Tour and stuff

In February, we did a tour of the market with not quite 40 people in attendance. I haven't posted any photos, but as always it was a great experience.

There is another tour coming up Saturday April 25th as part of the Walking Town DC set of tours sponsored by CulturalTourismDC, and this time we will have a map and some information to pass out... and somehow, we'll put a link up to that soon-to-be-created document here.

Anyway, one of the people who came on the tour took her boyfriend to Florida Market this past weekend. He's French, and because he had never seen a market district in the U.S., he believed that such didn't exist here, unlike in France and the rest of Europe. He was ecstatic. (Now we have to take him to the Strip District in Pittsburgh.)

Sarah said that the two bags of fruit and vegetables they bought at Mexican Fruit cost $7.

Hi Richard,

Yep: lettuce, 4 mangoes, 4 red peppers, 1 lb. of baby carrots, a bunch of bananas, a whole bag of oranges, $7. We also nabbed a very fresh capon (chicken), grapes and watercress from the farmers market, and made the best Sunday lunch ever.

I'm taking my friend Judy back this weekend. All thanks to your tour!

Keep up the good work,
Sara
