In these startling days of honest-to-goodness winter in East Texas, I’m sure I’m not the only one dreaming of spring—and the return of my Red Moon Farm delivery. I’ve started to mark the seasons by the contents of my farm box on a given week, much of which I didn’t know you could grow around here, like this spring’s peppery arugula, summer’s golden beets, and fall’s Japanese eggplant.
When the Rose City Farmer’s Market kicks off its spring season in April, it’ll be in a long-awaited new home: the parking lot of Bill’s Unclaimed Furniture downtown, directly across from the strip of small indie stores on Broadway known as “Off the Square.”“We wanted the location of the farmer’s market to be downtown all along,” says Jessica Bullock, a lead organizer of Rose City Farmer’s Market and the co-owner of Red Moon Farm, one of the market’s longest-running vendors.
For the first Loop issue of the year, we’re obsessed with food, drink, and farming. And we’re starting with a simple question: why doesn’t Tyler have more? More restaurants, for one thing — and we don’t mean chains. We mean homegrown offerings, made by Tylerites who help define our city through local produce and regional cuisine. We’ve seen a nice wave of new Latino restaurants and taco joints come out of Tyler’s northeast barrio and beyond in the last few years.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
