A one-stop local solution

. June 6, 2012.

There’s never been more interest in eating locally produced food, and Ann Arbor’s Lunasa Market is offering a convenient way to do it. Created by Jane Pacheco and Dawn Thompson, Lunasa describes itself as an “online farmers’ market.” It’s a unique service which, for a monthly fee of $40, allows members to order goods from dozens of local producers for convenient twice-monthly pickup. Lunasa has been serving the Ann Arbor area through its warehouse on Jackson Road, and now it’s ready to expand. The greater Detroit area will have access to Lunasa’s bounty through the Douglas Foods/Maxwell’s Arts & Treasures warehouse at 32416 Industrial Rd. in Garden City. The Ann Arbor location hosts pick-up days on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, and the Garden City location will use the first and third Mondays. 734-330-4497. www.lunasa.us

Judy Banker’s Buffalo Motel

New album captures the permanence of memories When I talk to Judy Banker about her new album, Buffalo Motel, I can’t avoid my first question being about one particular song, “Haggerty.” I can’t wait for you to hear it in a live setting at The Ark on January 9. Even with headphones, a potent poignancy
