Great news. I have been contacted by the woman behind the Bloomingdale, Mt. Pleasant and U Street farmers market. I'd like to plan on meeting with her sometime next week.
"I am the Director of the Mount Pleasant, 14 & U and
Bloomingdale Farmers' Markets. I would be glad to come to a meeting
in Petworth and talk about how we started the farmers' market in
Bloomingdale -- and what it would take to start one in Petworth...."
So what do you think, do we want a Farmers Market in Petworth? Do we know why the efforts by the owner of Domku were unsuccessful? I remember signing a petition a while back. Should we involve Muriel Bowser in this effort? By the by, any opinion on how we think our Councilmember has represented so far? But most importantly are we going to make a real effort for a farmers market?
