Hear local DJ “The Unknown” spin tunes, and enjoy drink specials from Domku as you get your photo taken at the on-site portrait station, provided by Mike Wilkinson Photography ($25 for a professional portrait, print and digital file). All proceeds will help the Petworth Community Market purchase an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) machine in order to accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly Food Stamps).

About the Petworth Community Market

The Petworth Community Market (PCM), a pending nonprofit, operates a weekly farmers market along Ninth Street, NW, at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Upshur Street, NW. The market runs Fridays, 4 PM to 8 PM, May 20 through September 30. Special events will occur throughout the summer, including chef demonstrations, artist appearances and local musicians. The market features live music from local bands on the last Friday of each month.

Situated near the newly renovated Petworth Library and amidst new development, PCM focuses on creating a marketplace where local farmers, producers, artisans and entrepreneurs can sell and trade their goods and services. Managed by a group of neighborhood volunteers, PCM strives to build community, encourage a vibrant streetscape, and create a sense of place within the Petworth neighborhood.
