Deets: Over the last 30 years, the Washington, D.C. Chinatown area underwent a drastic gentrification process that caused property values to increase significantly. Many East Asian-American restaurant proprietors and small business owners were forced to sell, close, or move out to suburban areas offering cheaper commercial space.
We here at the Chinese Street Market are striving to build a community that supports the preservation of Chinese culture in Chinatown. To that end, we’re starting with bringing D.C. a Chinese street market atmosphere, where local vendors will offer irresistible snacks and eats based on East Asian street-food concepts, including Dan Dan Noodles, BBQ Skewers and Ma Po Tofu, and many more! This is the first scheduled market and will be recurring every month on a seasonal basis if it meets the demand. How often we can host the market depends on how much you want and care about it. We are calling your support to become our market partners and ambassadors. We hope that this cultural and culinary market will increase the visitation for authentic food in Chinatown which eventually help revitalize and preserve the historical and meaningful culture of the area.Carefully Picked and Proudly presented :
