Phony People With Coffee Mugs At Farmers Market

Latest posts by John (see all)

I go to the local farmers’ market every Saturday morning. I buy fruits, vegetables, bread, and lemon. I like to put a slice of lemon in my drinking water.

I wake up around 8 am and splash some water on my face before I head out to the market. I usually wear the same shirt that I wore on the bed.

I seldom see some phony people at my farmers’ market.

I see some people obviously made up for the occasion. They wear lounge-wear, but they look perfect. Their hair looks semi-messy, but the hair would maintain perfect shape and volume. It’s all made up.

And they ALWAYS carry coffee mugs.

We don’t bring a shopping cart to the farmers’ market. We carry stuff in our hands (baskets). We need three hands. Why bring a coffee mug to the farmer’s market? I guess they enjoy looking hip and earthy at the farmers’ market. But, to true farmers’ market shoppers like me, they are pretentious and annoying.

Update 2021 – I want to delete this blog post.
