The Melrose Market street festival, part of a slew of summer festivals on the Hill this year, brought locavores and foodies out for a partly sunny Sunday of fresh and local artisan foods like gourmet cheeses from the Calf and Kid and BBQ sandwiches from Sitka and Spruce, among others.
There was also live music and fashion shows from Velouria Boutique but, for the most part, the day was about hanging out and enjoying local, sustainable, organic food.
With one more block party coming up this next weekend hosted by the Pearl Apartments next Sunday, we’re curious to know what you’ve thought of this summer’s selection and which events you’ll add to your calendar again next year.
In the meantime, it was a busy weekend for photogenic Capitol Hill moments. Here are a few images from us. We’ll watch for more from you over the coming days.
Look, the Melrose fair even had models:
Just up the street from the Melrose activities, we found a guerrilla garage sale underway around the edges of the People’s Parking Lot at Belmont and Pine. We talked to a couple of the people selling their goods and it sounds like the space works out nicely as long as you clean up your junk. You might give it a try if you are looking for a place to hold a little closet sale and don’t have a garage of your own.
Meanwhile, thanks to a connection we made at the Melrose party, we got a look at the Bunka Women’s University Japanese Fashion show that went down at the Broadway Performance Hall on Saturday afternoon thanks to Capitol Hill photographer @LawrenceLeung. You can find more images from the show at Lawrence’s site, CURIOUSANGLE.
