Corner Store up for sale. The fine arts and performance venue, founded by Kris Swanson and Roy Mustelier, has been a community institution for more than 16 years. In an email to friends and patrons, Swanson said “As a home, this sturdy brick building fit us like a soft kid glove and we still love it beyond reason. …. Life in the heart of the US Capitol in that uniquely soulful space will clearly never be duplicated, but we’ve had our run. We hope the next owners find as much love and fun and comfort within its walls as we did.”

Access to the seafood market at The Wharf was pretty tightly controlled and overseen by MPD.
Last Thursday, the US House of Representatives assembled to pass a $484 billion installment of the CARE Act to benefit small businesses and hospitals affected by the health care crisis, and to provide funds for testing.
Saturday afternoon, the Farmers Line at Eastern Market was in business (later that day Eastern Market was in for a deep cleaning and temporary closure after a DGS staffer tested positive for COVID-19). Some farmers are grumbling about the 9:00am-1:00pm hours of operation and are pressing for the same 5:00pm closing time for the inside merchants.
Around the corner, in front of the Rumsey Aquatic Center, the Compost Center is back in business from 900am – 1:00pm on Saturdays.
