IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR ME THIS WEEKEND, JULY 14-15:  I’LL BE AT EASTERN MARKET ON SATURDAY, JULY 14, from 9 am to 4 pm, weather permitting. I AM UNCERTAIN ABOUT SUNDAY BECAUSE OF THE HEAT. My stall is on the Plaza at the North Carolina Avenue & 7th Street end of the Market building. Feel free to call or text me at 202-390-9069 to make sure I’m there, especially if the weather seems iffy.

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.

Need to pick up a piece you’ve already seen but can’t come by on a Market day? I work from my home in Adams Morgan. If you want to pick something up during the week, send me a text or call at 202-390-9069 or email maryjbelcher@comcast.net.

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.
