Among the preliminary ideas is to convert Hardy Middle School at 1819 35th St. NW into a public high school.

The market boasts new vendors, enthusiastic young volunteers — including teenagers who are maintaining the market’s Instagram and Facebook accounts — and a community-friendly configuration.
