Hope Farms’ New Weekly Market Revs Up at Tootsies, Bering’s

It's about to be easier than ever to score farm-fresh produce! The Hope Farms Rolling Green Market has announced pop-ups at two spots already frequented by many Houstonians on a weekly basis.

Find just-harvested produce, plus fresh flowers, local honey, cookbooks and more on Fridays from noon until 2pm at Tootsies. And beginning Jan. 7, folks can also find the Rolling Green Market at Bering's on Westheimer every Thursday, also from noon until 2pm.

Hope Farms — the seven-acre urban farm operated by Gracie Cavnar's nonprofit, Recipe for Success — previously expanded its offerings to include front-door delivery on Tuesdays, in addition to its regular onsite farm-stand hours on Saturdays.

The organization's holiday gift ideas — available for purchase online and at the pop-up Market — include unique experiences like "farmer for a day" and facility tours, as well as weekly subscriptions for veggie delivery.

'Wild Symphony' by Dan Brown and composer Karl Blench

WHAT DOES AN armadillo even sound like?

It's a question Houston-based composer Karl Blench had to answer while orchestrating best-selling author Dan Brown's musical suite Wild Symphony, a collection of short pieces composed by Brown to accompany his first-ever book for children. On Saturday, Jan. 23, the Houston Symphony will livestream the North American premiere of Brown's Wild Symphony, with Robert Franz doing double-duty conducting and reading passages from Brown's book. And yes, we're talking about that Dan Brown, author of everyone-but-the-Pope's favorite airplane read, The Da Vinci Code, and six other cryptological thrillers for grown-ups.
