Pop-up farmers market
If you need a taste of farmers market fare to tide you over until spring, stop by the indoor Kingfield Fulton Winter Farmers Market Jan. 24 at Bachman's on Lyndale.
Produce for sale will include apples, squash, carrots, onions and potatoes. Pastries, bread, cheese, salmon, salami and locally raised beef, chicken and pork also will be available for purchase. Food vendors will be on hand with hot food for breakfast and lunch, with local beer and wine available by the glass. Or browse the craft offerings that include handmade soaps and pottery while listening to live music.
The market runs from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Jan. 24 and again Feb. 28. Look for it in the Bachman's greenhouse at 6010 Lyndale Av. S., Mpls.
DIY for the crafty generation
A new social aggregator brings decor and DIY projects from across the Time Inc. brands together on one website targeting millennials.
The Snug (thesnug.com) will feature topics ranging from how to repurpose old furniture to retro apartment decorating, using content from InStyle, Real Simple, Southern Living and This Old House, as well as from partners that include Apartment Therapy, CasaSugar and HomeTalk.
Market research shows that millennials have spent billions on crafts and DIY projects in the past decade, according to Time Inc. To further tap into that generation's psyche, the site will be driven by community participation, with original content — including video — to be rolled out soon.
Not all the content seems designed to appeal solely to millennials — Mason jar crafts aren't exactly generation-specific, for instance. But some of the Snug's tone is aimed at reaching a younger target, with launch-day topics including DIY Welcome Mats (and DIY Unwelcome Mats) and a $10 Gift Guide Full of Stuff That Doesn't Suck.
