The inaugural District Flea, which drew crowds of excited Washingtonians to a 37,000-square-foot empty lot off Ninth Street NW on Sept. 14, is the brainchild of the organizers of the Brooklyn Flea and features vendors of antiques, vintage furniture and — everyone’s favorite — food. It continues through Nov. 30.
Dozens of vendors set up under tents and under the sun on the brisk opening day of the District Flea on Saturday in Shaw, just up the street from the 9:30 Club. The first day of the flea drew the curious, perhaps more than it drew serious shoppers. Marvin Joseph/The Washington Post
