Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Meat deals at Florida Market

Meat deals
Originally uploaded by rllayman.
The Florida Market, by the New York Avenue Metro Station, is open Tuesday through Sunday. It's more oriented to a lower-income demographic with a big focus on meat sales--which more than one half dozen stalls specialize in.

Unlike Eastern Market, stalls also sell clothing, and a number of stalls sell groceries, including commercial sized cans and bottles of items ranging from condiments to beans.

On Sunday, even on a Holiday Weekend, the market was bustling.
