Mount Vernon Triangle Market

The Liberty North Community Market at 5th & I ceased operations in July. The market was unable to gain momentum under the operations of Chef Kenac. The Mount Vernon Triangle Community Improvement District (MVTCID) reviewed responses to their RFP and has selected Diverse Market Management to serve as market manager. The market could be relaunched as soon as Sunday August 28th under the branding of the Mount Vernon Triangle Market.

You may remember that Diverse Market Management was affiliated with a past attempt to run a market on Mount Vernon Square. That arrangement came undone over DCRA permitting issues.

    I think one of the big problems of the market is marketing. No one in the surrounding areas (i.e., the condo buildings) had any idea it was there. The Walker Jones farm has done a MUCH better job of marketing – there is a big sign when I walk out of City Vista pointing out the the hours, etc. Also, I was given a flier about WJ farm goods. If this market is going to work – they need to do some marketing to the community, not just expect people to go.

    There also was not much there that locals would be interested that I saw the couple times I strolled through. I want fresh produce and other ingredients, not a bunch of nick nacks
