Save Market 5 Gallery

For the 2nd time in 5 years the District Government, through its Office of Property Management (OPM) is attempting to evict Market 5 Gallery from the North Hall of Eastern Market. The last time it tried, the City was resoundingly defeated at every level of the judicial process. The Courts declared the City's eviction illegal,as well as OPM's attempt to wrest control of Market 5's Weekend Craft Festival. Market 5 has acted as a "Poor Man's Kennedy Center" for 35 years. It has created one of the very best Craft Markets in North America. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT. Call on Mayor Fenty and OPM to DO THE RIGHT THING: THE D.C. GOVERNMENT AND THE MAYOR NEED TO SUPPORT MARKET 5 GALLERY NOT EVICT IT. Market 5 is the very symbol of The American Dream. To evict Market 5 is to destroy an essential part of the most vital, diverse, and beautiful Market and neighborhood in D.C. Market 5 is truly God's kiss upon the cheek of our fair City.
