"Culture is not a mere afterthought or an add-on, but a key contributor to urban economic growth. But in fueling neighborhood growth and development, it has also played a role in rising housing prices, contributing to gentrification." - http://bit.ly/2JQfCVF

    Does Culture Follow Economic Development in Cities, or Cause It?
    A new study, drawing on 1.5 million images of cultural spaces in London and New York, finds that cultural capital is a key contributor to urban economic growth. One of the big questions in urbanism is the degree to which culture shapes economic development.

Did you know that local Farmer's Markets are culturally significant institution beloved by generations of Americans before us? Dating back to 1730's in Lancaster, PA, locals would meet together at a designated lot in the center of town. Farmer's Markets have always played an important social role of sharing culturally shaped food practices and traditions, from Resident to Resident, Farmer to Resident, and vice versa. Come Meet us at the Market! Shop for fresh fruits and veggies, support local full-time farmers, and get an opportunity to hang-out with neighbors, enjoying music, playing games, and learning more about events happening in the community, all conveniently located on the Ashmont MBTA Plaza!

    "Meet Me at the Market" - The Evolution of a Farmers Market
    What better time than National Farmers Market Week to explore the history of farmers markets in the United States? Farmers markets are a critical ingredient to our nation's food system, and date back to 1730 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in the United States. "Meet me at the Market" has for decades been a phrase commonly heard by Lancaster citizens.

Why Shop at the Farmers Market? Being Fresh I...

Why Shop at the Farmers Market? Being Fresh Is a Good Thing! – While store bought fruits and veggies are usually seven to fourteen days old by the time they hit grocery store shelves, at the farmers market you’re buying fruits and veggies picked just hours earlier. This means you can expect produce that stays fresher, longer. Selling at the farmers market, farmers can choose flavor over shelf-life.

    Farmers Market
    Farmers Markets are special! So why buy your groceries at the farmers market instead of the grocery store? Fresh - While store bought fruits and veggies are usually seven to fourteen days old by the time they hit grocery store shelves, at the farmers market you're buying fruits and veggies picked just hours earlier.

LED Bulb Swap @ Riverfest (Sat. June 2nd, 11a-6p) Calling all Cambridge residents! Come get free LED Bulbs at the Cambridge River Festival this Saturday! From 11a-6p at the Cambridge Side Galleria, the Cambridge Energy Alliance will be swapping up to three incandescent or CFL lightbulbs for LED bulbs. LED lightbulbs have many benefits. For example, LED lightbulbs: - use 5-6 times less energy than incandescent bulbs - use 40% less energy than CFL bulbs - completely mercury-free - last up to 20 years We are offering standard A19 and BR30 LED lightbulbs, which will fit most lamps/fixtures and can be used for recessed lighting. Exchanges are limited to 3 per household, until supplies run out. The CEA wants to help residents live more efficiently and switching to LED bulbs is a great place to start!

    Final plans for traffic safety improvements in Porter Square were presented Tuesday, updated from a form presented Jan. 18 but not erasing fully the strong opposition by residents and cycling activist groups. The presentation had the square's current five-phase traffic signal cycle (including one for pedestrians only, and another to leave the mall parking lot) still being replaced by a simpler three-phase cycle.

⁉️ Did you know? 1 in 10 Massachusetts residents can't reliably predict where their next meal is coming from. That's why we're supporting the Project Bread's Walk for Hunger & 5K Run – 50th Celebration this Sunday. It is the oldest pledge walk in the country (that's right, Boston did it first!), and Project Bread is celebrating 50 years of action against hunger. Consider joining the walk or making a donation to Project Bread to help support programs across the state (including support of the Ashmont Farmers Market) that ensure everyone, regardless of income, can access nutritious food all year long!
