Mayor Fenty Announces Reopening of Renovated Eastern Market

Mayor Adrian M. Fenty will reopen the historic Eastern Market at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, June 26 followed by a community celebration on Saturday, June 27. The two events will mark the completion of the market’s renovation and recovery from fire damage caused in April 2007.

“Capitol Hill community members deserve a fully restored market and it has been my Administration’s priority all along that they get exactly that.” – Mayor Fenty

“I’m thrilled that Eastern Market is on the verge of reopening. The devastating fire was a blow to our whole community, but the way in which the city rallied around the Market as more than just a building proved how important it is to the fabric of our neighborhood.”
– Councilmember Tommy Wells.
