After walking around the still-smoldering Eastern Market yesterday evening, Shannon and I put a little time into starting up a new website, Save Eastern Market. We’re hoping to use it to provide a centralized resource for everything related to the fire and the rebuilding process; we remain cautiously optimistic that common sense and an overriding faithfulness to the character that made Eastern Market so tremendous will serve as guiding principles in the coming months, and wanted to be able to document that process as it moves forward.

So far, we’ve posted a welcome message, a bunch of news links, and a firsthand account of the Mayor’s press conference to the site, and we’re hoping to continue with news pointers, information about interim plans for the Market, notices of community meetings, and anything else that helps keep the neighborhood abreast of the rebuilding process. Hope to see you over there!
