Florida Market Tour, Saturday April 4th

From the Capitol Hill North Neighborhood Association:

Explore Florida Market
When: Saturday, April 4, 2009
Where: Meet at the SW corner of 4th and Morse Street.
Time: 10 AM
Cost: Priceless/Free

Explore Florida Market. The tour pairs the historical significance of the market with visits to shops selling produce, food and other hard to find goods. The tour ends at A. Litteri’s the oldest continuously operating Italian deli in the city serving some of the best Italian sub sandwiches in the city!!!

Led by urban revitalization advocates, this tour is a partnership with Capitol Hill North Neighborhood Association, Trinidad Neighborhood Association, Frozen Tropics weblog, and Rebuilding Place in Urban Space weblog. Be prepared for cash only purchases and the spirit of the city’s largest wholesale market.

Flickr photo by emilygoodstein of a past Market tour. The photo features a shot of the "guerrilla wayfinding and interpretational signage" that was created by Christopher Taylor Edwards and myself. While we haven't erected actual signs (yet), we will be passing out copies.

Pdfs of the signs are here:

-- Florida Market Map & Directory
-- Florida Market History Sign

although they are in the process of being updated for next week's tour.

Hey Richard,

I took your walking tour of Florida Market a few months ago [it was great, and very informative], and was hoping to take a friend who loves food by this weekend. It looks like the map you created is down for now. Is there a link where I can find a working copy? It's such a great resource, would love to have it when I exploring this weekend!
