It started with a single Facebook post. Now Artsakh Gardens Market is showcasing Armenian food producers, farmers, bakers, craft masters, and jewelers every Sunday on a shade-covered lawn in front of Glendale Central Library. The mostly home-based vendors arrive from Glendale to Fresno; goods range from a 16-ingredient carrot cake to chef-created charcuterie boards. A portion of proceeds go to relief organizations. (Source: Eater LA)

It was destined to happen: a major exhibition showcasing Star Trek’s ongoing impact on world culture, art, and technology. Over 100 rare artifacts, set pieces and props from 55 daring years have been beamed down for this fully immersive show, including Sulu’s original console and one of just two existing phasers from Series I. It’s set to stun. (Source: Skirball)
