Mid-Point FRESHFARM Market Update: New Records Set for Sales & Customer Counts + Live Music & Sparkling Wine Tasting Tomorrow
Friday August 16, 2019
As Mount Vernon Triangle has grown, so has our beloved FRESHFARM MVT Market, which has only gotten better since its 2017 relocation and expansion from the plaza at 5th & K Streets NW to its new location at 5th & Eye Streets NW. And the great news just keeps coming: we’ve only reached the mid-point for this year’s market but new records have already been set—and we have the numbers to prove it! Through 13 weeks sales revenue has exceeded totals for all of last year (the previous record year), with customer counts up nearly 50 percent over the same period.
These results would not be possible without the continued support of our loyal market customers as well as the sponsors listed below – including VIDA Fitness City Vista, a new market sponsor starting tomorrow – whose generous financial support assists in bringing this very popular and value-additive amenity to our growing community.
The FRESHFARM MVT Market is an important part of what makes #LifeInMVT special, so join us this Saturday when Eye Street Cellars will host a Sparkling Rosé Smirnoff tasting from 11am-1pm for all patrons over 21 years of age. Eye Street Cellars will be selling the beverages in-store just steps away for 10% off during the market.
Market guests can kick off their morning by listening to live music by Adam Forbes while shopping for locally grown fruits and vegetables, meats, eggs, flowers, dog treats, and more!
