On Saturday, July 21, the Eat Local First weeklong celebration of local foods came to and end with the Farm-to-Street Party on the 1300 block of V Street NW. Although cloudy and rainy, the weather did not stop neighbors and hungry residents from gathering and enjoying a great urban block party.
There were plenty of dishes made with local ingredients, as well as local craft beer, wine and live music. Attendees also had the opportunity to buy from local retailers and take craft food classes in the event’s pop-up park.
Some participating businesses from the Borderstan area included Busboys and Poets, The Diner, Eatonville, Local 16, Whisked! and Logan Hardware.
