District Flea “going on hiatus–effective immediately” – Union Kitchen Possibly Taking Over the Space

945 Florida Ave, NW

Thanks to a vendor of District Flea for passing on:

“Eric from Brooklyn Flea here, writing on behalf of Hugh and my partner, Jonathan Butler.

After much deliberation and with much sadness, we are sorry to report that District Flea in its current incarnation is going on hiatus–effective immediately, the Flea is no longer operating, including this Saturday’s market.

We don’t take this decision lightly. We know how much valuable time and effort you have all invested in making District Flea distinctive since last fall, and we are sincerely grateful to everyone who participated, whether once or weekly. We are so proud of the high quality of goods and food District Flea offered, of the professionalism and class our vendors displayed, and of the community spirit the market generated in its short run.

We want to thank Hugh for his Herculean efforts in assembling a world-class destination from scratch within a matter of weeks, and for steering District Flea through its share of storms, literally and figuratively. Thanks Captain Hugh!

In the end, the volume of vendors didn’t support our ambitious business model for a weekly market. We think this location still has a lot of potential, so stay tuned for news in the future.”

Word on the street is that Union Kitchen may take over the space but updates when more info is known.
