The Cleveland Park Business Association shares the good news:
“We are very happy to announce the long-awaited launch of the Cleveland Park Farmers Market! Permit applications have been submitted and we anticipate opening on Saturday, June 3. The Farmers Market will operate outdoors every Saturday morning from 8:30 AM- 12:30 PM, in the heart of the Cleveland Park on the West Side Sidewalk of Connecticut Avenue between Newark Street and the Uptown Theater.
This year’s launch of the Farmers Market is in direct response to a survey conducted in the Community. We were delighted to learn from the survey that an overwhelming 88% of respondents supported the Farmers Market and 80% of respondents intend to shop at the neighborhood businesses when they came to the Farmers Market. “We are hoping that the Farmers Market will remind and encourage the community to shop at and support their local bricks and mortar businesses all week. ” says Susan Lihn, owner of Wake Up Little Suzie, and CPBA’s Board Co-Chair.
CPBA has hired an experienced Market Manager to operate the Market. “We will track the impact of the market on our member businesses and make any needed improvements and changes to ensure that the Farmers Market is helpful to the local businesses and community” continues Pierre Abushacra, owner of Firehook Bakery & Coffeehouse and CPBA Board member.
“The Cleveland Park neighborhood business district is one of the few remaining places in the whole city where you can do your weekly shopping, drop off your dry cleaning, mail a letter, pick up groceries and wine, grab your pet supplies, shop for the perfect gift for a friend, enjoy a bite to eat at the many different restaurants, complete an arts & crafts project with your family, or take in a movie all within a two block area. Truly it is the neighborhood where one can live, shop and play in an urban, yet friendly, welcoming, family friendly residential neighborhood. And we hope that the Farmers Market will add to the sense of community that we have in Cleveland Park,” Lihn added.”
