Mayor Adrian M. Fenty announced yesterday that the newly renovated Eastern Market will reopen with a ceremony June 26 followed the next day by a community celebration.
Flanked by city officials, construction workers and merchants, Fenty (D) announced that vendors will return to the market at Seventh and C streets SE in Capitol Hill. The 136-year-old market, renowned for its food, flowers and flea markets, was heavily damaged in a fire in April 2007. Vendors continue to operate in a tent nearby while the city works on the $22 million renovation project.
Among those at the site for yesterday's announcement was Angie Brunson, who runs a flower market. "There's no place like home," she said.
The new site will include areas for the arts and cultural events.
