Eastern Market Blog

We Will Rebuild Eastern Market: When the tears have dried and the embers cooled, what comes next? Rebuilding, of course! New weblog Save Eastern Market is keeping track of progress on restoration, with photos and vendor updates. The Before and After cleanup comparison photos are a bright beacon of radiant hope.

(Props to Annie Earley for the photo of Eastern Market vendors, and thanks to Terrapin for the tip.)

Update: Tom links to more opportunities to support the resurrection of Eastern Market.

    The After pic link and the blog link are not working.

    They work for me, even with sessions cleared.

    Danny, thanks — after a dozen or so people told us over the past two days that the hostname for the website wasn’t resolving for them, yours was the last straw; I went and changed our DNS provider a few minutes ago. (Weird ones: someone who could get to the site one minute, then not again for an hour, then no problem for a few hours, then off again… but only at their office. Everywhere else worked fine.)

    Hopefully, this should iron itself out in the next half hour, as the DNS changes propagate their way through the tubes of the internet…

    It would be wise to have the market and Hines School management for the ‘Flea Markets’ be taken over by the ‘rebuild the market foundation’ ..since they are taking in a nice profit and the amount of money they take from the area would amount to a nice tidy sum to help rebuild the market….especially since having heard on NPR how they are struggling and need all the $$. Why should the outside ‘Maagers’ profit when it could be run by a local association? Is ir all politics? and who is being paid off? Go there count the vendors, the fees they are paying and what the market gets?
