On Saturday, a line snaked around the block at 16th and U streets NW—which isn’t that unexpected for Local 16, one of U Street’s notable late-night party spots. But the cause was a bit different. The second installment of the Grey D.C. Market, a “parallel market” which doesn’t require health department certification of its vendors, was held on Saturday afternoon.
I wrote about the Grey D.C. Market’s inaugural event back in January. Since then, the number of vendors more than doubled (from 11 to 25), and the crowds outgrew Kushi Izakaya & Sushi‘s side room to all three floors of Local 16. Below, a few scenes from Saturday’s Grey Market.
