and the Cleveland Park Business Association (CPBA) have been collaborating for several months to co-produce a Farmers Market along Connecticut Avenue. We have been working with the manager of the Palisades Farmers Market to replicate that model here in Cleveland Park. It is a small, intimate, friendly, local neighborhood-serving model. It is intended to compliment our existing bricks and mortar stores, not compete with them. We are about to submit our permit application for Public Space use. (There was a small glitch in the DDoT on-line permitting system that caused some confusion.) Pending DDoT approval, here are the particulars:

* Every Saturday from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
* Located on the west Connecticut Avenue sidewalk between the Four Fields and
USPS year round
* Starting as soon as we get our permit, hopefully later this month!
* 10 vendors and 2 tables to showcase local organizations and/or existing local

We are appearing at the ANC3C meeting this Monday to seek its approval and endorsement. If you are so inclined, it would be wonderful to appear in support of the Market! The meeting begins at 7:30 and is in the 2nd District Police headquarters on Idaho Avenue. The meeting is held in the community room.
