Video: A look at the redevelopment of Union Market

Last month we wrote about the plans by developer Edens to try to overhaul a portion of the wholesale market in Northeast D.C. — referred to alternately as the Capital City Market and Florida Avenue Market — into a culinary destination akin to popular public markets in cities like New York and Seattle.

Edens president Jodie W. McLean, developer of the project, recently offered us a tour of the site midway through the redevelopment effort. The building, at 1309 5th St. NE, will host a James Beard Foundation dinner featuring a roster of big-name D.C. chefs in June, so there is a lot of work to be done.

But if Edens is successful, the project, dubbed Union Market after the strip’s historic name, could be a major first step in making the area a destination for more than just wholesalers, kitchen staff and the most adventurous foodies.
