Weekend: Owl & Thistle Celebrates 1st Anniversary, Farmers Market, Altered Landscapes, Reading Series

ILFA was totally AWOL this week, on account of some traveling and some grad student work. Sadly, this meant I missed posting about the Seeds in the Middle Crown Heights Farmers Market on Thursday, the return of Sound Baths at Force and Flow on Friday, a campaign kickoff at 739 Franklin on Wednesday, and in all likelihood, an edition of the Filmwax Film Series or Brooklyn Unplugged at Franklin Park, a sing-along at Little Zelda's, and a Secondary Sound Jam Night at Breukelen Coffee House. The truth is, there's far too much going on in Crown Heights these days for one blogger to try and cover, even when said blogger is not asleep at the wheel. Thankfully, there's still the Brooklynian Message Board, Prospect Heights Patch (who do a fair bit of Crown Heights coverage), Sonja Sharp at DNAInfo, and now, a new blog by a local resident, I Should Take You There

That said, there's still some fun stuff going on this weekend! Today, check out the Farmers Market at the Walt L. Shamel Community Garden (Dean btw Franklin and Bedford) from 8am-2pm, and then swing over to the Owl & Thistle General Store for their 1st Anniversary (full details below).
