  The folks at The Food Market have truffles on their mind -- black truffles, white truffles, black and white truffles together.  Chef Chad Gauss will be featuring those lovely truffles at 7 p.m. Thursday in a "One-Night Truffle Dinner. " The four-course menu, plus dessert, will be served in the Hampden restaurant's lower-level communal dining space, The Private Kitchen -- which we were just waiting for the right time to tell you existed. This is that time. The four-course menu includes a black-truffle Brussels sprouts Caesar salad, a soy and white truffle tuna tartare, black and white lobster tail with risotto and truffled red meat with potatoes and rosemary.

The Avenue's newest addition, The Food Market, successfully combines a clean industrial aesthetic with an approachable and affordable menu, and their cocktail menu is no different. A list of all-time favorites and tweaks to classic cocktails populate the list, including everyone's favorite from New Orleans: the Hurricane. Or as The Food Market calls it, the Hampden Hurricane. The recipe for any Hurricane is a straightforward mixture of dark and light rum, loads of passion fruit syrup and lime, which normally results in an almost sickeningly sweet fruit bomb in your mouth.

Residents of one of Baltimore's many "food deserts" will gain more access to fresh meats and produce when what officials say is the city's largest grocery store opens Thursday in Howard Park. The 67,000-square-foot ShopRite store reflects a push to bring healthier food options to neighborhoods that have long been without a full-service food market. "When you have an environment that is lacking in fresh food options, it will be harder for you to be healthy," Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said.

The Food Market is the restaurant that everyone wanted. The new Hampden hot spot from Chad Gauss, formerly of the City Cafe, has been open only for five weeks, but it established itself as a favorite in no time flat. As executive chef at City Cafe, Gauss performed the neat trick of satisfying a conservative customer base while raising their expectations. It was a brilliant balancing act, but with a place of his own - his partner is Elan Kotz, a front-of-house veteran of Aldo's in Little Italy - Gauss gets to be Gauss.

Even in frigid weather, Ginger Myers' pigs are happy. "As cold as it gets, the pigs are out there, snorting and playing like kids bundled up and running around," says the owner of Evermore Farm , a family-owned livestock and produce farm in Westminster. Myers is one of many farmers in the Baltimore area who believe that running a farm under the principles of "good stewardship" is the right approach for farmers, animals, consumers and the region as a whole.

Metro Food Market, the Baltimore area's second-largest supermarket chain, is closing two of its stores as part of a strategy to strengthen the company's standing in an increasingly competitive market. Metro, which has 20 stores in the area, will shut down its Columbia grocery, in the Oakland Mills Village Center, and a store on York Road in Cockeysville on April 14. Neither store was profitable, Metro President Bill White said yesterday. "If you have unprofitable stores, you take them out of the mix, and that allows you to work with the stores that are profitable," White said.

Tidy white farmhouses here look like they could have fields of Iowa corn growing behind them. Breezy porches face the green Forest Park Municipal Golf Course, where the crickets just sounded their last notes of 2001. Here and there, the paint is peeling and the roof needs repair. The modern face of Howard Park is trying to dust off its wrinkles, from its neglected commercial district with a faded movie theater-turned-church to a shuttered supermarket that's forced an aging population to shop elsewhere for necessities.

The next day, Ibrahim came back with his three children - not knowing it was Friends and Family Day, a special pool party for the public. Both the event and admission to the pool were free from 1-3 p.m. Sunday. "Today, we got lucky," said Ibrahim, 45, as he held his pool-drenched son, Lucas, 3, in a towel in his arms. "Still, $2 is a pretty good deal.
