Current Newspapers story about Florida Market by Kevin West

Kevin West, blogmaster of A Portable Snack, writes:

My wife and I go to the Capital City Market all the time. The new blog is terrific! I recently wrote a piece for the Current Newspapers (Georgetown Current, Dupont Current, etc.) about the Capital City Market. Unfortunately, they don't have an online edition, so it's not posted anywhere, but I've attached it for you to do with as you please.

I also blogged about the market on my blog, "
New Town/Capital City Market Redevelopment."

Current Newspaper article (at 3/4 size, eventually I'll scan the article at full-size), from 12/13/2006:

Philly's Italian Market

Want to see a video about a similar market in Philadelphia? Yes, the Italian Market has more to offer in terms of restaurants, coffee shops, and overall consumer friendliness, but the Capital City Market has potential to become something similar. Personally, I'd like to see more of the places sell retail, as well as wholesale. I'd also like to see better signs indicating which places do sell retail (because many currently do, but the only way you know which ones is to go with someone who already knows).
