IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR ME THIS WEEKEND, SEPT. 28-29: I’LL BE AT EASTERN MARKET SATURDAY FROM 9 AM to 4 PM, WEATHER PERMITTING. I WON’T BE THERE SUNDAY. My stall is on the plaza just north of the market house, near Seventh Street & North Carolina Avenue SE. Feel free to call or text me if you can’t find me or you want to make sure I’m at the Market: 202-390-9069.
Eastern Market is DC’s longest continually operating public market, dating to 1805 when President Thomas Jefferson approved the community’s request for a neighborhood market. (Seriously: he issued a presidential proclamation!) The original Eastern Market was located next to the Navy Yard on Capitol Hill. Today’s Eastern Market was opened in 1873. Eastern Market proudly reflects our city’s diverse cultures, where people of all colors, ages, and beliefs come to shop and mingle.
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.
Limited-edition prints, published by Old Town Editions of Alexandria, include the Rock Creek Park and National Mall maps, 18th Street in Adams Morgan, the Neighborhoods of Washington, DC, and the DC Cherry Blossoms Kimono. These numbered, signed pieces are created by Old Town Editions using the most advanced digital printing processes, resulting in the truest reproductions of the original watercolors that will last decades before yellowing in fading.
