IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR ME THIS WEEKEND, NOVEMBER 17-18: I plan to be at Eastern Market on Capitol Hill, but please check back later in the week, as the weather forecasts become more certain. My stall is on the Plaza at the North Carolina Avenue & 7th Street SE end of the Market building. Feel free to call or text me at 202-390-9069 to make sure I’m there, or if you can’t find me.

Eastern Market is DC’s longest operating public market, dating to the city’s founding in 1790. Early city planners Thomas Jefferson and Pierre L’Enfant situated large markets in each of the District’s quadrants. The original Eastern Market was located next to the Navy Yard on Capitol Hill. It moved to its present location in 1873. Eastern Market proudly reflects our city’s diverse culture, where people of all colors, ages, and beliefs come to shop and mingle.

If there’s something you want before the holidays, come see me at the Downtown Holiday Market from Friday, November 23 through Sunday, December 9, noon to 8 pm each day.

WHAT DOES DC LOOK LIKE? The squat red building that is Ben’s Chili Bowl?  The White House? Frederick Douglass’s house?  The arches of Key Bridge, or the marshes of the Anacostia? I sell more than 100 views and maps of the city as matted prints, ranging in size from 8″x10 to 16″x20″ for $15 to $45 each.
