  • Navigating Your Local Farmers Market

    Spring is here, and with it comes a bountiful selection of fruits and veggies. There’s no better place to shop for them than at your local Certified Farmers Market, where the benefits are numerous. “A CFM makes buying in season easy,” says Michael Beckman, chef and owner of Palm Springs hot spot Workshop Kitchen + Bar (workshoppalmsprings.com). “If it’s there, it’s in season. The vendors at CFMs are all local growers, so you know nothing has been crated in from a far-off land. You’re also getting your produce much fresher than you would through a three-tier system used in a large operation.” Below, Beckman gives us a few tips to best navigate our local certified farmers market.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEWS

  • Cheyenne Jackson Sings the Songs of an Older Era

    Few would argue that Cheyenne Jackson was destined for the stage. The openly gay 38-year-old actor, singer and songwriter’s first leading role on The Great White Way in All Shook Up earned him a 2005 award for Outstanding Broadway Debut. Since then, he has cemented his theater-star status with acclaimed stage performances (Finian’s Rainbow, 8, Xanadu) while also making a name for himself on the small screen (30 Rock, Glee, Behind the Candelabra) and in film (United 93, The Green). For his latest project, Music of the Mad Men Era, he’ll be singing standards from the ’50s and ’60s—with contemporary tracks thrown in for good measure—at the Walt Disney Concert Hall on April 26.

    “Oh, thank God you’re here! I’m parched!” 

    Angelyne pushes past me in a mini-dress amplifying her notorious cleavage as she announces to the entire French Market Place—one of her favorite West Hollywood hangouts—that she needs the “pink drink” right away.

    “The blackberry lemonade, perhaps?” the waiter asks, appearing from nowhere.

    “Yes, the pink one!” Angelyne demands.
