Voices of Eastern Market

In preparation for the June 26, 2009, reopening of Eastern Market, the Overbeck Project interviewed people from many groups associated with the Market. The people we've already interviewed are listed below. Completed transcripts can be accessed from this page. Other interview transcripts are still being processed.

Please keep checking back, because we're continuing to interview and transcribe. We'll update this page regularly as we complete the transcripts.
