La Cosecha Latin Market to Open this June in the Union Market District


La Cosecha, EDENS’ contemporary Latin market, will open this summer in the heart of the nation’s capital and the Union Market District. Meaning “the harvest” in Spanish, La Cosecha, will be a central gathering place celebrating Latin American arts, culture and heritage. Fusing education and experience, La Cosecha will bring a collection of first-to-region restaurants, retail, cultural programming and pop-ups to Washington. The La Cosecha community will be comprised of artisans, businesses and entrepreneurs delivering authentic foods, flavors and craftsmanship to the nation’s capital. The market’s partnerships with Latin embassies, cultural and diplomatic leaders and strategic stakeholders from the Latin community will solidify La Cosecha as a national platform for Latin culture and cuisine. Cultural opportunities for the larger community will include art exhibits, film screenings, live performances, media lab space and outdoor activations throughout the year. Also as part of its community outreach, La Cosecha will work in tandem with the Carlos Rosario School, which has transformed the lives of tens of thousands of immigrants in D.C. by investing in and supporting their development and skills. The complementary Carlos Rosario Culinary Arts Internship Program will provide internship job placement opportunities, work experience and exposure via La Cosecha’s retail partners. Another highlight is EDENS’ newly established La Cosecha Foundation, which will contribute to and support important causes in Latin America. Retail partners will donate a portion of sales to the Foundation to achieve this goal. La Cosecha is slated to open in June 2019. For more information, visit www.lacosechadc.com and @lacosechadc.
