Day 37: Cover a farmer’s market

October 9, 2010 § 2 Comments

I think it is the fate of every beginning journalist to cover a local farmer’s market. At least when you are limited to small Illinois suburbs like Glenview and Skokie and Morton Grove. Today I visited the Glenview Farmer’s Market to take photos and record some interviews for an audio slide show. While there, I talked to a couple of dairy farmers and got some face time with this cow. She was a little bit shy when I started to get all up in her business, but I snapped a shot just as she started to blush and turn away. It was really quite a hoppin’ place. A candidate for state representative, Howard Chang, was wandering around schmoozing vendors and local shoppers. I saw his sign in a bunch of  yards on the way home. Sadly, I wasn’t able to get an official statement from him on the state of the farmer’s market because he was too busy running around eating free samples. What’s on the schedule for next week, you ask? A pumpkin carving contest? A kitty beauty pageant?  A new pothole on Dempster Street? Stay tuned.

    Demptster Street? That’s almost as bad as the street my dad grew up on, Tinkle Street. Teachers never believed him when he told them where he lived.
