If you've ever tried to secure media placements, you know it isn't as easy as one may think. You need to think like a journalist, write like a journalist and provide timely, accurate information. You need to be tenacious. Behind what may appear to be luck is a lot of hard work. Over the past couple of weeks, we at Kurman Communications have secured a number of terrific stories for our clients. If you miss any of these articles, we're making it easy to catch-up on your reading.

Chicago French Market (131 N. Clinton St., Chicago; 312-575-0306) is a European-inspired market offering an array of local produce, meats, seafood, breads, pastries, cheese and wine, chocolates, pastas, artisan-made goods, flowers and a seating area for customers.

This summer, U.S. Equities Asset Management works with three local farmers and Illinois Tollway to create a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) which brings seasonal, local produce to its customers. CSA programs traditionally drop off produce for residents in dense urban neighborhoods but are expanding to serve suburban communities. People who sign up for the CSA program can pick up their produce from Illinois Tollway Oases.

The deadline to sign up for fresh produce is today.
