I really like the look of the market but I'm bracing for some douche to tag it. I'm sure that gleaming white canvas is calling out to some mutant in the tagging world for some incomprehensible scribble.

Hey, Banksy, fresh canvas !

Yeah, they need Robocop-style Gatling guns mounted on the market perimeter to fend off the tagging riff raff. That would rule.

ppppfffttt.

Just more gentrification. In my day, we had an "ice cream truck" that came by with bomb pops, gum, and cigarettes. That was fancy enough for us. We didn't need any "food trucks" selling "food".

@oboe

Bomb pops are still awesome.

Higly disappointed in the "new" Union Market. Where are the meat and fresh vegetable vendors? This "new" market definitely does not cater to everyone!

10:04,
The meat and produce vendors seemed to mostly be in the rear right corner. Prices are definitely higher than at the old DC Farmers Market. Luckily, Caribbean Crescent and US Beef provide very affordable meat options. Mexican Fruit and Sam Wang's offer affordable produce. All of these places are within a few blocks of the Union Market building.

What's wrong with market diversification? Different folks want different things, some high, some mid, some low. Funny--some of the folks complaining about gentrification have no problems advocating for "diversity" in other contexts, provided it's the "flavor" of diversity they favor.

I guess all the talk about gentrification makes me a little uncomfortable. It's a nice market, and a great addition. Sunday I went there for a second time and afterwards went to Mexican Fruit. I really wish people would simply support and enjoy the market.
