Sunday Shopping in Hollywood

Just got back from Hollywood's farmer's market. Ooooh yeah. A weekly street party while you get the shopping done. Here there's, for example, good live music (the buskers are actually good and not just playing three chords on loud rock guitar - Santa Monica buskers take note), fun things for kids to do, free movie test screenings to be had, etc. Here, gender takes values in a continuum as opposed to a discretuum, and overall it's a much more diverse and, yes, fabulous crowd.


Do make comparison to yesterday's haul if you wish, but there's no intentional significance in it. Also, I just realised that I left out of the photo a crop of lovely peaches and nectarines. Too heavy for the basket. No, I'd not seen purple cauliflower for sale before today either. Very interested to try. Off do do some physics now. Will tell you about some of it shortly, I promise. -cvj
