I read today in one of the multitude of emails I get that the farmer's market in my old neighborhood was starting up tonight. I had read about it but had never been. So this seemed like as good a time as any. The neighborhood has always been lower income and a bit of a melting pot and is even more so now. Asians, Hispanics, Whites and Blacks. The market was small; only 6 vendors if I recall correctly. But so interesting. I struck up a wonderful conversation with a little woman selling baked goods. And I bought some kimchee from a woman with several tattoos. Fermented on her kitchen counter. Am I brave or what? It'll either kill me or make me 10x stronger. The market was small and I felt too timid to photograph in that sort of setting, something I need to overcome. It was intimate as well as rough around the edges if that makes sense. So these are some pics from the hood before and after the market.
