Eastern Market Announces New Outdoor Venue

Barry Margeson, manager of the historic Eastern Market, announced plans last night at the monthly meeting of the Eastern Market Community Advisory Committee to expand the Market's operations across 7th St. SE to the concrete slab that once supported the temporary East Hall.

"I am very excited about this new venue. I think it will give us more room for tree sales and other festive events," said Barry Margeson.
