The Riverdale Park Farmer’s Market, situated just north of Washington, DC in a historic region of Prince George’s County, is open every Thursday from March to November. As a “producers only” market, everything is locally grown or made. To expand on “everything”, the market offers organic and conventionally-grown fresh vegetables and fruits, award-winning honey, European-style baked goods, pasture-fed meat, bedding plants, artisan breads, hand-made soaps, pottery, jams and jellies, fruit syrups, fresh cut flowers, as well as talented local artisans and musicians. Its site offers subscribers a list of vendors, market dates, and special events.

Current Gallery

Started in November 2004, Current Gallery is an artist-run cooperative, with about 1500 square feet of gallery space and about four times that for artist studios. The gallery was the first of its kind to develop out of a project courtesy of DPB and the city of Baltimore for artists to occupy an otherwise abandoned building rent-free between the time it takes the city to hand it over to the slated 25-story redevelopment plan of luxury apartments called CityScape . That’s right, Current won’t be forever so hustle on down there and get a dose of a much-needed yet ephemeral cultural music and arts venue.

Represented in the photo above is the galleries submission for Artscape 2006 called the "Dilapidated Reanimated Expo," which examines ways to reuse the city’s plethora of neglected property.
