Petworth Community Market Opening Day

Hear about the market redesign at the library

The Petworth Community Market's opening day is May 2, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.! The market is on the corner of Upshur and 9th streets NW.

You might notice some changes in the layout of the market space this year. The Design Apprenticeship Program, run by the National Building Museum, teamed up with the Petworth Community Market to improve the design of the space. The Design Apprenticeship Program teaches teens how to use design to solve community problems.

With the help of volunteers, teens are paired with a client and complete a project.

After visiting the market on May 2, come to Petworth Library to hear the teens talk about the design process. The presentation will begin at 1 p.m. in the large meeting room and will last about two hours.
