"..."I was selling my apothecary things at various markets," says Beauvoir, "but I wasn't really finding the right niche for what I was doing. And I met some other kind of witchy vendors, and I had an idea for a Dark Moon market, and I thought it would be a good thing – and so did a lot of other people..."
"...The first melons of the year are beginning to come in. Two Happy Children Farm will be bringing the first cantaloupes of the season to the Barton Creek Market and the Cedar Park Market this Saturday..."
"...The watermelons are “personal” size, and they are red and ripe and sweet. (All markets)..."
"...This Sunday, her “grassroots business directory,” Impulse Austin, will host its first-ever event. Karma Werqs is a queer networking-meets-market experience bent on uniting local business owners, artisans, organizers, and talent..."

"...Picnic lunches may be packed at home or gathered from a slew of wonderful local vendor samples and stocked items for purchase. Check out the event info from co-sponsor Edible Austin's website for a complete list of vendors, including HOPE Farmers Market vendors, The Soup Peddler, Zhi Tea, Good Pops, Green Corn Project, East Side Compost Pedallers, Imagination Playground, and many more...."
"...With much fanfare, the downtown Austin Farmers' Market opened at Republic Square park in May of 2003. Why did the market garner such publicity and visibility? It's not as if a farmers' market is a novel idea..."
"...VALUES, AESTHETICS, AND TASTE BUDSFarm to Market Grocery..."
"...Ask Hana World Market or Asahi Imports for their thoughts on Austin's first H Mart and 99 Ranch Market and you'll hear a story far from the online hype surrounding the big-box stores' recent arrival. "My ultimate goal is if I can survive six months, I think I'll be golden," says Yunhui Lee, who owns Hana World, the Asian supermarket on Parmer Lane..."
"...In designing the new store, a large bakery was a priority. The new bakehouse is helmed by Robin Roosa, a master baker who trained at Whole Foods, Randall's, and Wild Oats Market cooperative in Massachusetts...."
"...It's not a new industry practice: Taxi companies have employed such partnerships for years, and fledgling ATX Co-op Taxi has made it a primary endeavor for their success. RideAustin passed the 2 million-ride milestone in late June, and continues to market its core business, along with a premium service, on social media..."
"..."It's a beautiful dream. But people are still really cynical about planning, and we're still hearing from the development community that the ECT vision will never happen and the market won't go there..."
"...Previously occupied by Cliff Fort’s Flower Market, the charming Forties home has been lavished with an inordinate amount of detail work determined to maintain the integrity of the building. It is both rustic and nostalgic with reclaimed wood floors, high ceilings, and plenty of natural light punctuating the already bustling space..."
"...JH: When Blue Vinyl screened for packed audiences at Sundance, audiences were offered the opportunity to participate in a "direct action" to influence the PVC market by signing postcards to Intimate Brands, the parent company of Victoria's Secret and Bath and Body Works, encouraging them to use readily available alternatives to PVC packaging. By the end of our Sundance week, and 1,500 postcards later, Intimate Brands called Greenpeace -- who had initiated the activist fax and e-mail -- to discuss their PVC policy..."
"...They don't charge enough for expensive medical services, requiring their patients to be privately insured thus increasing revenues. Seeing how there are so many other hospitals and medical groups stampeding to treat Austin's working poor and uninsured, it is interesting to note that Seton has even bothered to compete in this cash-cow market..."
"...When the new Austin Farmers' Market opens this weekend in Republic Square Park, the downtown block will once again be the site of commerce, community interaction, and celebration with music and food, in keeping with its established place in Austin's history. The block was one of the original public squares planned by Edwin Waller when he designed a plat for the new city in 1839, and for much of the next 160 years, it was an important gathering place for Austitines...."
"...Roughly eight years before, she'd bought a trio of small Victorian-era cottages lined up along Salina Street, just a block from the intersection of East 12th and Chicon, ground zero for a decades-old open-air drug market and the criminal behavior associated with a mall for addicts – including thefts, assaults, and prostitution...."
"...Austin Energy's solar incentive program has made great strides recruiting affluent residents to its zero carbon emission agenda, but it has historically been less successful at straddling the city's economic divide. In an effort to reach underserved markets, the public utility is currently considering a drop in its rebate on solar panel installations for residential to a flat rate as a means of pivoting its demographic focus from homeowners to renters..."
