BalloonsHappy Birthday to Knollwood Village!  Today is a great day to meet at Linkwood Park, 3699 Norris Drive, to celebrate this great neighborhood’s history and future.  The celebration is from 2-5 p.m. and includes food, music, children’s activities, a clown and balloon art.  Keller Williams Realty  will be there handing out balloons to all the kids and anyone young at heart.

Mayor Anise Parker plans to attend the event to make a proclamation regarding our great community.

Don’t miss out on the fun; there are lots of beautiful trees giving us shade for the event!  See you there!

Farmers’ Market at Rice University


Pictured above is a typical haul of mine from a weekly Farmers’ Market.  For busy families near the Texas Medical Center and Rice University, the Rice University Farmers’ Market on Tuesdays at 3:30-7 p.m. is the answer!  Enter off University Blvd. near the stadium and find over 30 vendors present every week, selling everything from organic baby food to dog biscuits.  I depend on the peach growers in the summer!  The fruit is delicious and they never last at my house until the next Tuesday!  Find a home where you can walk to this market or just have a very short drive.

Support these local farmers who bring organic and sustainable garden produce to the market!  Surprise the cook by stopping by after working at the Medical Center; you’ll be glad you did!
