Weird People at the Farmer’s Market


Rhett went to the farmer’s market the other day, and he may have stumbled onto our future careers.

Comment below and tell us where the weird people in your town hang out.

So in New Jersey, I us to live in the town of Hamilton near Trenton where there is maybe 3 men that people have dubbed “The Hamilton Nazi” (even though there are more than one Hamilton Nazi) They walk around in full Nazi Uniform and they don’t do anything but walk around like this! In fact, there was one that went to Mecer County Community College who got beaten by college students for wearing this. They sometimes walk in to stores and buy things or ride on bikes but they don’t bother any one. They just dress up like a Nazi. The main one (around 50 years of age) has a HUGE white beard and instead of a army outfit is in what seems to be a lab coat but still obviously in a Nazi outfit. The other one appears to be much younger (prob 25) and is in an army outfit. And the last one is also in an army outfit but this man appears to be in his 30’s and he is the one who got beaten. They are never seen together and people question if they even know each other. Odd things.

I live in a small market town in England and we certainly have our fair share of strange folk. Added to that we have an equally bizarre local newspaper that reports on all these strange folk and their breaking news. Headlines such as ‘Carwash’ and ‘Fire crew called to chimney’. It all happens here you know!

no farmer’s market in nyc? have you been to union square on the weekends?

i live in bklyn next to the grand army plaza farmer’s market (in park slope). we don’t have harp players but we have plenty of snooty foodies, put-upon-hipsters, and multi-tasking supermoms. i’ll take erratic bongo players and predator look-a-likes any day.

I live in Portland OR and the weird people are Portland! You should check out the show “Portlandia” (at least the first episode) and you’ll see what I’m talking about. It’s really like that here. We even have bumper stickers that say “Keep Portland Weird”.

The neat thing I’ve noticed since becoming a mom and going on walks with my baby girl is that she brings the nice and friendly out of the weird. I’ll see people that I would normally be a little nervous around and they smile and talk baby talk to her. It’s cool to see it happen. It reminds me that weird people are people too. :-)

You have no need to worry Rhett; I live near San Francisco and I’ve lived in California my entire life and all of those things still seem weird to me.
