As reported here over the last year or so, the Scheele family is trying to sell the historic market that bears its name at Dumbarton and 29th St.
Soon after the building went on the market, Georgetown resident, Marc Teren, stepped forward to buy the building. Although he promised to keep the market around, given the controversy over his efforts to subdivide the Friendly estate on 31st St., many in the neighborhood were concerned.
A group of neighbors led by Mike Peabody eventually worked out a creative arrangement to secure the long term existence of the market. But GM heard from a reliable source this week, however, that the sale of the property to Teren is off.
GM will provide updates as he gets them, but as of right now it appears that the building is again for sale. What that means for the long term existence of the market, or the Lee family that operates it, is unclear.
