    Farmers' Markets are Beloved, but the Government May Cut Their Funding | Civil Eats
    America's current farm bill expires at the end of September 2018, leaving less than a year before lawmakers could begin to make cuts to a variety of federal programs affecting food and farming. And, despite America's growing love for farmers' markets, it's looking unlikely that the Farmer Markets Promotion Program (FMPP) will be prioritized in the coming bill.

Self Portrait in Cambridge Has Apparently Closed

The address for the now-closed Self Portrait was 377 Walden Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138.

    Boston Restaurant Talk
    It looks like a French bistro in Cambridge has closed after only being in business for approximately a half year. According to a source who got in touch yesterday afternoon, Self Portrait on Walden Street in the Huron Village neighborhood appears to be shut down, with a message from Bronwyn in Somerville's Union Square (which is affiliated with the restaurant) saying last night that Self Portrait was actually still in operation.

    A 'block of modern' charms Cambridge
    Just a 10-minute walk from Cambridge's historic Avon Hill, where post-Civil War Colonial Revivals, Mansards and Victorians keep the neighborhood a virtual museum, is a bright block of modern. It's the newly built, International-style dwelling at 9 Donnell St. - a smooth, gray rectangular structure that shuns the lavish ornaments of old, and instead decorates itself in mod-ish minimalism.