"..."There's a new spirit of cooperation between our industry and the policy-makers," observed Tonjes, who also chairs the Green Building Subcommittee of the National Association of Home Builders. He noted that $90-per-barrel oil and consumer market demand for "green" homes didn't hurt in bringing the usually conservative industry around to the virtues of energy efficiency..."
"...The Port-a-pak was a brand new piece of consumer gadgetry from Sony that put the "home" in "home video." Weighing around 25 to 30 pounds, it had a platform about the size of a laptop computer with two open reels on it (something akin to a reel-to-reel tape deck) that fit inside a fairly large over-the-shoulder carrying case. Out of the case came a wire that was attached to the camera, a bulky doodad that looked like a hybrid between a radar gun and the average video camera available on the market today...."
"...They'd be much better off without her, they surmise. When the strange old woman they perform garden chores for hints that `the ancients” had ways of trading moms in at the Mommy Market for more desirable models, these three kids are all ears..."
"...KMT: Well, in a town where there is pretty much zero market pressure, galleries and artists have the freedom to present shows in a manner that aims to really support the work. Often a clean, neutral, 67-inch on-center hang is what serves the work best, but I'm interested in seeing shows in which you can really feel that the artist and curator have considered how the work should be engaged..."
"...We had the idea of starting a music festival. We did a little market study with students in a marketing class to see if this would be a good place for this thing we were trying to create, the New Texas Festival, and all the studies came back that this would indeed be a fine place to do this..."
"...It's even bleaker on the hiring front: With the shadow of possible layoffs later in the year, Ott had told Human Resources to put a hold on filling vacancies, and it will be up to department directors to prove "critical need" to fill positions. For anyone hoping for a pay raise, he's also postponing phase II of the annual market review, which was intended to keep City employee wages competitive...."
"...The ACPP set a goal for the city fleet to become carbon neutral by 2020. "As vehicles become eligible for replacement, they'll be replaced by the best available technology on the market," noted Walls, who hopes to be buying plug-in hybrids by 2010..."
"...The Austin Police Department has issued a request for the public's assistance to identify the person of interest – described as a white or Latino male, thin, and wearing glasses – captured on security camera footage. The mosque attacks appear to be part of a pattern in the community: Glass entry doors were shattered at Middle Eastern grocery store New Madina Market on North Lamar in the early hours on Monday, Sept..."
"...Those numbers, and screaming headlines in the media, have predictably resulted in a near-hysteria when it comes to pit bulls, causing breed restrictions – imposed by local laws or, more commonly, by the housing market. That's what we see here in Texas, where our health and safety statute prevents local governments from passing breed restriction ordinances, stating that cities can only place restrictions on dangerous dogs if those restrictions "are not specific to one breed or several breeds of dog."..."
"...Thanksgiving comes early this year, so the time to order sweets and other holiday meal enhancements is hard upon us. Area bakeries, restaurants, and market bakers are will gladly provide sweets for the holiday table..."
"...Miley Cyrus has sold out arenas both as herself (she has a lovely, country-inflected singing voice) and as the fictional Montana, which sparked a 3-D concert film released in theatres last year. It's work enough for neophytes to sort out who's who – in Montana land and the mortal plane – and I won't pretend to understand the phenomenon; it surely boils down to some combination of commercial savvy; Cyrus' sweet, uncomplicated charisma; and a tween market hungering for a happy compromise between relatability and wish fulfillment..."
"...The Fusebox leaders said they shared the concerns about cost and gentrification and reiterated their commitment to the neighborhoods. Berry offered some preliminary numbers regarding the housing – 300 units at 20% of market cost, with no apartment costing more than $1,000/month – though he added that these were goals and the real figures still had to be worked out..."
"...Rand Paul or Ted Cruz to force it to its knees. Despite all the brinksmanship of the last few weeks, on Tuesday – October 1 – the enrollment process begins for the "Health Insurance Marketplace" (aka "health exchanges"), and those who qualify will begin receiving coverage Jan..."
"...The talented and energetic folks from Creative Action (formerly Theater Action Project) certainly know how to throw a good party! The I Spy Pie event last weekend on the deck outside Central Market attracted families with kids of all ages and everyone had a great time...."
"...With all this ballyhoo about Pride and QueerBomb, a central tension has arisen from the preoccupation with something called The Gay Dollar. The Gay Dollar is, for anyone wishing to know, the shorthand for market analysis on those LGBTQI persons with disposable incomes..."
