“Dear PoPville,

Are you a furloughed fed that has been getting creative with all of your spare time? Then come join fellow furloughed feds at the DC Petworth Farmers Market this Friday, October 18 from 4pm to 7pm. We’ll have a consignment-style booth where you can sell your crafts, art, and other creations. Unfortunately, you cannot sell food (sorry bakers) but you’re welcome to sell things that turn into food, like seeds you’ve saved from the season, recipes, etc.

Send an email to izzy(at) to sign up and for more information. In the event that the government opens this week, we’ll still have folks staffing the booth.

See you at the market!”
