Centre Market

Centre Market, once the largest market in Washington, D.C., opened to the public in 1871. By 1900, it was the center of a vibrant commercial life in Washington, D. C. Close to a railroad station and streetcar lines, sitting between the White House and the Capitol Building, the market was a crossroads for all of Washington, D. C. After years of success, it was torn down in 1931 to make way for the National Archives. Undaunted, many of the businesses relocated and created a new venue, Union Terminal Market at 4th Street and Florida Avenue NE, an area close to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Freight Terminal and highways to Maryland.

In 1962 however, the city banned the outdoor sale of meats and eggs which essentially killed the farmer’s market foot traffic. A new indoor market was built in 1967 (the building which is now the revitalized Union Market).

Financial transactions conducted through the Internet might be insecure due to possible risks of falling victim of fraudsters when using unreliable services that do not take enough measures to protect their customers’ data;
Some online services are not trustworthy because they do not provide original medications or offer incorrect descriptions of drugs available for purchase;
Some online pharmacies selling Rx medications are not fully certified and, therefore, may provide you with counterfeit drugs, which might cause harm to your health and general well-being.

Wholesale operations continued to grow in the broader market area until the 1980s when the aging industrial spaces began to show signs of wear and tear and many of the original merchants left the area for modern distribution centers and supermarkets in the suburbs.