"...Novosad's BBQ and Sausage Market in Hallettsville takes great pride in continuing a tradition of doing things a little bit different than most of the other barbecue joints on the coastal plains of Texas. In this Czech community they like their smoked meats well done and juicy..."
"..."I don't want to know who owns the companies." And forget about a living wage for city employees: "I'm not in favor of minimum wage at all. If the market were just allowed to work, people would actually make more money..."
"...Still, the problem is that many types of certification are extremely expensive to obtain. It costs ten thousand dollars to get organic certification, a process that can be prohibitively expensive for small farmers, making it meaningless if you’re buying locally from farmer’s markets..."
"...Other major free events include a job market in the Austin Convention Center open on Saturday, March 12, and Sunday, March 13. There are also plenty of smaller things going on that don't require you to blow any cash, like an exhibition of poster art, award shows, and SX Create (a space showing off 3-D printing, drones, and other high-tech curiosities)..."
"...One marker for the beautiful Hill Country hamlet, Wimberley, is its monthly Lions Market Days held each first Saturday. The assumption was that the June Market Day would have to be postponed due to traffic and other road hazards..."
"...His predecessor as communications boss, Andy Welch, was an old-school press guy. Sanchez is a marketing man; his roots in PR for pharma giant Pfizer show when he talks about messaging..."
"...For the uninitiated: Jackfruit is that lumpy, green, gourd-like fruit about the size of your three-year-old niece. You might have passed one in an Asian market and, among other things, jackfruit makes a killer barbecue pulled pork substitute...."
"...All the film’s technical contributions are top-notch, and director Guillermo del Toro and his regular cinematographer Guillermo Navarro capture some of the most vivid battle scenes ever recorded in megamonster movies. The script by Travis Beacham (Clash of the Titans) and del Toro makes a stab at injecting some lifelike traits into the human characters, but little of it registers because Charlie Hunnam exudes a blandness as the film’s leading man and Idris Elba as Commander Stacker Pentecost (yes, that’s his name) only comes alive during his 11th-hour speech about “canceling the apocalypse.” As the nerdy scientists who are also necessary characters in this genre, Charlie Day and Burn Gorman provide some amusing comic relief, while del Toro’s Hellboy Ron Perlman also amuses as a black-market peddler in Kaiju body parts..."
"...Mickel has a culinary degree from the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in Napa Valley and has worked at some of the top restaurants in the California wine country. Up until a couple of months ago, Mickel was the Senior Chef Instructor at the Lamar Culinary Center at Whole Foods Market; Mickel boasts that cellar manager Peterson is an excellent cook, too..."
"...As a rite of passage project, SANDE students join a culinary family when they learn to cook with culinary role models at the Limerick-Frazier House. Partnerships are being discussed with Central Market, Les Dames d'Escoffier, Eastside Memorial Green Tech High School, the Institute of Hospitality & Culinary Arts at Travis High School/Austin Independent School District, and the University of Texas' Division of Diversity and Community Engagement to engage a diverse community of volunteers as mentors to teach technical competencies and lead practical activities that build life skills and increase self-esteem in disadvantaged children...."
"...Capital Metro has "made contact" -- often simply by handing out one of these survey cards -- with more than 450,000 of your friends and neighbors since AIM began in April, although only about 8,000 people have actually offered their input, through various channels, to the AIM database. A much smaller number, 562 to be exact -- but statistically representative and all that, were surveyed as part of the first-phase market study that undergirds AIM, and of that number the vast majority think public transit is one of Metro Austin's top three civic priorities, and that traffic is the No..."
"...For Rick Schiller, ATY's Executive/Artistic Director, starting a theatre company in Austin was almost a necessity. Schiller had been trained as s director and had spent a year at the Children's Theatre of Louisville, but following his time there, he found the market for directors to be tighter than expected..."
"...It seems that no matter what we do or don't do, the parent-child relationship is fraught. This conundrum brings up another aspect of The Savages that makes it hard to market broadly: The film is likely to play differently to people of different age groups, maybe even sexes..."
"..."The market was still caught in that very traditional model of ... woman as damsel in distress..."
"...We care about the outdoors, but also know that everyone ‘logs out’ differently. Some folks want to talk over coffee, beer, or attend a market – or even take in a comedy show..."
