Fire at Eastern Market

I used to live near Eastern Market in DC — and have brunch and visit there — and I’m sorry to hear that the market’s South Hall was seriously damaged by fire.

Eastern Market is a valuable part of the city’s heritage and culture, and I hope it’s rebuilt. Markets are among the best things about cities. I wouldn’t think of Seattle without thinking of Pike Market, for example.

Here, a DC city councilman discusses what’s next for the market. Here’s also a Washington Post column about the market’s significance to the city.
