Closed Adams Morgan outdoor marketplace reopens at 14th and Otis

Something I missed: we have a new outdoor market. 

The Unity Marketplace recently closed shop at its old location on Columbia Road in Adams Morgan due to a permit issue. They were open on weekends and they used to sell Latin American crafts and food (the churros and tacos were pretty solid). But now they moved to our area, opening at 14th and Otis in November. They've also expanded when they're open, Tuesdays through Sundays from 7:30am-6:30pm, and they've renamed themselves as the International City Fair.

Metro Diversity has more, including this on the what they'll have:
Food stands feature typical foods from El Salvador, Mexico, Peru, Argentina and the Caribbean. Artisans offer outerwear garments, specialty items and typical crafts. Once established, ICF will expand to include a greater variety of offerings. The objective is to provide healthy, economical food choices with fresh ingredients for a variety of tastes and an attractive, open air street fair for visitors and residents in the heart of the District. 
I haven't had a chance to stop by yet, but it sounds pretty cool. Anyone been?
