It's National CSA Week, the most popular time of year for fans of local food to join a CSA, support a local farm, and begin the wait for all that great local produce. Rambling Roots Farm and Z Food Farm both still have spots available to join their CSAs, and learn more about Tooth of Lion's herbal apothecary CSA and their flower CSA. So many ways to support local farms!

Crazy to think that this Saturday will be our last market in February. We're having a great time at the winter markets, despite this wacky weather. A special thanks to the shoppers, the farmers, and the food artisans that come every week! See you Saturday.

The Woodlands shared their event.

Explore the Food of the Dead with author Sarah Lohman and the Historic Foodways Society of the Delaware Valley. From the home parlour to the funeral parlor; from Irish wakes to sitting Shiva, consumption offers comfort in a time of grief. In this talk we’ll look at the culinary traditions surrounding funerals throughout American history, and we’ll taste beer from Midas’s tomb, funeral cakes, and Mormon funeral potatoes.

The Study at University City named a top ten college town hotel by USA TODAY.

    These college town hotels are in a class of their own
    The best part about college these days just might be the new crop of hotels springing up on campuses around the country. Joining some of the more traditional homes-away-from-home are brands like Graduate and Study, whose hotels pay homage to the colleges - and college towns - they serve.

What can you learn from the brain of a genius?

    Who Stole Einstein's Brain?
    Einstein's brain has been on a bit of a journey, and most people aren't aware of it. There's a lot of debate as to whether or not the late, famed intellect had a unique brain structure, but few would argue that the story that began following his demise is anything other than a cloak-and-dagger thriller.
