Documentaries I Like: The Greenmarket: One Farmer's Story

Are you into farmer's markets? I love them primarily because you get fresh, local food -- but it's also great because you can actually interact with the people who grow your food. Below is a brief documentary (under ten minutes) about one farmer, Rick Bishop, who brings his goods to a the Union Square Greenmarket in New York City. It's a nice look at both the farming experience and the farmer's market experience -- and it makes me want to go and buy some produce right now.

Warning: starts with an ad! This is not a Kraft-sponsored documentary, though the first five seconds makes it seems like it's gonna be. I take that back -- I think this is a Kraft-sponsored documentary, given the in-film "sponsored by Kraft" message at the one-minute mark, pointed out by an astute viewer. So, take it with a grain of salt. (Or Kraft salad dressing.)

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
