Although many of us have been enjoying the Monroe Street Market development for a while now, it has actually been a work in progress since 2011 and is now mostly complete. So, its time for a Grand Opening party. From the Monroe Street Market Facebook page:
Now that all three buildings of Monroe Street Market are open, and our fabulous artist and retailers are now open, we thought it was about time to have a party! Join us for our grand opening starting on Thursday Oct 2nd for some live music, food, and beer garden by Brookland Pint. But come back for more on Friday and Saturday with more live entertainment and an extra special farmer’s market. Check out our poster for all the details!
The press release for the event lists Mayor Gray and Ward 5 Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie among others as speakers at the Thursday ribbon-cutting and tower lighting event.
