Plans Underway for Expansion of Popular FRESHFARM Market
The MVT CID is very excited to have partnered with FRESHFARM Markets to relocate and expand the popular Saturday farmer’s market in 2017. After three years of growing sales and clear feedback from residents that they would enjoy more selection, plans are underway to grow the market substantially with a move to I Street NW, between 4-1/2 and 5th Streets NW and adjacent to Milian Park at 5th and Mass. The plan received 13 letters from neighboring businesses in support of FRESHFARM’s public space application to the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) — a strong signal that surrounding property owners and retailers recognize the value of both the market and related foot traffic to their operations — with ANC6E providing on Tuesday, February 7 its unanimous support for the DDOT request.
