Hollywood Farmers Market + protest

We went to the Hollywood Farmers market on sunday. It's the best market around, and we try to go most weekends. There are some really good tomatoes, figs and white nectarines we get regularly.

There are a few regular performers; the reggae musician who gets kids to help out with the bongos, the jazz band with the bass player who rarely wears shoes, the blind flamenco guitarist and the asian-american cover song guy who I swear no one can make heads not tales of.

In a nutshell, the Hollywood Farmers market is a good morning, with lots of characters and a celebrity here and there. Well on this sunday there was also an immigration rally. We watched for a few minutes, but they seemed to just be getting all wound up and not going to ever get marching. It almost seemed like there were more police than protesters when we rode our cruiser bikes there. Also most of the roads in Hollywood were closed. It was sort of a mess.
