You’ve got bad eating habits if you use a grocery cart in 7-Eleven

Farmers market uniform

Things we do on the weekend include chores (we try to do this as soon as possible to get it out of the way), take a nap (usually just me), estate sales (still looking for Action Comics no. 1 in mint) and go to farmers markets. Farmers markets are  great for people watching,  buying fantastic produce and a chance to meet local growers.

After going to so many farmers markets around San Diego county, we noticed not only a trend in typography but also in fashion — some of which I’m guilty of doing myself.

What else is a fashion trend at farmers markets? Am I missing something?

(BTW Graphic is done by this dude that I married.)

  1. SO TRUE.
    My sunglasses are twice that size cause I like to look like a jet pilot. Also I don’t have a dog, but my companion is a crazed child in a Batman shirt.

  2. Ohhh. How I miss San Diego farmers markets! Sigh. That does look a bit like me…though I’m a rule follower and always left the canine companion at home.

    1. Yeah, I should have put an asterisk that unless it’s a therapy dog, most animals, at least the ones I’ve been to have to stay a few feet away from any food stand. Most people disregard that.

  3. The canine rule is most definitely ignored at the OB Farmer’s Market. Then again, it’s OB and they tend to ignore rules in general. 🙂

  4. Ah, I was going to comment that I must not go to farmers markets because I don’t have any of those clothes, but maybe it’s because I can’t bring my dogs. (More like I’m just an idiot).

  5. I’m usually sporting the messy ponytail, but I’ve been trying to avoid wearing yoga pants in public (except for 12-hour plane rides!) We still take the produce bags for some veggies, but then everything gets placed into our reusable bag… isn’t that a required item to even step foot into a farmers market? And there are always dogs at the Poway FM. But not ours. Our dogs are too big!

  6. You forgot the Ranger Rover/Hummer accessory.

    I show up like I rolled out of bed trying to beat the midday crowds so I can go back home and go back to sleep knowing my lovely veggies haven’t been touched all day by people. 🙂

  7. In San Francisco, the outfit is a little different, and there are a few more optional accessories.
    For the outfit
    – jorts or skinny jeans with the right leg rolled up

    – bicycle helmet
    – granny cart
    – one or two children, ages newborn to three years
    – companion, neither male nor female

  8. Oh my goodness, this couldn’t be more true. I’m totally guilty and totally in love with your graphic. I’m ashamed to say that it absolutely never occurred to me to not bring my puppy. She loves all the people and other puppies, and since there are other dogs there I never thought twice about it. I’ll keep her away from the food next time, that is kind of gross.

  9. Oh, how true. Except of course those strollers that are more and more becoming accessories (and of course the darlings inside). Also at ours tons of people have old fashioned wicker baskets which I adore!

  10. OMG. People who dress like other people are so funny! You’d never find this hilarious sameness in any other location. Kudos to you for your insightful social commentary.

  11. Very Nice website. I just finished mine and i was looking for some ideas and you gave me a few. Did you develop the website alone?


  12. This is a truly very good read for me. Must admit that you are one of the greatest bloggers I ever saw.Thanks a lot for posting this hilarious post. Best wishes, Yahaira.
