Eastern Market: A Tribute.

Project Beltway

In case you all haven’t yet heard the sad news, Eastern Market all but burned to the ground last night. Read the story from The Washington Post here and a great piece by Mark Fisher here.

This came as such a shock this morning. I was there yesterday, and I spent a wonderful leisurely afternoon enjoying what everyone loves about the place: sampling and buying delicious fruits and vegetables, digging through bins of vintage linens and daydreaming about the home I might decorate someday, and people watching of course. As a small-town transplant, I’ve always treasured the laid-back, neighborhood vibe at the Market and the family-owned businesses in particular. I can’t get the face of the man who sold me fresh pasta yesterday out of my head.

Keep reading for some more pictures from the last Sunday at Eastern Market. I suspect it won’t be the same for a long time.
