Liberty Market on Hiatus

The Liberty North Community Market is on hiatus until a new market operator can be secured. The market ran each weekend for the last several months at the 5th & I parking lot.

In early June the Mount Vernon Triangle Community Improvement District (MVTCID) issued a RFP for a new market manager. Below is a statement issued today from the MVTCID about the market’s hiatus:

“The public market at 5th and Eye Streets, NW will be closed while the city works out an agreement with the new management company. We hope the market will be up and running on Sundays in September, if not before.”

    That’s likely for the best. Our household has been trying to support the market but the last time we walked by, one table was selling knock-off designer purses and another was selling cell phone accessories. The time before that, I went to run an errand and was looking forward to stopping on the way back for a lemonade, only to find them all packed up several hours before the posted closing time.
