There's a new farm market in town. The newest entry in the growing trend debuts Friday, October 16th at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington.
Backing the new market is the General Services Administration, and with consultants Todd and Ellen Gray of Equinox restaurant, 18 vendors will bring their goods this Friday and on Friday, November 13th, from 12:30pm on this Friday, and from 1pm on in November.
Ellen Gray tells the Washington Post a feature of the market will be prepared foods. The restaurant co-owner believes the Obama administration has created a new interest in food, and that since there are 6,000 government employees in the area, the Reagan Center is a good spot to draw people who may not visit the Dupont market on Sundays.
