Whoo Hoo! Michelle Obama Applies for Farmers' Market Permit!

Just had to post this great news. Got a notice from DCist that the First Lady's office has requested to close Vermont Avenue between H and I Streets NW between 1 p.m. and 8 p.m., every Thursday, for the market.

According to the DCist, this is the day and time that their readers and commentators were hoping for but the location was never discussed since it was unknown.

In this block, Vermont stretches between the far corners of Lafayette Square and McPherson Square. However, nothing is final and location could still change.

It is so great to see FLOTUS and POTUS so strongly supporting local food systems and farmers. It's something this LA Farm Girl has wished for a long time!
