17th Street Market

This is the 17th Street Farmer's Market located right next to the Main Street Train Station and during the spring/summer/fall weekends, it's usually bustling with activity.

Unfortunately, during the winter, especially on weekdays, this area of town is a bit deserted and a less pretty side of Richmond shows. In Richmond, we have more than 1200 homeless adults, 49% of whom graduated from high school and 38% of whom are employed. If you're interested in more statistics on the homeless in Richmond, you should read Marc Leslie's work: Statistics on the Population of Persons Who are Homeless in Greater Richmond, VA, which was just updated last year.

    The plight of the homeless is a great tragedy which is easy to ignore. Thank you for sharing this photo and the statistics.
