The Florida Avenue Flea Market Gives People Hope
LA PALABRA EPISODE 15
As frequent customers of the Florida Avenue Flea Market, La Palabra was disappointed to hear that the market will soon be forced out of its longtime spot at the corner of 9th St and Florida Ave. Located in the middle of rapidly-gentirfying U St, the market is one of the lingering spots that primarily serves low- and moderate-income people. We spoke to market regulars Kwasi and Dantes about why the market has to move and how the changing neighborhood affects the flea market.
