Columbia Heights Marketplace event this Wednesday

The Columbia Heights Community Marketplace is a great resource: fresh veggies, fruit, meat and bread from local farmers, plus lots of artisans and other neat things (Pleasant Pops popsicles, for example.) However, it doesn't operate in a vacuum, so they're hosting a fundraiser this Wednesday with beer and wine, local chefs cooking, giveaways, and artisans. Sounds like fun, and supporting a great cause. You can also donate if you can't make it.

Here's more:
