ANC6B Endorses Wednesday Farmer’s Line at Eastern Market – Could Be in Operation this Summer
by Larry Janezich
At Tuesday night’s ANC6B meeting, the ANC endorsed a tentative plan by Eastern Market Manager Barry Margeson to have a mid-week farmer’s line at Eastern Market.
Commissioner Brian Pate, the ANC’s representative to the Eastern Market Community Advisory Committee (EMCAC), reported to the Commission that a plan is in the works to open the new farmer’s line, possibly this season. Commissioner Ivan Frishberg, in whose single member district the Market lies, said “this is a great idea, long overdue.”
Margeson is reportedly waiting for EMCAC to sign off on the idea, but it seems likely they will approve the plan. EMCAC will next meet on Wednesday, March 28 in the market’s North Hall.
The ANC vote was 8 – 0 – 1, with Planning and Zoning Committee Chair Francis Campbell abstaining until more details regarding how parking for vendors and patrons are available.
