Mt. Vernon Triangle's new Liberty Market, a farmer's market, has opened for business. The market located at 7th and K Streets, NW on the grounds of the old Carnegie Library, now home to The Historical Society of Washington, DC, will be open every Tuesday afternoon from 2:30-6:30 p.m. Producers expect that vendors will offer fresh produce as well as prepared food, beverages, art work, and live music.
Liberty Market is produced in cooperation with The Historical Society of Washington, DC by Michael Berman of Diverse Markets Management, which also runs the Sunday Eastern Market and the downtown holiday market.
Though last week's inaugural debut saw only six vendors and one musician, the market managers are eagerly expecting to add new vendors. Bill McLeod Executive Director of Mount Vernon Triangle Community Improvement District (CID) said " We hope the market will grow as word gets out and vendors tell other vendors." And musicians tell other musicians...
"This exciting neighborhood keeps getting better and our substantial population of residents and office workers are continuing to benefit from the focus of the area's retailers and service providers," said Jeff Miller, Chairman of the Mt. Vernon Triangle CIDs. Interested vendors can contact Diversified Markets Management at (202) 543-3370 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Now if they can just figure out how to resolve DC's most odious traffic circle that surrounds it.
