Drawing Diary: Why I'm Not a Farmer's Market Person

7 years ago

I know I'm supposed to like the farmer's market. But I've tried and now I admit: not for me. Here's why.

1. Overhyped Coffee The line for Blue Bottle coffee (they make one cup at a time) was ridiculously long.

I waited for farmer's market coffee once and nearly had a stroke, micromanaging the barista's time with my evil eye, waiting for 2+ minutes for my single cup. AND I couldn't taste a difference. 
2.  It's really expensive.
I ended up buying potatoes but I was sort of mad at myself. Like I'd become a sellout.
My grocery store has a beautiful selection of locally sourced organic produce. So why was I not shopping there instead?
3. Not designed for shopping.
No baskets, no counter space, no personal space. People were getting slightly aggro at the checkout.
4. Final reason
