The Historic McKinney Farmers Market boasts one of the area's most charming settings, with farmers and artisans set up around the historic buildings of Chestnut Square. But nearby construction has put a cramp on parking, and the market has temporarily relocated to one block north of the downtown square, where it will remain till the first of the year.
Texas peaches may have fizzled this year, but not Texas wine grapes. The 2017 grape harvest is going gangbusters. Not that spring wasn't a nail-biter for growers. The mild winter that crippled peaches meant early buds on grapevines -- the kind that are easily taken out by a ruinous late-spring freeze. "Everyone was expecting to get hammered," says Dr. Russell Kane, author of The Wineslinger Chronicles: Texas on the Vine (2012) and Vintage Texas wine blog.
There's something endearingly old-fashioned about Leslie Luscombe's market in Anna, held every second and fourth Sunday in the Luscombe Farm's dirt-floor, corrugated-tin hay barn. Kids may even thrill to a pony ride as a horse and pony wait outside in the shade. The market setup inside the barn is small, cooled by a fan and made up of neighbors and friends. And Leslie's there with her wonderful spicy jams and super-smooth habanero peanut butter.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
