Just a few weeks ago, we told you about a brand-new market set to debut at Block 37 soon. Well, that "soon" has become today, and Tasting Table's Open Market will start slinging its delicious fare this evening at 6 p.m. And—if you're still hungry—the market will be open on Saturday as well. (You can check out the ticket info here.)
