About Us

Eastern Market Main Street (EMMS) is one of the two new proposed DC Main Street programs that will launch in late 2016. Once the designation is issued, EMMS will seek to stabilize and rejuvenate the business community of the Eastern Market neighborhood of DC’s Capitol Hill. Specifically, EMMS will concentrate on 7th Street SE from North Carolina Avenue on the north to South Carolina Avenue on the south, Pennsylvania Avenue SE from Seward Square to the Eastern Market Metro Plaza, and C Street SE from 6th Street to 8th Street, SE, including the soon-to-open segment of C Street through the new Hine School development project.

Eastern Market Main Street, as an officially designated DC Main Streets District, will engage in small business retention and recruitment activities, provide small business technical assistance, work on promotional and marketing activities, and engage on public space design and management issues, among many other activities.
