We love Urban Acres, a local organic market that focuses on supporting Texas farm families, so we couldn’t wait to announce its new partnership with Potager Cafe and the UTA Office of Sustainability. Starting March 23, Urban Acres will open a co-op style produce farm at Potager’s “Other Stuff” Store on 208 S. Mesquite Street (Arlington) every other Friday from 3 to 5:30 pm. Those of you who want to save the planet, eat more conscientiously, and help local farmers make a living can kill three birds with one stone by picking up your groceries (meats, artisanal cheese, fair wage coffee, local raw honey, etc.) at Urban Acres’ nine locations.

We told you about Enticed Shaved Ice in the middle of an extraordinarily hot August. One commenter wrote: “Excellent product and friendly people.” How right they are. But shaved ice doesn’t sell well when it’s raining and windy and the temperature dips below 40 degrees. So owners and entrepreneurs Sydney Brown and Lauren Noblett decided to sell something hot. Like PIZZA. Today the send word they are expanding their “fleet” to add TX Delizioso, a truck offering pizza and other Italian entrees plus soups and salads. They are also an official Go Texan partner, using as much local product as possible. We have mobile pizza ovens–Il Cane Rosso and Cavalli–but TXDelizioso is Dallas’ first pizza truck.
TX Delizioso has already obtained their permits and is in the process of finalizing their menu. Look for them to roll soon.2 Comments »
