H Street NE signCapitol Hill-area residents soon will have the opportunity to do some alfresco grocery shopping with a beer in hand on the H Street corridor.

The inaugural “Twilight Farmers Market” at the Starburst Plaza is scheduled to run tomorrow from 3 to 7 p.m, according to H Street Main Street, which is organizing the event. The plaza is located at the intersection of H Street, Maryland Avenue, Bladensburg Road and Benning Road NE.

The market will have 10 to 20 vendors selling seasonal produce, meat and other food. Beer and wine also will be sold.

After its first run this week, the market will return every Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m. until mid-September.

“Nighttime farmers markets are blurring the lines between grocery shopping and entertainment–a fun night out that speaks to urban citizens of every age,” H Street Main Street said in a Facebook post. “And with summer temperatures soaring across the country, these markets are catching on at just the right time.”

    Hmmmm. I think that it is illegal to drink beer at the plaza. Commissioner Henderson will get you busted.

      H Street Main Street has permission to sell beer and wine in the event area.

        Interesting, since the police has been chasing off the regular crowd for public drinking, and even installed a camera there.
